    2. "The Little Red Hen" is such a great little story. I read this book to our son and daughter the other night, and they just soaked it up. It's not just a good story for little kids, though. It's a great story for adults as well. The lesson we learn from it is invaluable; it's biblical what we learn from the story. We must work for what we eat. The Bible talks briefly about working for what we eat. 1 Thessalonians 3:10 says, "For even when we were with you, we would give you this command: If anyon [...]

    5. I love this book. I think that this book is great for children. It teaches them that hard work pays off. It also teaches them that it's good to be helpful. I like how the hen didn't give the other animals any food when she was finished because they didn't help. So now the animals help every time. I would use this book to show the children to not give up on something because it seems hard or like a lot of work. I would have the children do a cooking project (like making cookies), and I would show [...]

    6. I prefer books my LO can apply to things he already knows. He enjoyed this one and it sparked some discussion. In the middle he had already figured out the chicken was doing all the work, but he was especially interested in hearing more about the lazy cat with the guitar, and pointed out ducks are supposed to eat Cheerios, not bread. He also said the paintings were pretty cool. Mission accomplished.

    7. This is one of my favorite stories growing up. I had the story in one big book of collection of tales. I loved hearing the story and I also loved reading by myself as I got older. If I teach kindergarten, I will try to incorporate this story into a lesson.

    8. Such a classic story about doing chores to get rewards. The repetition will help children grasp words and concepts easily. A very easy book to read to your child. It is straightforward with just enough personality to make it interesting.

    9. I thought that this was a good book for teaching a lesson about teamwork and effort. I thought that it was really well told, I liked the pictures. I would definitely recommend this book to students.

    10. One of my favorite memories of childhood was my dad reading me this book. For that alone it gets 5 stars. If I could, I would give it a million. Very simple story, yet it teaches a valuable lesson.

    11. I'm not sure this was the same version I read when I was about 7 years old, but it looks like it might be. Teaches the lesson that the Bible gives of "If anyone will not work, neither shall he eat."

    12. My favorite childhood book. It teaches children how they should share responsibilities and help each other or they will never be rewarded.
