    " Sonia: The witch is beautiful. And she made a pond for the frog, a nest for the bird, seats for the dog and the cat and the witch. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Datoria | 2/11/2014

    " Good for rhyming, sequencing, and imaging. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenilyn Braden | 2/8/2014

    " I really liked this book. I thought it was funny and I think children would think it's funny as well. It's about how a witch keeps trying to fit different characters on her broom when they ask for a ride, and obviously there's not room for all of them so things start to fall off. I also think it would be a good one to teach rhyming words because there are rhyming words in the title and the words are simple enough that little ones would have an easier time picking out the words that rhymed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susan | 2/7/2014

    " This became my grandaughters and my favourite book (along with ?The Gruffalo). We would share the 'reading' of this, each with our own bits of the book (this was long before she could actually read!) 'Witch & chips' for tea would send us into giggles! Can't wait to read it with my younger grandaughter. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marianne Reeves | 1/30/2014

    " What a wonderful story, with fabulous rhythmic style, of a witch and the menagerie who ride on her broom The illustrations are marvelous, the language is witty and wise, and the ending is just a delight! One of my new favorites for Halloween!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brooke Prothero | 1/24/2014

    " Such a cute little story that at the end, my 7 year old son said, "that is a fun story!! Read it again! Read it again!" I read it to the 7, 4, and 3 year old. They were ALL entertained. It's about a cute little witch riding on her broom through the countryside. Some unfortunate things happen that cause her to lose her belongings along the way, but always, there is a friendly little creature that helps her and asks to go on a ride on her broom. She runs into some terrible trouble with a dragon and would have met utter destruction if it weren't for the help of her new friends! SUPER cute and it has such cute little rhyming poetry. Love this one. :) "

    " Lovely illustrations, bright, clear and colourful. Very likeable characters drawn. The rhymes work well for reading aloud. It is a rhyming poem throughout and very very clever - nice rhythm and the children can anticipate it well. There is a great deal to do and think about to extend children's learning from this - as well as social lessons (cooperation, good nature, helping your friends). "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Little Miss and the Legomeister | 1/10/2014

    " I thought the poetry was a bit unwieldy, and the story line started out a bit bland, but I did like the funny twist at the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelly | 1/6/2014

    " Illustrated by Axel Scheffler. Another favorite of mine by Julia Donaldson. A fun, rhythmic book that the kids really get a kick out of -- especially the ending. Adults do too! A great choice for storytime. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Larina Alston | 12/20/2013

    " Such a fun and delightful Halloween Story! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robin Rousu | 12/9/2013

    " Great witchy preschool read aloud from the author illustrator team behind The Gruffalo. Good rhythm and structure. Mostly comical, with a just-scary-enough dragon to add some thrills. A solid choice year-round for witch fans and a top pick for Halloween story times. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Peter Heinrich | 12/4/2013

    " Really adorable story that continues to entertain my 4-and 6-year-old boys (when it stops, I'll be a little sad). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emely | 11/9/2013

    " I definitely didn't see the dragon coming. All and all a really fun book to read with the kids. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stargirl | 10/21/2013

    " I was scared of this book when I was around 5, but I grew to like it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rebecca Roberts | 10/7/2012

    " I highly recommend these books! The little monster couldn't get enough of it, and It's nice to read (without boring the unfortunate reader) I enjoyed it to :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Catriona Rogers | 6/20/2012

    " This was a gift from Ida and Dima for Gillian when we got together at the world fair in Adams Morgan. (2007 or 2008?) We've really enjoyed it, so I read it to Gillian's class in October 2009. The kids got to "predict" what would happen, and to guess what the "monster" was made of. "

    " I was never lucky enough to read this delightful book as a child- I'm just a little too old. Instead, this was one of the most popular requests for story time in a reception classroom I've spent a lot of time helping out in, and with good reason! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Umbreen | 4/4/2011

    " Zaara enjoyed the tale of the witch making new friends on her way. She found the dragon exciting, and she really liked the magic spell at the end of the story. She pretends she is a witch on a broom. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nicole | 10/25/2010

    " A fun story about a witch that is flying her broom and then looses her hat and brings a new friend on board. Thi story is good for imaging because the children can use their previous knowledge to make illustrations for the story. A really fun story for children. "

    " Once again this book would be good for imaging. The written detail is fantastic and can help children learn about forming mental pictures as a story is read to them. Great illustrations also! "
