This sprightly version of the timeless folktale, most likely of Russian origin, teaches children invaluable lessons regarding hard work, cooperation, and mutual respect in its vivid and entertaining depiction of the slothful cat, goose, and dog, who stand idly by as the diligent hen plants, harvests, and mills wheat to bake a delicious loaf of bread.
Kathleen McInerney's vivacious and energetic performance and soothing maternal tone will captivate young listeners, as will the buoyant musical score and amusing, perfectly placed sound effects.

I purchased this thinking that as my child listened to the story, it would show the different pages of the book. Instead, you just see the first picture and it stays there as the entire story is read. Pretty disappointed I wasted my money....I would rather buy the actual book and read it to my child myself so that they can enjoy listening to it while looking at all the different pictures.
