You've all heard the tale before so I'll just summarize it quickly here. In this version you have your Little Red Hen (who evokes hen-ness with every step) as well as a cat, a dog, and a mouse. She plants wheat, farms it, takes it to the mill, and bakes it into a cake. Does anyone else help? Nope. Every time she asks (and she gives them more than one chance, to be fair) they answer in the negative. Then she bakes a delicious you-can-smell-it-off-the-page chocolate cake and surprise surprise, suddenly she's everyone's best friend. But it's no cake for you, layabout critters. Having learned their lesson the other animals now help the hen when she asks them and cake is had by all.
Now I'm a fan of corgis. Call me a Queen Elizabeth wannabe, but I just think they're the sweetest looking breed of pup available on the market today. A few children's book illustrators have put their mark on that particular brand of doggie as well. It's hard to imagine anyone aside from Tasha Tudor including a corgi in a story, so credit Susan Gaber for her vision. Now, Gaber's thick paints in this story evoke a kind of early Americana classic look.Read more ›

Great story of how working together allows you to share with others. Only because there is a lot of something doesn't mean you're automatically going to get a piece.Published 16 months ago by Angelica Rios
