Description

Byron Barton presents a fresh retelling of the well-loved folktale of The Little Red Hen. The little red hen grows grain, threshes wheat, bakes bread, and feeds her chicks--all by herself, without any help from her lazy friends. Young readers will learn a valuable lesson about teamwork from this classic tale.

Mr. Barton's simple words, bold images, and imaginative use of color have made his many picture books perennial favorites with young children.
