Make your own scarecrow Halloween decoration with Christy Mihaly, author of the picture book Hey, Hey, Hay! A Tale of Bales and the Machines That Make Them. Beautifully illustrated by Joe Cepeda, Hey, Hey, Hay! is a rhyming book that features a farm girl and her mother making hay. Observing the poetry and magic of the haymaking process – “storing summer in a bale” – inspired the author to bring this story to kids. After a read-aloud, Mihaly will offer a brief question and answer session about haymaking, writing, reading, and other topics that kids are interested in. Finally, kids will stuff a small scarecrow. Sponsored by the City of Fairfax Commission on the Arts.
