Little Red Hen, The

Reviewed by:

Recipe Ingredients: A busy little hen, a vain rooster, a messy mouse and a tiny grain of wheat. Mix them together and you get a refreshing look at an old folk tale, including an extension of the original tale, as well as a recipe for baking bread. The combination of brightly coloured collage illustrations and easy to read large text, brings an updated version of a familiar tale to children and librarians alike. Kindergarten teachers will enjoy reading aloud this version prior to baking bread with their class. The CD included has an oral retelling of the tale by Debra Messing, an American television actor. This book is useful for comparing different versions of the Little Red Hen folktale.
