Straightforward story and ending, simple cartoony illustrations, but an interesting beginning: we actually got to meet the housemates and learn what they'd rather be doing than chores. ( )

This book teachers a lesson. It is almost like a parable, and I think all very young students (k-1) should be read this book. ( )

This is a re-telling of the classic folktale, the Little Red Hen. It's no wonder this story has withstood the test of time as it is both easy for a young reader to catch on to while at the same time remaining fun and interesting. It is repetitive to a point where any young child can easily begin to pick up on certain words and follow along while reading with an adult. Loved the illustrations in this particular version. Highly recommend as a way to teach children about the importance of sharing and helping one another out. ( )
