Without a doubt, the favourite book this week has been The Little Red Hen by Jonathan Allen. It is a lift the flap book and the story is of a hen who wants to make bread from scratch – including growing corn!
She asks her farmyard friends to help, but they’re all too busy (apart from two little rodents) so the poor little red hen gets on and does it all herself.
Then at the end she asks the farmyard animals if they’d like to come to eat the bread with her. Of course, they’re all suddenly available, but the little red hen eats it all herself.
