Henrietta Hen lays her very first egg and, unfortunately, she is not sure what to make of it. When Red Fox offers to trade her a fat, juicy worm for her seemingly worthless egg, she agrees. When the other animals clue her in on the bad deal, Henrietta, with the help of her farm friends, tries to offer Red Fox another trade to get her egg back. Although an original tale, this has the feel of a classic folktale. With a nice repetition and simple plotline that will help encourage dialogic reading skills, this is a great choice for preschoolers and kindergarteners.
