A fun-filled retelling of The Little Red Hen with important messages about caring for our environment and working together!
The beautiful apple tree is home to the Little Green Hen, who tends it lovingly every day - pruning, sowing new seeds and keeping the pests at bay. But not everyone wants to help. Peacock, Cat and Fox have far more important things to do - until the day a storm floods the countryside and the apple tree is the only shelter . . .
