The Little Red Hen is a Traditional Literature book told in third person. Its setting is in an old country house that is occupied by a diverse group of animals; a dog, cat, mouse, and a hen. The summary of the book is about a little red hen that does all the work around the house and in the yard, while the other occupants of the home resort to laziness and feel entitled to the easy life. The little red hen ask for help numerous times and never has any luck getting help, until she makes some fresh baked bread, then everyone wanted to help her eat it. She taught them a lesson by not allowing them to have any and ate ever last piece. From that point on she had plenty of help and she was always willing to share her fresh baked goods.
I fee like this story is a great book to share with children of all ages, it’s easy to read, it’s easy to understand, and it has several life lessons that can be taught out of it. One lesson that can be taught out of this book and shared in the classroom is that hard work is completed much faster and easier when several people share the load of the work. You can also teach that if you don’t help with the work that needs to be done, you don’t get to enjoy the rewards of the work. Another interesting point I felt the story made was that every ones home is not made up of “traditional occupants” The children in the classroom may come from very diverse backgrounds and home lives, and that is okay, everyone still has a part to play and a role to fill.
