    Favorite version of the Little Red Hen

    As a school librarian I've read many versions of this traditional tale. J.P. Miller's delightful illustrations make this my all time favorite! The students delight in the many antics of the characters, all drawn with such great humor and style. Having researched this great illustrator I found he also was one of a few select artists who worked in the creation dept. of Disney in the early days. His work is exceptional, it delighted me as a child and still does as an adult!

    The Little Red Hen

    My mother read this to me when I was 5. Almost 40 years ago. The work ethics have stuck with me and I thoroughly enjoy teaching my grandchildren the ethics of work, sharing, cooperation not to mention the great learning process of seeing bread emerge from a simple seed!

    The natural consequences of self-reliance and laziness

    A little hen reaps the rewards of her labor and self-reliance. Her capable barnyard colleagues learn that laziness and greed have their consequences. Many adults could learn from this story.

    The message, "Then I will do it," will stay with children and adults for a lifetime.

    Simple, yet profound story

    The Little Red Hen tells a simple, yet profound story. It explains the agricultural cycle: soil preparation, planting seeds, caring for plants, harvesting, grinding wheat into flour, baking flour into bread, and eating the bread. It also raises the economic-political issue of sharing with those who declined to help produce the bread. Every child should know this story.

    The Little Red Hen

    I was happy to find this childhood classic to add to my Golden Books collection. It renews the currently politically-minded concept: to whom should the "spoils/bread" go, the one who worked to achieve or to anyone who asks.

    Also recommend: Mark Levine's book, Libery and Tyranny
