Little Red Hen

Wholl help me plant the seed? asks the plucky red hen as she begins the process that goes into making a loaf of her delicious bread. Not I, say the sheep, the cow, the horse, and the pig. But, a hens gotta do what a hens gotta do, and so our crimson heroine perseveres until her work is done. The tricks of the conniving fox and the hens common sense create an adventure with a sound moral lesson in this classic, feel good, foot-stompin country musical. (Recommended for ages 3 and up). Best for ages 3 and older.
3/10 - 4/10
