On a beautiful, warm summer day an anxious young boy meets a brand new friend in the form of a book-loving
scarecrow named Pete. Pete introduces his friend to the enjoyment reading and the two share many days of excitement and
adventure as they read their books together on a bale of hay.
Pete eventually goes his merry way to fulfill his life long dream
of becoming a library volunteer but the two stay in touch as
pen-pals and never loose sight of the importance of a good
education attained through literacy.
