The Little Red Hen

   

Anmfa014.wmf (9284 bytes)The little Red Hen was in the farmyard with her chickens, when she found a grain of wheat.

 

"Who will plant this wheat?" she said.

 

"Not I," said the Goose.

 

"Not I," said the Duck.

 

"I will, then," said the little Red Hen, and she planted the grain of wheat.

 

When the wheat was ripe she said, "Who will take this wheat to the mill?"

 

"Not I," said the Goose.

 

"Not I," said the Duck.

 

"I will, then," said the little Red Hen, and she took the wheat to the mill.

 

When she brought the flour home she said, "Who will make some bread with this flour?"

 

"Not I," said the Goose.

 

"Not I," said the Duck.

 

"I will, then," said the little Red Hen.

 

When the bread was baked, she said, "Who will eat this bread?"

 

"I will," said the Goose

 

"I will," said the Duck

 

"No, you won't," said the little Red Hen. "I shall eat it myself.  Cluck! cluck!"  And she called her chickens to help her.
