A retelling of the traditional tale of the little red hen whose lazy friends are unwilling to help her plant, harvest, or grind the wheat into flour, but are willing to help her eat the bread she makes from it. In this version, story continues with her later finding a second grain and everyone willing to help her. Includes a recipe for whole wheat bread
In this version of the familiar tale, when the barnyard animals who refused to help her plant and tend a seed ask to play under the "great green whispery tree" that Little Red Hen grew, she says no, but her chick thinks that answer is mean
