Full of pizzazz and adventure, The Gingerbread Girl takes children on an exploratory journey of emotions, survival challenges, and determination. Written from a trauma perspective, unlike the traditional Gingerbread Boy story, it has a different ending (SPOILER ALERT) that shows how even in the most challenging of situations, you can still remain in a place of personal power and confidence.

The Gingerbread Girl includes an in-depth social/emotional discussion guide written by Heather T. Forbes, LCSW. It is designed to be an example of how any traditional storybook can be used as a social/emotional learning experience for children. When we teach young children how to identify their emotional responses, they become better equipped to handle adversity and develop better self-regulatory skills that will serve them to remain in a place of power and control of their own actions.
