What to Read – Scarecrow Books and Activities

It’s fall, y’all… a good time to be jumping into leaf piles and making scarecrows. It’s What to Read Wednesday, and I want to share some of my favorite scarecrow books and activities.

It's fall, y'all... a good time to be jumping into leaf piles and making scarecrows. It's What to Read Wednesday, and I want to share some of my favorite scarecrow books and activities.

 

 

When I was a kid, every fall my mom always would send us out armed with rakes and trash bags to gather up the leaves that had fallen. Somehow we thought it was fun and not chores. (I’m not sure how she did that! I need to learn that trick!) After piling the trash bags into a weird little pile, we would dress the bags in some old clothes from my dad’s rag bag, and set the scarecrow on our front porch swing. We had a small Lhasa Poo dog who thought she was a German Shepherd, and she sat there and barked at the new visitor ALL DAY LONG!

It’s a memory of my early childhood that brings back fond memories of beautiful fall days, when the weather started changing and the leaves were falling to the ground. Reminds me of the giant leaf pile that we would rake up, just to ruin it by jumping into it. So many precious memories!

We’ve already done a What to Read for Fall, but this week’s theme is Scarecrows! So if scarecrows bring back memories for you, join me in reading a good book about scarecrows! Here are some of my faves.
