Do you know the story of the Little Red Hen, a very independent character? She performs a series of tasks with no help from her friends. These tasks include finding wheat grains to plant, planting the wheat, harvesting the wheat, threshing the wheat, going to the mill and baking the bread. With an invitation to eat the bread, the friends jump right in with a big yes, but the little red hen remembers all their no's.
