Little Red Hen

In this Classic story, it's the first time Little Red Hen has a Yiddish accent.
Realizing it’s almost Passover, the Little Red Hen says, “Oy gevalt!” She needs matzah for her Passover seder, and that means she has to grow wheat.
No one wants to help the Little Red Hen make the Passover matzah, but they all want to help her eat it at the seder.
In an ending with a twist, the Little Red Hen invites all her friends to her seder, even though they haven't helped with anything, because of the commandment in the Passover Hagaddah "Let all who are hungry come and eat."
But when it's time to wash the dishes, it's the Little Red Hen's turn to rest, while her friends help out.

This Jewish kids book contains background on Passover, a recipe for matzah, and a glossary of Yiddish words used in the story.
