Read it first! Audiobooks that are now movies

Categories: Audiobook Library

Read it before you see it!, We all know that that the book is always better than the movie and with so many book-based movies coming out this summer we want to make sure your child reads the book first. Here are a list of books that are now movies that you can both read and watch with your child.


Coming Soon to Theaters: Scary stories to tell in the dark

Scary stories to tell in the dark

Synopsis
This spooky addition to Alvin Schwartz's popular books on American folklore is filled with tales of eerie horror and dark revenge that will make you jump with fright. There is a story here for everyone -- skeletons with torn and tangled flesh who roam the earth; a ghost who takes revenge on her murderer; and a haunted house where every night a bloody head falls down the chimney. Stephen Gammell's splendidly creepy drawings perfectly capture the mood of more than two dozen scary stories -- and even scary songs -- all just right for reading alone or for telling aloud in the dark. If You Dare!


Aladdin and Arabian Nights

Synopsis
The ragamuffin Aladdin finds an old lamp which makes his fortune; a prince disappears on a flying horse; A falcon proves wiser than a king...These tales of kings and princes, magicians, and talking beasts, which were daily entertainment in India, Persia and Arabia over a thousand years ago, are retold especially for children in this vivid, fresh collection.


The Outsiders

Synopsis
S. E. Hinton's classic story of a boy who finds himself on the outskirts of regular society remains as powerful today as it was the day it was first published.


Lord of the Flies

Synopsis
At first, with no adult supervision, their freedom is something to celebrate. This far from civilization they can do anything they want. Anything. But as order collapses, as strange howls echo in the night, as terror begins its reign, the hope of adventure seems as far removed from reality as the hope of being rescued.
