The Little Red Hen
Once upon a time there was a little red hen who lived all alone in her little house.
Not far from there, on top of a hill among some rocks, lived a sly fox. The fox, always hungry, sat outside his den and dreamed day and night of catching the little red hen.
"She must be so tender!" he thought. "I'd love to cook her in my big pot. What a great supper my old mother and I would have!"
But he knew it would not be easy to catch the little red hen. She was too smart and too careful.
