Author: Cynthia Rylant
Favorite Characters: scarecrow, birds
This story tells about a scarecrows life from a scarecrow's point of view. It begins with the scarecrow being made in the spring and the garden is being planted. The birds love to hang around on his arms and talk all day. He goes through summer, fall, and all he knows is that plants are growing up all around him.
This book shows how a scarecrow's life is peaceful and relaxing. It also shows the seasons and what happens during those seasons. It's not ever day you get to read about a scarecrow and it's life, so I recommend you read this book.
"Scarecrow," while beautiful, is not much of a story. Just watching the seasons change. There's a place for watching the seasons change, but it seems a shame to use illustrations as high-quality as these to illustrate... not much action. It's a peaceful story, but it seems like a missed opportunity.
