We have been read alot since the kids have been sick, and our main theme has been "scarecrows".
All the books shown above are just lovely and are on our favorite list, but the most favored is
Waltz of the Scarecrows.
It is about a little girl staying with her grandparents on their farm during the summer. She is surprised when they start making scarecrows for the corn field out to a ball-gown and hat, coat and tails.
We learn in the story how this tradition began and why it is still being carried out on all the farms in the area.
My 3 and 4 year olds loved this story, but it also held the attention of my 8 and 9 year old---and I have to say, it is also one of my favorites.
Check out what others were reading this week at Mouse Grows, Mouse Learns.
