Little Red Hen

This is a funny short story for kids. Once upon a time, there was a little red hen who lived on a farm. She was friends with a lazy dog, a sleepy cat and a noisy yellow duck. One day, the little red hen found some seeds on the ground and she had an idea. “I should plant the seeds,” she thought. So, the little red hen asked her friends, “Who will help me plant the seeds?” “Not I!” barked the lazy dog. “Not I!” purred the sleepy cat. “Not I!” quacked the noisy duck. “Then I will!” said the little red hen. So off she went to plant the seeds all by herself.

When the seeds were grown, the little red hen asked her friends, “Who will help me cut the wheat?” “Not I!” barked the lazy dog. “Not I!” purred the sleepy cat. “Not I!” quacked the noisy duck. “Then I will!” said the little red hen. So off she went to cut the wheat all by herself.

When all the wheat was cut, the little red hen asked her friends, “Who will help me take the wheat to the mill to be ground into flour?” “Not I!” barked the lazy dog. “Not I!” purred the sleepy cat. “Not I!” quacked the noisy duck. “Then I will!” said the little red hen. So the little red hen brought the wheat to the mill all by herself, ground the wheat into flour and carried the heavy sack of flour back to the farm.

The tired little red hen then asked her friends, “Who will help me bake the bread?” “Not I!” barked the lazy dog. “Not I!” purred the sleepy cat. “Not I!” quacked the noisy duck. “Then I will!” said the little red hen. So, she baked the bread all by herself.

Finally, was the bread was finished, hot and smelling wonderfully, the tired little red hen asked her friends, “Who will help me eat the bread?” “I will!” barked the lazy dog. “I will!” purred the sleepy cat. “I will!” quacked the noisy duck. “Then I will!” said the little red hen. “You didn’t want to help me with any of the work, so now you won’t eat the bread!” said the little red hen. So, the little red hen ate the bread all by herself and her chicks had some, too.
