About the Book

In this rollicking version of a favorite folktale, a harried, hardworking hen finds the true meaning of Passover.

Oy gevalt! The Little Red Hen likes baking matzah, but she’s not so crazy about doing everything herself. Would it be too much to ask her friends Dog, Horse, and Sheep to help plant and harvest some wheat for the delicious Passover treat? Couldn’t they at least help schlep the wheat to the mill? A recipe for matzah, a glossary of Yiddish words, and a note on Passover traditions is included.
