The Little Red Hen by Byron Barton


The Little Red Hen by Byron Barton

Byron Barton presents a fresh retelling of the well-loved folktale of The Little Red Hen. The little red hen grows grain, threshes wheat, bakes bread, and feeds her chicks-all by herself, without any help from her lazy friends. Young readers will learn a valuable lesson about teamwork from this classic tale. Mr. Barton's simple words, bold images, and imaginative use of color have made his many picture books perennial favorites with young children. Supports the Common Core State Standards
