The Little Scarecrow Boy

The Little Scarecrow Boy

by Margaret Wise Brown Illustrated by David Diaz
Once upon a time in a cornfield there lived a scarecrow and his scarecrow wife and their little scarecrow boy.

Tender and funny, it celebrates the time-honored tradition of passing knowledge from one generation to the next, and the exuberance that comes with reaching one's true potential.
