Descripción

From a Newbery Medal-winning author, a look at life from a scarecrow’s point of view, accompanied by “magnificent” illustrations (School Library Journal).
 
Scarecrows. They perch high above gardens and fields, with borrowed coats and button eyes and pie-pan hands that glint in the sun. What else is there to know about them? Perhaps more than we realize. Newbery Medalist Cynthia Rylant’s rich and poignant story, powerfully illustrated by Lauren Stringer, will resonate deeply in the hearts of readers, who just might find themselves seeing the world in a whole new way.
 
“Rylant lyrically imagines the scarecrow as a grateful ‘witness to life,’ while the acrylic paintings evoke a warm, even nostalgic sense of plenty.”—Publishers Weekly 
 
"Rylant uses casual, conversational language with simple elegance and pleasing rhythms.”—School Library Journal
 
“Rylant is in fine form.”—Kirkus Reviews

    A Scarecrows life isn't just what we think it is. Cynthia Rylant tells the story from the scarecrows point of view. Very detailed and colorful pictures. It also shows us how a scarecrow can see the different things in nature.

    This is the story about the life of a scarecrow and the friends he makes. This is a good story to read in the fall season.

    This book is about a scarecrow whose body and existence are all borrowed by "somebody else". His eyes, nose, face, legs, and hands are all somebodies. A scarecrow is like a garage sale. He attracts all kinds of animals, mice, vultures, crows, etc. The scare crow is literally imitating a man, to attract birdies. The pictures in this book are pretty good and descriptive. Both the scarecrow and people have lives of their own working , defining goals ,and most importantly living.

    This author weaves pure magic. Each and every book, whether illustrated, or YA, appears to be written from the heart. Composed of many things, a carrot, a hat, a shirt, a hat, each piece woven together to make a whole.As we experience the seasons through his eyes, there is a calmness and serenity. This guy has his act together. He accepts his bird and animal friends, he enjoys the seasons and he knows just who he is.Ah, if we could all be like him...content.

    This is one of the most recent examples of Rylant's mastery of the written word. The scarecrow endlessly personified clarifies any and all confusion about a fictional character done right. I really came to understand this scarecrow for what he aspires to be in these pages. I really truly enjoyed this book.

    I am a big Cynthia Rylant fan, and this sweet book is told from the scarecrow's point of view. One of my favorites of hers, for I think I fell in love with the cheerful, contented scarecrow, who loves the world around him and reveals in its wonder.

    A cute text that shares the perspective of a scarecrow. This book begins with the creation of the scarecrow and what he encounters during each season.The transition from season to season is observed through inferences. I personally loved how the author and illustrator made this transition without the reader clearly noticing it.This is a great book for teaching inferences. I would also like to use this book with students when studying the changing of the seasons.

    book written from the perspective of the scarecrow. Story is told in second person. Uniquely written with colorful illustrations. Very descriptive. Story puts life concepts to an inanimated object.
