The little red Hen! Un conte per treballar valors i llengua anglesa

 

Once upon a time, a cat and a dog and a mouse and a little red hen all lived together in a little house.
The cat liked to sleep all day on the soft couch. The dog liked to nap all day on the sunny back porch. And the mouse liked to snooze all day in the warm chair by the fireside.
So, the little red hen had to do all the housework:
She cooked the meals and washed the dishes and made the beds.
She swept the floor and washed the windows and mended the clothes. She raked the leaves and mowed the grass and hoed the garden.
One day, when she was hoeing the garden she found some grains of wheat.
- Who will plant this wheat? - cried the little red hen.
- Not I - said the cat.
- Not I - said the dog.
- Not I - said the mouse.
- Then I will - said the hen. And she did.
Each morning, the little red hen watered the wheat and pulled the weeds.
Soon the wheat pushed through the ground and began to grow up. When the wheat was ripe, the little red hen asked,
- Who will cut this wheat?
- Not I - said the cat.
- Not I - said the dog.
- Not I - said the mouse.
- Then I will - said the hen. And she did.
When the wheat was all cut, the little red hen asked,
- Now, who will take this wheat to the mill to be ground into flour?
- Not I - said the cat.
- Not I - said the dog.
- Not I - said the mouse.
- Then I will - said the hen. And she did.
The little hen returned from the mill carrying a small bag of fine white flour.
- Who will make a cake from this fine white flour? - asked the litlle red hen.
- Not I - said the cat.
- Not I - said the dog.
- Not I - said the mouse.
- Then I will - said the hen. And she did.
She gathered sticks and made a fire in the stove. Then she took milk and sugar and eggs and butter and mixed them in a big bowl with the fine white flour.
When the oven was hot she poured the cake batter into a pan and put it in the over.
Soon, a delicious smell filled the little house. The cat got off the soft sofa and came into the kitchen. The dog got up from the sunny back porch and came into the kitchen. The mouse jumped down from his warm chair and came into the kitchen.
The little red hen was just taking a beautiful cake out of the oven.
- Who will eat this cake? - asked the little red hen.
- I will! - cried the cat.
- I will! - cried the dog.
- I will! - cried the mouse.
But the little red hen said,
- All by myself! I planted the wheat, I watered the wheat, I cut the wheat, I took the wheat to the mill to be ground into flour. All by myself! I gathered the sticks, I built the fire, I mixed the cake and I cooked it! All by myself and I am going to eat it!!!! And so she did, to the very last crumb!
After that, whenever there was work to be done, the little red hen had three helpers.
