Scarecrow Finds a Friend written by Blume J. Rifken and illustrated by Carl W. Wenzel is a perfect story to kick off the holiday season. Scarecrow is enjoying the Thanksgiving season when his good friend Tally the witch comes to him with a problem. Mia's thoughts first: This was a really good book; I liked it. I thought it was neat that Scarecrow and Tally had the same wish, and his plan was really cool. The pictures were pretty cool and how they went along with the words. My favorite picture is the cover with Tally and Scarecrow. Now my review: Wenzel's beautiful watercolor illustrations really make the whole story come to life. The homegrown scenes of fields and harvest set the stage of this terrific story about friendship, and Tally's wildly colored clothing and jewelry make her stand out. Rifken tells a sweet story of friendship and sacrifice all without preaching. I would love to see more of the story of Scarecrow trick-or-treating which is only touched upon here. The books is a great reminder of all we have to be thankful for this season.
