The Scarecrow

The Scarecrow

Beth Ferry 

Bestselling author Beth Ferry and the widely acclaimed Fan Brothers present a gorgeous and poignant picture book about two unexpected friends and the special connection they share.  This tender and affectionate story reminds us of the comforting power of friendship and the joy of helping others - a tale that will inspire and delight children for generations to come.   

All the animals know not to mess with old Scarecrow.  But when a small, scared crow falls from midair, Scarecrow does the strangest thing…. 

He saves the tiny baby crow.  Soon a loving bond grows between the two unlikely friends.  But is it strong enough to weather the changing of the seasons?
