The Little Red Hen

The Little Red Hen

This Little Golden Book story is timeless and it's available in a board book version by Byron Barton for very young readers:

The Little Red Hen

This is the classic tale of a little, red hen who finds a grain of wheat.  She makes bread out of it, asking other farm animals for help every step of the way and they all refuse to lend a hand.  They all want her to share the bread with them in the end and she refuses.  Good for her!  For young readers, I like this story for it's repetitive text and simple pictures.  With kids that are even slightly older, the lesson of "you reap what you sow" is illustrated quite nicely.  The friends don't help the hen, so they don't get to enjoy the bread.  The hen works hard and enjoys the fruits of her labor.  Great lessons: hard work is rewarding; it's okay to ask for help when you need it and real friends pitch in.
