The name says it all it is supposed to scare crows.
“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.”
Have you ever talked to a scarecrow?
[Have a scarecrow standing nearby & engage in a short conversation]
Do you ever wonder what the scarecrow thinks about all day long and all
night long standing in the field? How lonely it must be, or is it?
Maybe there are animals nearby who keep the scarecrow company through the
lonely days and lonely nights. Look at the beauty of the farm and
the field through a scarecrow’s eyes in Scarecrow by Cynthia Rylant. (Michal
