Little Red Hen

Little Red Hen is an old English folktale retold by Florence Williams. Little Red Hen finds some wheat. Who will help her plant it? No one! Not the cat, or the pig, or the rat! A lot of hard work until it is ready to harvest. But will anyone anywhere help? No! Who do you think will get to eat the bread that is made from the wheat? This is a fun story about helping.

This classic English folk tale is read by Carolyn Smith.
