The Scarecrows Hat by Ken BrownA resourceful chicken seeks the help of her farm animal friends to solve a problem, while giving something of herself along the way.
Chicken really admires Scarecrows hat. Scarecrow would gladly trade his hat for a walking stick to rest his tired arms. Chicken doesnt have a walking stick to trade--but she knows someone who does. This begins her quest to find items to trade among her farm friends, all to obtain a walking stick to swap for Scarecrows hat. But why does Chicken want an old straw hat?
With bright watercolors and a gentle tone to keep readers captivated, this clever story written and illustrated by Ken Brown poses a problem and offers a creative solution that young children will delight in discovering.
Under the hat, add two blue circles for the eyes. In the middle add an orange triangle nose. On the sides, add the yellow rectangles for hair. Add the pink circle cheeks. Using a marker, add a smile and the pupils on the eyes. Have the child write their name on the back of the scarecrow.

ENJOY THESE BOOKS
One thing that her leaving meant was that I would be taking over the WeeRead infant to 3 year olds , Baby and Me , Toddler Time , and Preschool storytimes on top of the K-2nd that Mary and I work together on, and two 3rd-5th grade book clubs that I run solo. The theme was scarecrows. I grabbed the three books that our library has on scarecrows and was rather disappointed in them. Heck to the no. So the other day I threw this together and did my first storytime with it the very next day. It had a mouth that you could make smile or frown depending on what was happening in the story. Obviously if I have a very vivid memory of that book several decades later, then it would be fun to do my own version.
Autumn is the perfect time to read about scarecrows with your preschoolers. This collection of scarecrow books for kids is a great place to start! I buy mine at the store. But, I love doing scarecrow crafts with kids. And, reading scarecrow picture books is a lot of fun in the fall.
