This folk-tale explores the process of growing wheat as well as the value of hard work. The little red hen plants, reaps, takes the wheat to the mill and makes it into dough all on her own and without and help from her friends. In the end, the hen offers her freshly baked loaf of bread which she made from the wheat she sowed but when her friends say they will help her eat it, she replies "No, I will eat it myself." The moral I get from the story is that you reap what you sow, and that it takes time and hard work to reap the rewards of whatever it is you do. This is a great book to present the value of hard work to children. This book would also be good to teach sequencing and touch on Earth science.
