Room on The Broom Review

Dear Friends,

I am happy to review the beloved children's DVD, Room on The Broom, based upon the #1 best-selling children’s picture book written by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffle. This award-winning animated film also brought you the Academy Award nominated The Gruffalo and The Gruffalo’s Child

"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 frogfind 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 ismuch 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!"

The DVD was very fun and entertaining, an excellent choice for young children. The story line is very well written and the ending teaches children the important lesson of sharing, helping and looking out for others. This is also a great movie for the classroom. As a tutor and ESL instructor, I intend to show this movie in mid October to my young students in grades 1-2; I am sure they will love it!
