Little Red Henry

Little Red Henry, the youngest, is cared for by everyone in the family. They all hover around to feed him, to brush his teeth and to dress him. When he starts to declare his independence and do things for himself, his family is shocked. He suggests they learn to do other things. They each find things to do and Henry, at last, can do things on his own. But when he goes to bed and no one is there to tuck him in, he’s not so sure this independence is so good. A laugh-out-loud funny and heart-warming story!
