The Lovereading4Kids comment

A book of nine songs and music together with an accompanying CD including her most famous Room on the Broom.

Julia may well be one of the UK’s best-loved picture book authors but she is also a very talented song writer and singer as is shown by this wonderful volume that includes piano accompaniment and guitar chords for each score. This will ensure that even the most reluctant toddler will be hooked on the hilariously funny rhymes and appealing characters from a good witch and a bad dragon to a dog and a frog.

Room On The Broom and other songs by Julia Donaldson

A witch and her cat fly over forests, rivers and mountains on their broomstick until a stormy wind blows away the witch's hat, bow and wand. They are retrieved by a dog, a bird and a frog, but each animal asks for a ride and the broom snaps and they tumble into a bog and meet a greedy dragon!

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

It’s a community united by a passion for books and promoting the best there is in children’s literature.
