This week we’re featuring the book The Little Red Hen for this week’s Virtual Book Club for Kids.
The Little Red Hen by Paul Galdone
The Little Red Hen is a classic tale about how we reap what we sow. When the hen asks a cat, dog, and mouse for help planting some wheat, she gets no takers: “‘Not I!’ said each of the farm animals. They won’t water, cut, or grind the wheat . . . or help bake a cake with it, either. You can only guess who gets to eat the cake by herself in the end?
