      Brilliant picture book by Brenda Maier, with great artwork. Ruby is a little girl who decides to build a fort in her backyard, though her brothers won't help her. They change their tune after they see just how awesome a fort it is.

      I loved this multicultural update of The Little Red Hen. My favorite thing was that the brothers learned a lesson and happily corrected their behavior and were happily forgiven.

      There is a lot to like about this twist of the Little Red Hen. Brenda took a much-loved folk tale and gave it a very modern and relevant feel. I love this as a read-aloud for my library and I love that it has an emphasis on creating and building. Beautiful colors and the text flows just like the original story but it feels very new and fresh.

      I like this take on the Little Red Hen better than the original tale. On the surface, this is a tale of a girl (Ruby) whose three brothers won't help her build a fort. However, it goes further--the bright, layered pictures tell a tale of an empowered girl of color who builds her own fort by herself ( women in her life help too). There is also a chance for the boys to make the situation right at the end. This is a much needed modern take on a classic fable.

      Based on The Little Red Hen, this story tells of a young girl who wanted to build a fort. She asked her brothers for help and, you know the drill - none were willing to do anything along the way. However, after it was done, they did step in and handle the final touches. Use to talk about doing our part and supporting each other. Plus, we can do anything if we're willing to do the research and work.

      Kids will love this fresh retelling of the classic folktale, The Little Red Hen. Clever Ruby decides to build a fort, but her brothers refuse to help. When the fort is all finished, of course the brothers want to play too. Eventually, Ruby figures out a way to have her fort and her brothers to play with. The vibrant illustrations add to this delightful story.

    8. Pamela Powell on said:

      This book is a wonderful play off the "Little Red Hen"! Ruby finds wood and wants to build something but her brothers won't help her so she does it herself (with appropriate help from Mom, Dad, and even Grandma). I loved that Dad had the desk job and Mom had the workshop. A great story! I will be adding this to my school library.

      Such a fun book - a happy, fresh take on the Little Red Hen story. My girls enjoyed the details in the illustrations as well as the fort-building ideas in the back of the book, and we were all happy when the brothers joined in to help out at the end, giving them all a chance to enjoy the fort together.

      Cute story like Little Red Hen but instead with a girl named Ruby and three brothers who won’t help her build a fort. A hispanic family is featured. Nice illustrations. Good read-aloud book. I would buy for my school. Highly recommended for Grades K-3.

      Love this story! Girl power, a family that is representative of many of my students' families, and a message about being helpful. Such a cute book!
