The Little Red Hen is a fantastic read for all children within KS1. This particular version of the book has fantastic illustrations to support a great story.

This is a winner. Familiar in its traditional telling and large, colorful, witty illustrations, but surprising in a twist that allows the lazy rooster and raton juguetón to redeem themselves. There's also a detailed recipe for homemade bread in the back matter. Important verbs in the text are bold, as are the repeated responses of the rooster and mouse. I might order the edition with the accompanying CD.
A lovely version of the Little Red Hen story. It includes a happy ending where the next time Hen finds some wheat everyone pitches in to help it grow and to eventually make it into bread so they can all share. And it includes the story on cd.
I liked the way the lazy rooster and mouse learned that not helping meant not sharing in the rewards; so that they then mended their ways and helped the little red hen the next time around. The 3D cut paper and collage illustrations are beautiful.
I liked this version of The Little Red Hen. At first the hen gets no help and eats the bread by herself. The second go around she gets help and is able to share her bread. The illustrations were great. I loved how it looked like paper scraps.
