    Edit Feb 21, 2019 Now that I am here in AZ permanently I am amusing myself and hopefully Mother by reading her some of my reviews After I read this one to her, we washed our hands and got her edition to compare the stories Turns out her version was by Walt Disney and was called The Wise Little Hen Her book was based on the Silly Symphony cartoon of the same name That cartoon premiered in 1934 and was the first ever appearance of Donald Duck The book came out in 1937, by the way Here is the link about the cartoon and here is the cartoon itself Mom and I had great fun with this, hope you do too Wow there are 56 pages of this title in the add book button, and 9 pages just by this author I had no idea The Little Red Hen was so popular I remember being allowed to read my Mom s cherished copy of this book, one she had when she was a little girl If I washed my hands and handled it carefully, I could spend as much time as I wished following the red hen around the barnyard.But this version at Gutenberg seems different from the one I spent so much time with years ago Not as smooth, not as poetic And it seems to me that the Little Red Hen asked for help in Mom s book, she did not merely try to get the other animals to do all the work the way she did here And why do I remember her saying Then I ll do it myself every time the animals said they would not help Here she just says I will.The illustrations in this 1918 version are cute, but I have to admit the Little Red Hen doesn t look like herself to me Mom s would have been from the early 30 s, and of course now I am eager to get another look at it and check out the gory details of author, publisher, and publication date As long as I wash my hands and handle the pages carefully, I m sure I will get to spend as much time as I want to with Mom s version of The Little Red Hen

    This was my favourite book as a child and the lesson serves us all well today.No one wants to help the little red hen do any work, but they all want to benefit from it.These days we would be told to share and forgive but people don t learn that way

    A hen finds a letter and decides to take it to the king to read it She starts her journey and runs into a fox The fox goes along with her, he climbs in her basket They walk by a river and the river wants to come too So, the river jumps in her basket She comes to a fire He comes too She gets to the palace The guard takes her to the king with her basket and letter The paper gets ruined because of the fox s muddy paws, wetness of the river and the burning of the fire The king gets mad and has the guard threw her, and her basket, in with the geese for dinner The geese chased her and she dropped the basket The fox chases the geese The soldier came back and left the gate open so the hen grabbed her basket and walked out the gate The people ran after the hen she dropped her basket and the river came out and blocked the way of the soldiers Sent boats to get across The hen continued to run with her basket Dropped the basket again and the fire came out and blocked the people The ashes made the hen speckled Her children were speckled and so forth I liked this book because of the repetition and the surprising turn of events throughout the story It is a great story to explain how some chickens are speckled This book teaches reading skills and comprehension.

    This book can be used to help promote discussion between children.It could be considered a controversial topic since the red hen did not share her bread However, you could read this to children and then have a discussion over what they think the hen should have done shared her bread or not shared The book is entertaining will keep kids engaged with the watercolor pictures and catchy sayings.
