One day, the little red hen wanted to make bread. She went to see the animals. She said, “I am going to make bread.” “Who will help me cut the wheat?”, she asked. The cow said, “Not I, I am going to jump over the moon.” The little dog laughed. The cat slept.
The little red hen left. She was not happy. She walked down the road. The cow jumped over the moon. The little red hen went to cut the wheat.
She cut the wheat and now had to clean it. She went back to see the animals. She hoped they would help. Do you think they will help?
She asked, “Who will help me clean the wheat?” Do you think the cat will help?
“The cat woke up and said, “Not I.” He played his fiddle. The little dog laughed. The cow looked up at the moon.
The little red hen left. She was not happy. She went to clean the wheat. The dish and the spoon ran by very fast.
She cleaned the wheat. She had a bag full of wheat seeds. Now, she had to make flour. She needs to grind the wheat seeds to make flour.

She went back to see the animals. She hoped they would help. Do you think they will help?
While she was gone, the dish and the spoon came. She asked, “Who will help me grind the wheat?” “Not I,” said the little dog. Then, he laughed and laughed. The cat played his fiddle. The cow watched the dish and the spoon dance.
The little red hen left. She was not happy. She went to grind the wheat.
She used the stone to grind the wheat. She now had flour to make the bread. What will she do now? Do you think the animals will help? Will she even go ask for help?
She goes to ask the animals. “Who will help me make the bread?” “Not I,” said the dish. “Not I,” said the spoon. Then they ran away. The cat played his fiddle. The little dog laughed. The cow laughed, too.
The little red hen was not happy. She went back home to make the bread. A farmer on a tractor drove by. He is singing. Who can that be ? Do you know?
The little red hen made the bread. The animals smelled the bread in the oven. They came to her house. The bread smelled so good. The little red hen even has butter and jelly. She asked, “Who will help me eat the bread?” The animals said, “We will!”

The little red hen said, “No, I am sorry. You did not help me make this bread. No bread for you.” Maybe next time the animals will help. What do you think?
The animals leave and come to a road sign. One road goes to Bremen Town. The other road goes to Old MacDonald’s farm.
The cow says, “I’m tired. I’m going home.” She leaves and goes to Old MacDonald’s farm.
