Who will help the Little Red Hen?

Listen to an audio clip

Hello! My name is Jean, and I'm going to tell you about the pictures in Gerald Rose's story called 'The Little Red Hen'. The Little Red Hen has a great idea and hopes the other farm animals will give her a hand in carrying it out. I wonder who will help her? Would you like to find out?
Before we begin, make sure that your book is resting on a hard flat surface so that you can feel the words and the special feely pictures easily.
The picture on the outside of the book stretches across both the front and back cover. The Little Red Hen is standing in a field with her eight fluffy yellow chicks. They're in a big, open, field with a few trees dotted here and there in the distance. It's a warm, sunny day without a cloud in the sky. The chicks are all clustered around mother hen, chirping away, and one of them has hopped up onto her back. The Little Red Hen, with her beautiful sweep of feathers and bright red crest, has turned her head round to look at the cheeky chick. "What do you think you're up to!" she must be saying. Towering over the other chicks are a few stalks of golden wheat waiting to be gathered in.
