Room on the Broom DVD and Picture Book Review
From the team that brought you the Academy Award nominated The Gruffalo and The Gruffalo’s Child comes the award-winning animated film, Room on the Broom! This new DVD is based on the #1 best-selling children’s picture book written by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffler.
In this tale of friendship and adventure, join a friendly witch and her cat as they fly happily through the sky on their broomstick—until the witch drops her hat, then her bow, then her wand! Luckily, three helpful animals—a dog, a parrot and a frog—find the missing items and all they want in return is a ride on the broomstick. But is there room on the broom for so many new friends? The kindly witch thinks there is—much to the frustration of her cat. But when disaster strikes, and the witch is about to be eaten by a fearsome dragon, she is saved by the gang of animals, all working together.
The witch’s cat learns the importance of friends and family, and the witch rewards her new friends with a magnificent broom that is big enough for everyone! There are more fun filled and educational activities based on this endearing story available for FREE on: www.entertainmentthateducates.com
My Experience: I received a copy of the Room on the Broom picture book, as well as the DVD for review for my six year-old son, Braxton. That very day, Braxton and his sister, Myelie watched the DVD and they loved it! That night, when Braxton was in bed, I read him the book. I was very impressed with the colorful illustrations, and I love the way the story is written. It is written in a beautiful poetic rhyming stance similiar to that of Dr. Suess. Everything flows together so very perfectly! It is so much fun to read. The story in itself is very cute and completely entertaining. Such an adorable story and endearing characters. I have read this book to Braxton every night since we received it and he falls asleep to the 'melody' in my voice. We both absolutely love Room on the Broom! And, with Halloween coming, this story is perfect to get kids excited for it!
