Great Movie Tie-Ins for Kids

Monsters University and Despicable Me 2 are hitting theaters this summer. Both of these movies have book tie-ins that are great for encouraging kids to read this summer.  Check some of them out below! Mike Wazowski and James P. “Sulley” Sullivan are an inseparable pair, but that wasn’t always the case. From the moment these two mismatched monsters met, they couldn’t stand each other. The prequel to Disney/Pixar’s blockbuster hit Monsters, Inc., Monsters University unlocks the door to how Mike and Sulley overcame their differences and became the best of friends. Screaming with laughter and fun, the film opened on June 21, 2013.

This fun story has been released by Pixar in a number of different ways. Monsters University is available as a Little Golden Book, a read-along book, and a sticker book. Each of these versions is great in their own way–presenting the story of Mike and Sully with different types of beautiful artwork. Come look through these books today!


There are also a couple of supplemental books that have been released for Monsters University. Call or come in to find out more!

A copy of Mike’s yearbook–or rather “fear” book–has also been released for fans to enjoy. Printed like a real-life yearbook, the book features signatures from classmates and full-color photos of students. There are pages dedicated to sports, student life, and students clubs. The artworks is beautifully well done and very fun for kids. This book is a great supplement for any Monsters University fan!

Monsters University isn’t the only fun movie coming out this summer…
