Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

The Little Red Hen works hard to turn her wheat seed into flour, without any help from her lazy friends. But when they smell the fresh bread baking, they all are eager to help her eat it!

Beautifully illustrated, these nursery rhymes will capture children's interest and spark their imagination page after page, encouraging a love of reading that is vital to success in school and life.

It was a good story and very appropriate for toddler age children.
L. Wilkins
This story, above the others had a great moral that the kids could learn - we have to work to get rewards!
Jaci Patterson
This was one of my favorite books as a child and will be a favorite of my children too.

Read this to my granddaughter all the time & she loves & asks for it all the time. Even though she's only 2 years old, she understands the moral of not helping out means you don't get to enjoy the benefits of the bounty. She also likes the steps that The Little Red Hen has to go through to make the bread, & she helps me make cakes & sometimes the old fashioned way of bread - and she always wants to help & not be LAZY!

This story has a simple moral. You reap the fruit of your efforts. It is straightforward, yet the story is entertaining. The illustrations are great and this book is a must have for all toddler libraries. The point is driven home by the repetition of "not I" by the various animals when they are asked by the hen to help her plant the wheat. This was one of my favorite books as a child and will be a favorite of my children too.

My child loves animals, so he enjoyed the pictures of the farm and the storybook characters. Red Hen tells a nice lesson of the value of hard work and its rewards. It was a good story and very appropriate for toddler age children. A family favorite in our house.

Niece liked this storybook best compared to the Princess and the Pea and Wizard of Oz. She wanted to have it read to her again. Some of the phrases are repetitive and the twist was funny at the last part.

I purchased this book because I enjoyed it going up and I read it to my children. Now I'm a grandma and decided to start reading to my grandchildren and they love it, what surprised me the most is the price of this used (NEW) book, it wasnt used at all and I was able to personalize this book with their names in it so now they smile saying read my book.
this was one of many books I've purchased and love so much. I have recommended this to my children for home collections. even their cheap selves can afford this. Thank you soo much
