Did you know that when Tim Burton originally conceived of The Nightmare Before Christmas, it was written as a poem? This is just one of the fun facts that you will learn in this fun and interesting sticker book, and what’s particularly clever about this is that it also means that the fact that this book is written as a full-length poem is Nightmare coming full circle!
To supplement the facts you’ll learn in the sticker book, check out this article about the making of The Nightmare Before Christmas on the D23 website – trust me, you won’t regret it!
As you know if you picked up Kaplan’s Loki Little Golden Book (perfect for the Kid Variant in your life), he has a gift for conveying fun and engaging tales in a way that readers of any age can appreciate, and the diction of his clever rhymes may even expand some of your young reader’s vocabularies.
Furthermore, the fun facts that appear on each page will delight fans of the movie, no matter what their age. For example, the animators kept a stash of spare arms, shoes, and hands so they could quickly replace these puppet pieces when they were broken! Now, that’s thinking on your stop-animated feet!
Fun Sticker Activity!
In addition to the text, The Nightmare Before Christmas Sticker Art Puzzles book features fifteen sticker puzzles. Here’s how they work: first, the individual stick puzzle pieces can be found in the pages in the back of the book.
Next, you take the pieces and assemble them on the designated sticker puzzle pages, which appear opposite the pages with Kaplan’s poem and fun facts.
Finally, you can check against the solution pages in the middle of the book, which offer numbered diagrams to help you figure out the proper placement for every sticker.
