The Little Red Hen is one of those timeless classics that children for generations have loved to read. It is a story with a moral that our parents and grandparents read when they were young. No doubt our grandchildren will be reading it as well. It is a wonderful story about the values of sharing, working and team work.
This version of “The Little Red Hen” is an eBook that is designed to be read on any model Kindle, iphone, ipad, pc, android, or blackberry enabled device. It is full of beautiful color and black and white illustrations that complement the storyline and help bring the book to life for young readers.
The Little Red Hen tells of a mother hen who collects some wheat seeds, plants them, harvests the crop, has the wheat made into flour, and then bakes some bread. At each stage she asks the other farmyard animals to assist her but they decline. However once the bread is made they all want some but red hen declines to share with anyone else except her chickens, the obvious moral being that if you don’t work you don’t reap the rewards.
The story has a nice rhythm that children pick up on, remember and repeat once they have heard the story a few times. For those reading to children, if you create unique voices for each of the characters in the story, it really brings the story to life and children love it.
This book is just as relevant today as when it was first written and should be required reading, especially by politicians who are into pork barreling. It is also a great resource for team building if you are looking for training material.
