Author: L. R. Hen
Little Red Hen needs help planting her grains of wheat. But when she asks the dog, the cat and the goose, they are all too busy to help her. So Little Red Hen does it all herself. She grows the wheat, harvests it, turns it into flour, and bakes it into bread. Suddenly, the others are ready and willing to help her eat it... but will she let them?
