From Our Editors

In simple, rhythmic text and bold pictures, Barton retells the story of a little red hen who plants the seeds, cuts the stalks, and grinds the wheat into flour all by herself. And when the bread is baked, there is plenty for her three little chicks--but none for her lazy friends. Full color.
