The Little Red Hen gives old MacDonald some pointers on composting -- and a legendary farm is born -- in this rhyming, rollicking read-aloud. Once upon a time, Old MacDonald didn't have a farm. He just had a yard -- a yard he didn't want to mow. But under the direction of the wise (and ecologically sensitive) Little Red Hen, Mac learns to look at the environment in a very different way, and whole new worlds start to bloom with the help of some mud, garbage, horse poop, and worms! Judy Sierra's spirited verse, paired with Matthew Myers's exuberant illustrations, yields a fresh take on a children's classic, complete with raised-bed gardens and an organic farmers' market--making this a perfect story for armchair gardeners and devoted locavores of all sizes.
