The Little Red Hen by: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt

 The Little Red Hen by: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt

The Little Red Hen is an old folk tale Classic, most likely of Russian origin. The best known version in the United States is that popularized by Little Golden Books.

The story is practical in teaching children the benefits of the work ethic and personal initiative.

The moral of this story is that those who show no willingness to contribute to an end product do not deserve to enjoy the end product: “if a man does not work, let him not eat.” (From Wikipedia)

We made the characters of the story very simple:  One copy of the characters of the story for each student, coloring them with color pencils, cutting them out, adding wood sticks on the back and finally retelling the story with them.
