The Little Red Hen

The Little Red Hen is an old folk tale, possibly of Russian origin. The story is often applied in teaching children the virtues of working.

I had intended to do Goldilocks and the three bears this weekend. But due to time constraints I needed to swap it out for a shorter story. Luckily Gina had recently sent me this recording and I just about managed to get it done.

My girls and I adore the character voices. My 4 year old set me straight that my first attempt at a hen was “too granny” and that clearly didn’t match the voice so the one you will see in this video is attempt number 2. She also rejected my idea of making the hen place the seeds using her beak. The reason was that “she would mess up her make-up.”  I didn’t realize she was wearing any but I conceded to better judgement.
