What to Read Wednesday: Kids’ Books About Scarecrows


This blog uses affiliate links. Please read my disclosure policy.

During fall harvest season, we are seeing scarecrows everywhere–some that are really ’employed’ in our neighboring farmers’ fields, and some that are sitting on porches just for fun. My kids built a scarecrow one year using jeans and a flannel shirt we picked up at a thrift shop, with a wig form as it’s head. We covered the head with a piece of burlap with a face painted on it, added a hat, and he was all set to guard our front porch. The thing was, every time I walked out the door, it scared me to death! I though someone was hanging out at our house for that split second between my heart stopping and the realization that it was harmless Mr. Scarecrow.

Our scarecrow didn’t survive after a few years out in the weather, so we are enjoying scarecrow books this year instead of making another frightening friend.

We are sharing our favorite scarecrow books, and we’d love to hear if you would add anything to our list. Let us know in the comments below.

Happy reading!

    We made a scarecrow out of old clothes and paper bags last year and it turned out so cute – it just sat inside our entryway, but it was lots of fun. I’m glad you reminded me about it!
