Product Description

Although made of straw and borrowed clothes, a scarecrow appreciates his peaceful, gentle life and the privilege of watching nature at work. Scarecrows. We see them perched high above gardens and fields, with borrowed coats, button eyes, and pie-pan hands that glint in the sun. We think we know the most important things about them. But perhaps there's more to a scarecrow's life than meets the eye... Big, bold acrylic illustrations by Lauren Stringer. Ages 6-9.
