Once upon a time there was a gingerbread man. And he was a cookie. (He is not an eating cookie; he’s a pretend cookie). He lived on the cookie tray with the polka dots. The cookie was a gingerbread man because gingerbread mans are on Christmas. He played on the cookie tray. And he “delean” for the friend that he loved. (“Delean” means you have a friend that’s really important). And the gingerbread man was the leader of the cookie tray. He wanted a race car for Christmas. He raced it all around the room with the polka dots. The end.
