Description - Otis and the Scarecrow by Loren Long

A deeply resonant book about subtle acts of kindness, Otis and the Scarecrow is the perfect book in which to explore compassion, friendship, and standing up for others.
On the farm where Otis the tractor lives, the farmer has introduced someone new - a scarecrow to shoo away the pesky crows. But when Otis and the animals greet the scarecrow with friendly smiles, the scarecrow's frown never leaves his face. Day after day, alone, he stares out into the cornfield. So everyone leaves him be.
Then one day, when a cold autumn rain sets in, Otis and the animals snuggle close and play Otis's favourite game- the quiet game. Otis knows the puppy and ducks can't sit still for long, and soon the farm friends begin to giggle and squirm, feeling warmed by one another's friendship . . . but on this day, Otis can't seem to take his eyes off the lonely figure in the cornfield.
A deeply resonant book about subtle acts of kindness, Otis and the Scarecrow is the perfect book in which to explore compassion, friendship, and standing up for others.
