Most helpful positive review
Very good book for children, if you watch the DVD first then you will even more appreciate the book. For those who are interested in this one, I also recommend THE GRUFFALO, book and DVD as well. In both DVDs you will find more details than in the books, and the DVDs are not very long so it's perfect for young children (starting age 3-4 years old).

When a witch loses her hat and wand while riding her broomstick, three helpful animals find the missing items. All they want in return is a ride on the broom. Is there room on the broom? Full color. The witch and her cat are happily flying through the sky on a broomstick when the wind picks up and blows away the witch's hat, then her bow, and then her wand!  Luckily, three helpful animals find the missing items, and all they want in return is a ride on the broom.  But is there room on the broom for so many friends?  And when disaster strikes, will they be able to save the witch from a hungry dragon?

I loved the illustrati...

I loved the illustrations of this book. The expressions of the characters show their thoughts and allow the reader to feel the emotions of the book. When the witch loses her bow, the dog's expression shows how distraught he is, this allows the reader to feel his sadness to have been moved to the back of the broom. The main idea of this book is that we should be open to new ideas and that when we work together, we can make anything happen.

In my opinion, I think...

In my opinion, I think "Room on the Broom!" is an excellent book. The first reason I like the book is because of the pace of the story and the rhyming words throughout the story. The rhyming makes fluency easier for the younger readers. Also, the repetition of the rhymes enhances the telling of the story. The second reason it is one of my favorites is because it has humor with a really cute message. In this story, the main character is a witch who keeps losing things as she is taking a ride on her broom. There are animals that help her find the missing items and then want a ride on her broomstick. The language in the story is very descriptive and the rhyming vocabulary is assorted. An example would be, "Over the fields and the forests they flew. The dog wagged his tail and the stormy wind blew. The witch laughed out loud and held on to her hat, But away blew the bow from her braid - just like that!" Some paired words that rhyme within the story are cat, black, hair, back, purred, grinned, broomstick, and wind. I especially like the end of the story where the witch and her new friends enjoy a ride on her "new and improved" broomstick. Even though the main character is a witch, this book is not threatening to young readers. The big idea of the story is that when friends help each other out, everybody wins.

This is a perfect exam...

This is a perfect example of rhyming text, which has the rhythm of one of those exciting narrative poems of yesteryear -- the sort that our grandparents would have had to memorise at school. But this is so much fun. And clever, too. A perfect ending. The author and illustrator obviously collaborated well, because the illustrations tell more than the words, leaving a gap for young readers to fill with glee.

Rhyming is strained in...

Rhyming is strained in places, and missing is punctuation. The charming story is worth the struggle.
