But then, there are a lot of much less hair-raising questions that you can discuss with kids. They sometimes spring forth from children’s fiction. Here goes—some philosophy for kids.
You remember the Little Red Hen. She wanted to make some bread and she had a bunch of slacker friends, a dog, a cat, a pig.
“I will,” said the dog. “I will,” said the cat. "I will," said the pig.
In a shocking turnaround, the Little Red Hen said. “I picked the wheat, I ground the wheat, I made the dough, etc. Now I will eat the bread.” And she did.
Question: Did the Little Red Hen do the right thing? Open for comments from kids and kids-at-heart, three and up.
