Scarecrows come to life in this charming story with adorable graphics. It begins the morning after a frightening storm the previous evening when the three scarecrows, Biscuit, Puddin' and Pancake had to endure the wind, hail, and torrential rain. They were just happy to have made it through the night and hoping to dry in the warm morning sun when the old crow appeared.

The crow had been in the cornfield before, but this time they soaking wet and not in the best of moods when they confronted him about taking the food. Today the old crow was in for more than just a yummy breakfast.
He called them a bunch of dummies, and while they had to admit that technically they were dummies, they were smart dummies. There was more to them than just stuffing.

iFrom fingers and toes to...who knows?

The book poses the question; how will your child answer? What inventive ways can your little one think of to count the hairs? Is there a real need to know how many hairs are on one's head? How can anyone know how many hairs are on your head; aren't there too many to count? One question leads to another. As you read along, stop to reflect on the active involvement you and your child can engage in as you discuss possible answers.

Reading the book together will be a fun learning and reinforcing experience you can repeat over and over again.

Under the Apple Tree: Watch Out Where You Step!,
As the sneaky snake approached the apple tree, suddenly apples began to fall to the ground. Was dropping apples the tree trying to scare away the snake? If so, it didn't work. The snake looked up at the tree, and the tree looked down at the snake and their in-depth conversation began. Yep, the snake and the apple tree both talk in this delightfully illustrated book.

There could not be any two that are more opposite than the apple tree and the snake, but wait...one of the apples began to chime into the conversation; and a blue bird flew in to chirp some thoughts as well.
Hmmm...what could be so interesting that had the snake explaining how he worked like a chameleon? He was so proud of the fact he could change into just about anything, even your best friend! How could he do it? And why?

Can all snakes change like that? Or, is he a special snake? Or is he a chameleon and not a snake at all? Or, is he not a chameleon, and not a snake? If not, then who is he?
