    A wonderful read from my childhood, one I d certainly suggest for other youngsters Whilst it is not my all time favourite childhood read I can still recall all the details of this one meaning it certainly left a lasting impression upon my young mind And isn t that what we want with children s books, for them to leave a positive lasting impression

    My daughter is a huge fan of Byron Barton s books This is another one that she loves, always reaches for and pages through on her own The illustrations are big, simple and captivating to my one year old The story follows a hen and her chicks as they grow wheat without the help of their other farm friends and eventually make bread The dialogue is short and perfect to hold her attention if I am reading it out loud to her.

    This version of The Little Red Hen is perfect for little ones The bold colors are engaging, and the simple, straightforward text is easy for them to follow My kids loved this one when they were a bit younger they chewed through two board books versions of it

    Byron Barton writes and illustrates The Little Red Hen, a funny beast tale about a little red hen and her three little chicks who do all of the work growing wheat and making it into bread The little red hen has three friends, a pig, a duck, and a cat, all who decide not to help the little red hen plant seeds, cut the wheat, thresh the wheat, grind the wheat into flour, and make the flour into bread, but when the little red hen asks if her three friends would like to help her eat the bread, they [...]

    Children can learn about the processes that are necessary for food to go from being grown in the ground, to ready to eat on the table This version of the story differs from the original Little Red Hen since the hen in this tale has three baby chicks After finding seeds, the hen goes through the process of planting, cutting, threshing, grinding, and baking to make bread All the while, her friends duck, cat, and pig refuse to help with the work By the end of the story, the three animals are than [...]

    Of course we all love the Little Red Hen story but I really enjoyed the vocabulary and illustration in this story I also accepted the fact that she only shared with her babies It teaches children that everyone will give you a chance to help out and in return you will get help as well it also teaches them that everyone does not have to share but they do need to be kind and the red hen did so they were not paying attention to all her hard work great for social and emotional domain also cooking and [...]

    This book can teach children work ethic skills, and the importance of taking initiative in efforts to get things done This can also teach children about the importance of fairness because it was unfair for the red hen to do all the work but then have the others reap the benefits The illustrations were not that interesting but I liked this book and would recommend it for teachers of pre k through second grade.

  14. Bunty Jah

    The little red hen is a book that s been around for generations This book teaches children to take initiative to do things on their own Loved the repitition of words and flow of the story Glad at the end the hen did not share with the pig, cat and dog since they did not help her I love reading this story to my girls and they enjoy retelling the story to me Child will also learn new vocabulary words in this book.

  15. Catherine

    Social emotional development, sharing, communication language, problem solving skills This book can be used to teach children about sharing, taking responsibility work and a host of other topics The Little Red Hen works diligently to provide for herself but her friends have other plans and choose not to help her but they want her to share the benefits of her labor Many discussions and lessons can be taught and learned from this story.

  16. Lindsay

    The Little Red Hen is a classic story that I remember as a child It has farm animals and a good message about helping, working, and what it means to be a good friend This particular version of the Little Red Hen is a good Spanish version that I used for Spanish and bilingual story time programs with a chicken chick rooster theme I used this as a participation story in which I had kids repeat the Not I parts It was fun.

  17. Sheniqua

    In this book, the little hen manages to do everything on the farm without any help from her pig, duck, and cat friends When the little hen finished all the tasks and bakes the bread, she doesn t share it with anyone but her chicks This book contains several shapes which we would be useful in teaching a lesson about 2 D or plane geometric figures I would also use this book to show students they should treat others how they would like to be treated.

  18. Kenia Soto

    Great Great Great book I have read many versions to this book but particularly like this one because of the numerous concepts that can be taught using it There are many color and shapes throughout the book The children can even talk about alternate endings It can be use to teach about how the Hen felt when her friends refused to help her It also have repetitive words for the children to join as the teacher is reading I would also incorporate a cooking lesson to go with this book.

  19. Josiah Smith

    A fun little story involving a little red hen and her friends The story is a colourful and creative tale of a chicken finding seeds and turning them into bread all the while her lazy friends don t want to help out It is a social emotional story that shows the benefits of helping others The book is brightly coloured and the illustrations seem to draw children in A lesson in friendship and being a team player.

    This is my favorite Little Red Hen book The pictures are colorful and bold and simple I like the way it story goes through the steps of planting, growing, harvesting, threshing, grinding, mixing, and baking I like to show the Bread book by Claire Llewellyn with it and show pictures of what a field of wheat looks like and how many foods are made with wheat I have wheat seeds I show them so they can see how hard they are.

  22. Dianna Adams-skafi

    I feel in love with this book because it introduced children to be mindful and courtesy to people because you might never know when you might want or need their assisstance It further introduce the morality of being kind and helpful to others because if you don t you just might lose out on something good if you GIVE GOD said that you will RECEIVE

    I asked one of our children s librarians to pick out some toddler appropriate fairy tales and mentioned Barton in particular I didn t know I knew this tale until I started to read it Its a great one for the very young It has bold illustrations with familiar farm animals It has a repetitive structure to follow along or join in And, it teachers a little moral of the reward of work.

  24. Elise Xuereb

    This version of The Little Red Hen by Byron Barton is a retold story He has added many different colorful characters The illustrations show how meaningful children s paintings can be These bright colors and simple forms grab the attention of children to listen It shows children that helping one another at first may be hard work, but in the end all are rewarded Genre Gardening

  25. Leila T.

    I get that this is a moral of the story book, but I still feel like it could have been a powerful ending if the little red hen had shown compassion magnanimity toward her friends, instead of having a serves you right tone The little kid loves it, though, and knows most of the text off by heart.

  26. Roslyn Ross

    The little red hen does not explain at the end why she will not share the bread with her unhelpful friends And she has three chicks who do nothing in the book and serve no purpose except as an excuse for her not sharing the bread that doesn t actually work.

  27. Destiny Coleman

    The Little Red Hen Big Book is a very vivid book This book will teaches children about responsibilities This book can also allow to teach about planting, farming or animals as well Great book for children 3 to 6 years old.

  28. Kristen

    So I wasn t in love with this book I do love the story of the Little Red Hen And the book was true to the story I just really didn t like the art style With so many versions of this story, I am sure I can find one that has better art.

  29. Patricia

    What a sweet, simple telling of this timeless story of enjoying the fruits of one s labor I ll definitely be using it in class with my younger grades students again
