5. Ida and the Old Broody Hen

05. Ida and the Old Broody Hen

Best-selling children's author Mary Calhoun (Hot-Air Henry, Cross-Country Cat, and Henry the Christmas Cat) loves to tell young children what she calls her "Instant Grandma" stories; like Aesop's Fables each has a good lesson or a moral. In this program children will get a kick out of Mary's tale of Ida, an ingenious girl who uses her wits in a number of adventurous situations and makes her fame taking an old broody hen to Missus Skirby. 96/08DE PI 12 min.
