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.
