Learning about homophones (words that sound the same but have different meaning and spellings) and homonyms (words that sound alike and are spelled the same but have different meanings) is fun in this adaptation  of "The Little Red Hen."

Monkey is making a banana cream pie and needs help. Aunt Ant is busy going to visit her niece. Bee has too many things to do; the next shipment of honey is due. Monkey yells himself hoarse until Horse arrives, but Horse neighs and says nay. Lucky for Monkey, the friends finally pitch in by cleaning up banana peels and  get some pie after all.
