Waltz of the Scarecrows

Waltz of the Scarecrows




While visiting her grandparents' farm one summer, Sarah helps her grandma and grandpa make scarecrows. Together they stuff old clothes with straw and sew button eyes onto pillow faces. But these are no ordinary scarecrows. Dressed in top hats and tails, ball gowns and gloves, these scarecrows look as if they are ready for a night on the town. And, indeed, they are! Coupled with sweeping watercolor illustrations that almost glow with moonlight, this magical tale will set readers' imaginations dancing. Includes a reader's guide with activities and discussion topics for home and classroom.

My gc loved listening to this book. It is about a little girl visiting grandparents and helping them make scarecrows--in the fanciest of finery. Why there are such elegant scarecrows is the plot. It was a great book
