A wonderful read-aloud celebration of Fall...exquisitely written and drawn. Unforgettable!
I work in a Children's Department at Barnes & Noble, and when this book appeared on my shelving cart, I literally gasped at how beautiful it is - and then, when I saw who the writer and illustrator were, I actually hugged the book! It is a wonderful, unexpected collaboration between one of my favorite read-aloud authors Jane Yolen, whose earlier books I've read at Storytime with great response from the kids, and Bagram Ibatoulline, who illustrated another one of my favorite picture books, Kate diCamillo's moving Christmas story "Great Joy." Yolen's story truly makes the scarecrow come alive, and Ibatoulline's illustrations are breathtaking. "The Scarecrow's Dance" will definitely be on my Storytime list for October, and I also am buying a copy to decorate my bookshelf at home.
