Book Review - "Patches and Leif"

"Patches and Leif" written by Charles R. Abbott and illustrated by Cindy Strosser, is a great story about friendship!  Patches takes his job very seriously as a scarecrow watching over the corn.  One windy day he hears someone having a good time.  Patches sees a leaf twirling through the air.  The leaf introduces himself as Leif and begins to tell Patches about his adventure one day outside of a window at an elementary school.  Patches asks his new friend to return to him and tell him about other adventures.

This is a well-written story that will teach children the importance of responsibility and dedication to one's job and also friendship. The illustrations are beautiful and filled with so much detail!  They go along perfectly with the story!
