What a beautiful example of - I think - what our lives should be. The scarecrow is completely happy in his life and what occurs everyday around him. And as he goes through his day, what I love the most is that he is looking up!






The scarecrow is beloved by the animals that come near him. And if you look carefully, he always has a smile on his face. 

Read this beautiful book to just learn how to smile and enjoy the everyday things in life!
