Just too cute!
The kids also love this one-a gingerbread who can't understand why the bakery items aren't speaking to him.
Great comparison to the tortilla-they shout different rhymes, different theme.
Desert animals chasing the tortilla-a little Spanish vernacular thrown in. My kids acted this out one year for the Christmas program-you should have seen the tortilla costume-priceless!
Also new vocabulary for them-had to look up what an omebashi plum was-apparently very good for you.
The kids' favorite-I think because they love pickles so much,
My new favorite-lots of new New Orleans vocabulary-chere!
Of course I love that she's smarter than the boy and gets away at the end!
You can compare and contrast-even doing a 3-circle venn diagram or triple bubble map. Compare the different animals chasing them, different settings. We've even charted who got away and who got eaten. I always have the kids write their own runaway food story-that's going to be an upcoming post!
