She teaches a fine moral, or work-ethic.
She does so in an enjoyable, repetitive way.
An imaginative reader can add animal noises, and suitable character voices for the lazy creatures who will NOT help, but who, like J. Wellington Wimpy, would gladly eat ... Great fun to read to young children!!
This is a classic, of course.
Let me add two comments.
First, maybe 100 years ago, versions of this story were used as reading primers.
If it worked then, it may work now.
Second, this is NOT the original version that Little Golden Books issued in the late 1940s.
Certainly the J.P. Miller pictures are delightful.
But so were the originals.
I do not have my childhood copy at hand to check, but Leonard Marcus's superb exploration of LBs, "Golden Legacy", p 52) lists, with cover art, the FIRST TWELVE LGBs, including, "The Little Red Hen", illustrated by Rudolf Freund, who also illustrated the first version of "The Animals of Farmer Jones", later a Tibor Gergely classic!
Why can't we have both versions?
Ditto for the early and later versions of "The New Baby", by the early Eloise Wilkin and the later Eloise Wilkin.
