Room on the Broom - Julia Donaldson.

Room on the BroomRoom on the Broom by Julia Donaldson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The witch and her cat fly happily over forests, rivers and mountains on their broomstick until a stormy wind blows away the witch’s hat, bow and wand. They are retrieved by a dog, a bird and a frog, and each animal asks for a ride on the broom. They climb on, one after the next, until the broom is so heavy that it snaps in two! What will happen next as they tumble into a bog and meet a greedy dragon?

This is a story I regularly read to my class at school and they love it!They don't mind that it has been read a hundred times to them, it's one of their favourites!
The children love joining in with parts of the story and they are so animated reading it.

It is also a book that we have been able to enjoy and use in lessons to develop the children's understanding of rhyme and character description, the beautiful illustrations allow this to be done very easily.
