In this classroom favorite, a resourceful chicken enlists her farm friends to get a coveted hat from Scarecrow. A delightful circular tale and fall read-aloud!
“Great for storytelling, with big beautiful pictures for a topper.” ?Kirkus Reviews
Chicken really admires Scarecrow’s hat. Scarecrow would gladly trade his hat for a walking stick to rest his tired arms. Chicken doesn’t have a walking stick to trade—but she knows someone who does.
Author-illustrator Ken Brown pairs vivid, realistic watercolors with an inventive plot, engaging sequencing and repetition and to tell a charming circular story packed with relatable themes of friendship, bartering, and problem solving. An ideal storytime choice for autumn and harvest themes.
