Room on the Broom

I am a sucker for children’s books. I work hard to build thematic sets of books for my day care kids, so when I heard about Room on the Broom I was beyond excited. 
 Room on the Broom story book is written by Julia Donaldson. While this story spent some time as a bestseller, I had never read it! I am always looking for books though and wanted to see if Room on the Broom fit as both a fun Halloween book and a good story.  
and YES! It does!
 Room on the Broom is a story easy enough for small toddler and preschool children to follow but with enough detail and depth of story to entertain older school age children. The illustrations alone clearly tell the story, but the playful and whimsical cadence of the text brings the artwork to life. It is not hard at all to fall in love with the not so scary witch who keeps bringing friends onto her broom. 
Our craft was one more way to enjoy Room on a Broom.

You can find this fabulous book and video below.

You can also view the entire video on Netflix.


The Litte Witch
tune: Muffin Man

Do you know the little witch, the little witch, the little witch
Do you know the little witch
with the cat and the broom?

Oh, yes I know the little witch, the little witch, the little witch
yes I know the little witch
with the cat and the broom.

Repeat with the other animals that sit on her broom:

with the cat, and the dog on the broom?
with the cat, the dog, and the bird on the broom?
with the cat, the dog, the bird, and the frog on the broom?
