The Little Red Hen by Diane Muldrow and J. P. Miller

The Little Red Hen is a humble, classic folk tale that packs a big punch β€” much like its eponymous protagonist. The premise is simple: a little red hen finds a grain of wheat and decides to get help to plant it. Alas, none of the other animals are willing to lift a finger, so she does it herself. This scenario repeats itself when it’s time to reap and mill the wheat into flour, make the dough and bake the bread.

The spunky little red hen’s admirable determination to get things done despite not receiving any help will get readers rooting for the hardworking protagonist, while the cathartic ending will be particularly satisfying for anyone with a good work ethic and who believes in the saying, ‘You reap what you sow’ (or nothing at all).

This particular Little Golden Book edition is a treasure that will appeal to all ages, thanks to the timeless story, simple yet engaging text, and beautifully luminous illustrations.
