This time of year kids love a good Halloween-themed picture book, and this batch for kids aged 6-8 includes a few bargains.
Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas (4.5/5 stars, currently priced at $7.69)
In this beloved picture book that could only come from the visionary mind of author and illustrator TIM BURTON, we meet Jack Skellington– a well-intentioned inhabitant of Halloweenland.
Jack is bored of ‘the scaring, the terror, the fright….tired of being something that goes bump in the night’.
And so, in an effort to bring to joy to his town, Jack kidnaps Santa and takes his place as the jolly old elf.
But instead of bringing joy to the world Jack, who is a little more than a grinning skeleton, brings fear by delivering creepy toys and riding a sleigh carried by skeletal reindeer. Only through a number of things going horribly wrong does Jack learn the true meaning of Christmas.
At The Old Haunted House (4.5/5 stars, currently priced at $1.00)
At the old haunted house
In a room with no sun
Lived a warty green witch
And her wee witchy one.
There are all kinds of creatures in the house: a big Ma monster and her wee monsters two, a scrawny black cat and her wee kittens three, a green Pa goblin and his wee goblins four, and more!
Count along as the creatures prepare for the Halloween Fright.
The text, written in the pattern of the popular poem “Over in the Meadow,” makes reading aloud fun, while the cinematic illustrations set the scene for an unforgettable romp through the old haunted house. Trick or treat!
Pumpkin Jack (4.5/5 stars, currently priced at $3.82)
The first pumpkin Tim ever carved was fierce and funny, and he named it Jack.
When Halloween was over and the pumpkin was beginning to rot, Tim set it out in the garden and throughout the weeks he watched it change.
By spring, a plant began to grow!
Will Hubbell’s gentle story and beautifully detailed illustrations give an intimate look at the cycle of life.
This is a fixed-format ebook, which preserves the design and layout of the original print book.
Halloween Hustle (4.5/5 stars, currently priced at $1.00)
In the dark, a funky beat.
Something white with bony feet.
Skeleton dancing up the street, Doing the Halloween Hustle.
Skeleton is dancing his way to a Halloween party—but as he grooves across town, he keeps stumbling, tumbling, and falling apart!
Can Skeleton stay in one piece long enough to make it to the party?
