Cookie Story Time.

A "healthy" take on the traditional Gingerbread Man story. Everyone except for the fox in the story is overweight and cannot catch the Gingerbread Man because they are too slow and out of shape. The pictures are a little disturbing though the story is cute and has an overall positive message.

I was looking for a version of the gingerbread man that would be storytime-friendly, i.e. not too long, bright colorful art, etc. This one seemed the closest to that criteria, but I still thought it was pretty dopey (and with the "be fit" theme they've added in, comes weirdly close to fat-shaming the characters??). However, the kids loved it! And the adults liked the twist at the end.
