The Little Red Hen


The Little Red Hen
great read aloud


We talked about the importance of play... and of course, work is equally important.  Lessons early in childhood about work at home and work at school would be beneficial to that child when he/she is a grown up. All people and animals work each day; it's what makes us sleep well at night.  What kind of work do you like to do? 
 The Little Red Hen is a perfect read aloud for PreK -Grade 1 and older.  It's a classic ... and one of those books we go back to ...to read again. It's fun and children love the story.   There are many versions but the story remains in tact.  
The author's message? 
work hard...help out...share...plan ahead... 
rewards and fairness
