Mousekin’s Golden House by Edna Miller
If you can’t find this story, it is online (maybe You Tube) with someone retelling it. This book is timeless. Even though it is an older story, my students still really enjoy watching Mouseskin through his discovery of seeing a jack-o-lantern. I have included several different worksheets to go along with the story.
