In this charming version of a favorite folktale, a slightly frantic but industrious hen finds the true meaning of Passover in spite of her lazy barnyard friends. Author’s Note, Recipe, Glossary.

A classic tale gets a Jewish twist, when Little Red Hen asks her friends for help making Passover matzah.

I'm usually skeptical of religious books, but this one was fantastic. The Little Red Hen makes a perfect Yiddish-speaking character, going about all the necessary tasks herself, while her "friends" Sheep, Horse, and Dog refuse to pitch in when asked. When they come knocking on her door at the beginning of her Seder, she relents and lets them in...but guess who has to do the dishes? A wonderful read-aloud.

The author cleverly folds Yiddish proverbs and the halacha of making matzah for Pesach into the tale of the Little Red Hen, demonstrating along the way the values of kindness and of forgiveness. (The hen's friends show their true repentance by doing the dishes after the seder.) Very well written, reads aloud well. True to its epigraph: "The greatest wisdom of all is kindness." - Marla S. ( )

One of my favorite fables; I'm always looking for win-win endings. ?This has a pretty good one.
The pictures are a little too cartoony for me - book lost 1/2 star for that.
A mensch forgives." ?áAnd then what? ?áRead it for yourself. :)" ( )
