THis is a great story that has been around for years and never gets old. It tells the story of a hard working hen and her lazy neighbors that dont want to help with the labor but yet want to share in the goods at the end. This is menatlity of people that we run into in life. Greaat book to read to kids about hard work and the fact that it always pays off, whether you have people helping you or not. It also is a great lesson on how you cant depend on everyone or call everyone your friend.
