Cute story.

In this lighthearted mash-up of two familiar children's stories, Old MacDonald isn't a farmer -- he's just a guy who's tired of mowing his lawn. When a goat fails to keep the grass cropped, MacDonald buys a chicken…but not just any chicken. Nope, this is the Little Red Hen, "the smartest hen in history," and she's got big plans for turning Old MacDonald's yard into a sustainable suburban farm. But will the neighbors put up with a muddy, noisy, stinky farm next door? Check out this visually exaggerated but slyly funny read-aloud to find out.
