Fun gingerbread book comparison activities for your preschool, pre-k, tk, and kindergarten students

Gingerbread books!  There are so many story variations and I just can't get enough!  Students and teachers alike enjoy reading gingerbread books.  During gingerbread week, we read four different gingerbread books at circle time including The Gingerbread Boy, The Gingerbread Baby, The Gingerbread Girl, and The Gingerbread Cowboy and make a gingerbread book comparison chart.  I have made comparison charts for years but this year I finally made a one with pictures.  This way my preschool and pre-k students can "read" the pictures on the chart and have book discussions with peers using the chart independently.
