Title: The Little Red Hen
Author: Lillian Obligado
Date of Publication: January 1st 1920
Genre: Children's fiction.

During the weekend I read this book to my baby cousins. The story is about a little red hen who is baking bread. As she gathers all of the ingredients she asks her animal friends to help her. Instead they say no and leave her to do everything herself. The hen gets her revenge at the end when the animals want to eat her bread, but she says no because they were selfish and did not  help her.

My baby cousins absolutely soaked this up and were enchanted by this story which taught them a good moral lesson.
