Room on the Broom
By Julia Donaldson
Illustrated by Axel Scheffler
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?

This is a great rhyming story. Just awesome writing and such a fun story with silliness and a great ending. Super fun to read aloud. The story has been put to music and made into an animated short; you can find it on Youtube. It’s charming but you reading it to your child will be much better!
