This book if the prefect book to read around halloween to elementary school aged children. I would also like to plan an activity where we would all carve of own "scary" jack O lantern. I think the book is great to keep children interested and engaged throughout the lesson.

I would use this story to talk to the students about legends. I would tell them that legends are passed from generation to generation and are usually fictitous stories. I would then talk to the students about halloween safety.
I got this book at a book exchange when I was in the Second grade. I love Halloween and this book was pretty because it had sparkles on it. :P But aside from its cover this book is a very cute book and one that has become my favorites and I will read it to my two boys every Halloween.
