Frankie Corzo's charismatic narration animates this contemporary retelling of "The Little Red Hen." It doesn't bother Ruby when her three brothers laugh at her idea of building something with the old boards she has found. With her spunky can-do spirit and a little help from her grandmother and mom, Ruby constructs a backyard fort on her own. But when she tells her brothers they can't play in the fort because they didn't help make it, the boys find creative ways to make amends. Corzo conveys the story's energy with a youthful voice, authentic accents, and engaging characterizations. Her playful tone and an upbeat musical score enhance the accompanying picture book's dynamic illustrations, creating a lively read-along.
