One of my favorite books for children is The Spooky Old Tree, a Berenstain Bears tale. It's entertained at least two generations in my family so far. I discovered today that it was made into a board game. Luckily, this site has some very high resolution images of the game. If you came up with your own spinner and pawns, I think you could pretty much infer the rules. A great game for little ones, I'd think. Though it might seem dirt simple, there's a direct line of continuity between this and games like Talisman.
