To Scare a Crow

The oldest surviving book in Japan, the Kojiki (compiled in the year 712), depicts a scarecrow, known as Kuebiko, appearing as a deity who cannot walk, yet knows everything about the world.

Miss Maxine’s Rose Nursery/Kindergarten class recently constructed our own all- knowing divine beings with the help of moms Mary Ann Sims and Maureen Feeney. The children stuffed clothing, tied corn husks and created facial features on pumpkin heads - alas, welcome Sanderling Scarecrows!!

Please feel free to ask our autumn visitors a thought-provoking question or two. We have yet to determine if they, like Kuebiko, know everything, or anything, about the world.
