The Little Red Hen finds a grain of wheat, and asks for help from the other animals to plant it. But no one is willing to help. Later she asks for help to harvest it, then thresh it, mill it, and finally bake the flour into bread. At each stage she gets no help. But when she asks who will help to eat the bread. Everyone says yes, but she eats it with her chicks, leaving none for others.

The Little Red Hen is an old folk tale, most likely of Russian origin and its most commonly used story when teaching children the virtues of work ethic's and personal initiative. This early childhood and junior school favourite also teaches children about the value of preparation, diligence and self discipline. There are heaps and heaps of preschool activity ideas to integrate this story across the early childhood curriculum.
