About This Book

A classic folktale about the hardworking hen and her freeloading friends, retold for beginning readers

The Little Red Hen works hard — all alone! — to turn her wheat seed into flour, while the goose gossips, the dog naps, and the cat preens. But when her lazy friends smell the fresh bread baking, they're eager to help her eat it!

In this easy-to-read rendition, even the youngest listeners will enjoy the classic folktale about hard work and it's tasty reward.

Lucinda McQueen's active illustrations show in vivid detail how a few grains of wheat can be eventually made into bread. Her pictures perfectly capture the character of each animal of this classic folktale, while her simple storytelling teaches even the youngest readers important lessons about work and responsibility.
