With glorious, breathtaking illustrations The Little Red Hen by Jerry Pinkney is a favorite folktale told in a simply wondrous format. The little red hen finds some seeds and asks all her barnyard friends to help her plant, cut, and thrash them, with no luck. She then asks for one of them to help her take them to the mill, and, finally, bake the bread. They all refuse. But, when the mouth-watering aroma escapes from her oven, all her barnyard friends want to sample her hard work. A lesson in growing, nurturing, and cooperation...to see one's work come to a satisfying fruition and to enjoy the pleasures of a job well-done.
