The Little Red Hen
by Jerry Pinkney
This is a wonderful rendition of the classic story of The Little Red Hen. As I was reading along to the kids, we talked about how hard working and diligent the hen was and how lazy the other animals were. As with most versions of this story, the kids chimed in with "Not I" as the animals refused to help the hen. However, they were excited to see that the farmer in the story was "brown like them." This is, of course, a great story to teach about diligence! We enjoyed it!!!
