When the Little Red Hen finds some grain in the farmyard, she sets out to turn that grain into bread. First, she plants the grain. Then, she harvests the wheat. Then she bakes the bread. It's hard work, and throughout her project, she can't get any of the other animals to help out--until it's time to eat the bread, that is. And by then it's too late!

This classic story of the Little Red Hen is retold using humorous illustrations that depict an enterprising, but long-suffering hen. Both children and parents will enjoy the familiar story and charming illustrations.

The text serviceably relates the heroine's labors, from the planting of wheat to the baking of the bread made from that wheat, as well as the firm refusals of a trio of the hen's farmyard neighbors to help with the work.
