The scarecrow does not care what he is. He is made out of a broom, cloth, sticks, rocks, grass, and all sorts of things. All he is made for is to scare birds off into the distance. To learn more about the scarecrow read this book.

I think this book is a good book because he said that he does not care what he is. This a lesson kids need to learn. I also liked the words they use. They are very descriptive. The pictures are colorful and big. They make the scarecrow very real.

I recommend this book to kids who like poems or scarecows. But, anybody would enjoy it. So, please look for it and read it.
