The runaway Piggy / El cochinito fugitivo by:James Luna
This is a Spanish and English bilingual altered version of the gingerbread boy, except the cookie in this story is a pig. Enjoy reading this fresh spin on this traditional tale.
Si le das una galletita a una ratón by:Laura Joffe Numeroff
This engaging story will have kids waiting for the little mouse's next move. Read the book entirely in Spanish then in English if time permits.
Mr. Cookie Baker by:Monica Wellington
Watch and enjoy the process of making and decorating cookies with the cookie baker. You can incorporate counting and shape recognition as you read the book.
The Doorbell Rang by:Pat Hutchins
This is a favorite that can be very interactive using counting. Use with a feltboard along with cookie shapes.
El niño de jengibre / The Gingerbread Boy
Soy el niño de jengibre
Por la boca tengo miel,
Por los ojos tengo pasas,
Y con ellos puedo ver.
En un horno me pusieron,
En un horno me cocí.
Y al abrir mamá la puerta,
Rapidito me salí.
Y corran, que corran, que corran.
Corran, que corran tras mí.
Por más que me corran, y corran,
No me alcanzarán a mí.

I am a gingerbread boy,
for my mouth I have honey,
for eyes I have raisins,
and with them I can see.
They put me in an oven,
in an oven I baked.
And when mother open the door,
I quickly jumped out.
They can run, run, run.
Run, and run behind me.
But no matter how fast they run,
They will never catch me.
Uno, dos, tres, CHO!
Uno dos, tres, CO!
Uno, dos, tres, LA!
Uno, dos, tres, TE!
Chocolate! chocolate!
Bate, bate, chocolate!
Bate, bate, bate, bate
Bate, bate,
