Your tots might still be too young to watch some of your favorite childhood movies like Ghostbusters and E.T., but now you can experience the cherished characters with your young readers in a whole new way with the PlayPop board book series.

Insight Editions has just announced a brand new board book series based on pop culture characters from some of your favorite movies. The collection, which gives parents and kids a fun way to bond over reading, will include six titles in total with the first two debuting on Feb. 4, 2020. Ghostbusters : 1 to 10 Slimer’s Loose Again is a clever counting book featuring the lovable green ghost who spots some silly sights as he ventures through the city.

The second title, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial: E.T.’s First Words features a clever design that allows young readers to learn sight words by spinning a wheel to match words with a specific scene on each page. Even as kids grow older, it makes for an entertaining read as they create silly sentences with the words that don’t match. You can pre-order both books for $9.99 each on Amazon.

In Summer 2020, the series continues with books inspired by Back to the Future and Jim Henson’s Labyrinth. Later in the fall, the last two books will be released: one based on The Dark Crystal and another Ghostbusters-inspired title.
