The Not-So-Scary Scarecrow
by Mamie Tauk

Jack, the Scarecrow, believes he has to be scary because he's a scarecrow. Until one day he realizes that just because he is a scarecrow doesn't mean he has to act like one. Read about Jack as he makes a few unlikely friendships and realizes that being kind is exactly how he likes to be.

Mamie Tauk is a storyteller who finds so much joy in bringing joy to others—especially children. A preschool teachers’ assistant for seven years, and a mother to two beautiful boys, Mamie’s two passions have been interwoven for quite some time. Her days engulf her in children’s stories and the children around her continuously inspire her with their curiosity, bravery, and tenderness. The Not-So-Scary Scarecrow promotes themes of kindness and inclusion—concepts Mamie’s parents taught her, and concepts Mamie works to pass down to the children in her care.

Mamie lives in Long Island, New York with her husband, sons, and their family dog, Whiskey. Stay tuned for more stories from Mamie Tauk!
