The Little Red Hen

Once upon a time, in a cozy little farm, there lived a kind and hardworking little red hen. The little red hen had a small but lovely garden where she grew wheat.

One bright morning, as the sun was rising, the little red hen decided it was time to harvest the wheat. She knew it would be a lot of work, but she didn’t mind because she was a diligent little hen.

So, she began by carefully cutting the wheat with her beak and gathering it into a big bundle. After that, she asked her animal friends, “Who will help me take this wheat to the mill and grind it into flour?”

The cow, the pig, and the duck were resting in the shade. They looked at each other and said, “Not I, not I, not I,” and lazily continued with their naps.

The little red hen felt a little sad but didn’t give up. She carried the heavy bundle of wheat to the mill all by herself. She worked hard turning the handle to grind the wheat into fine flour.

Once she had the flour, she asked again, “Who will help me bake this flour into bread?” She hoped her friends would want to share in the delicious bread they would have.

But again, the cow, the pig, and the duck were uninterested. They said, “Not I, not I, not I,” and continued with their rest.

The little red hen was not discouraged. She went ahead and baked the flour into a lovely loaf of bread all on her own. The smell of the fresh bread wafted through the air.

When the bread was ready and the little red hen took it out of the oven, her friends suddenly became very interested. They came rushing over, saying, “We will help you eat the bread!”

The little red hen smiled and said, “No, my dear friends, I worked hard to plant, harvest, grind, and bake this bread, all by myself. So, I will enjoy it all by myself.”

And that’s exactly what she did. She savored every bite of her delicious bread, while her friends looked on with regret.

The moral of the story is: “If you don’t help with the work, you don’t get to enjoy the rewards.”
