Burton the Scarecrow children’s book series

Burton Book Series

Lifelong educator and storyteller V.A. Boeholt has created a world of discovery for young readers that enrich their minds with endearing lessons about friendship, problem-solving and character building. Boeholt’s engaging stories introduce children not only to concepts like counting, sequencing and vocabulary building, but also to ideals like humility, gratitude, service and problem-solving. Featuring the delightful illustrations of acclaimed artist Nathaniel P. Jensen, each story provides a unique opportunity for parents and teachers to apply life-shaping principles at home or in the classroom, setting the stage for character development in an enjoyable, memorable way.

We received the Burton the Scarecrow-Friendship Tales From the Farm Series to review and really enjoyed the books. These books are great for children of all ages but especially good for children ages 4-7. Burton the Scarecrow teaches about kindness and friendship and I can’t imagine a better way to teach young children about these important traits in being a friend to themselves and others. The books really do reinforce the importance of empathy and being a friend and working together to accomplish a goal. I love that the messages in the book are also reinforced by a Resource Guide and Glossary at the end of each book. These books would be great to use in learning or for anytime at all. Children will love the adventures of Burton the Scarecrow!
