A’ Chearc Bheag Ruadh


Once upon a time, there was a little red hen in a barnyard. She spent most of her time looking for worms, but one day she found a grain of wheat. She wanted to plant it, grow wheat, and make bread, but would any of the other animals help her? Dr. Jamie MacDonald, the Gaelic translator of Goldilocks and the Three Bears and Peter Rabbit, brings us the Gaelic version of The Little Red Hen, another tale perfect for Scottish Gaelic language learners of all ages. Accompanied by charming vintage American illustrations.
