Scaredycrow

Scaredycrow

by Christopher Hernandez Illustrated by Kyle Poling

Meet one scarecrow who's scared of everything in this uplifting picture book about fear and friendship that also includes a punch-out Scaredycrow paper doll!

Scaredycrow is a scarecrow with a big problem: He's scared of everything! He's scared of the crows that fly by in the day. He's scared of the bats that swoop down in the night. He's scared of the barnyard animals, too. And the feeling is mutual! The crows, the bats, and other barnyard friends are all terribly afraid of the lonely, little scarecrow out in the field.

But one day, when a little mouse named Tiny decides to bring everyone together, everyone learns that there is nothing scary about making new friends.
