From my childhood memories the story of the little red hen remains a favorite. She asks for help to plant her wheat, harvest her wheat, etc. and “Not I” said the dog. “Not I,” said the cat. ”Not I,” said the mouse. So she did everything herself. When she baked the wheat into bread and asked “Who will help me eat my wheat?” everyone was willing to help. Happily she and her chicks ate the bread themselves and so the story had a good moral lesson concerning work ethic.
