    This is great for little kids as it tells them about witches without scaring them.

    This is an unforgetable tale of an old witch who has a broom and each time she lands a little animal asks: “Is there room on the broom for a thing like me”. I recommend this book for young readers aged 2-6

    I Think book is for toddlers,in my opinion. This book can help young learners to read and you will love this book like I did when I was younger. But now that I am older I still like to read it although I’m in My last year in primary School. But I have to say that the Book “Room on the Broom” helped me to learn to read (In my Opinion) And I hope it will do the same for you

    I got this book when I was a bit younger and thought it was quite good, would recommend to age group 3-5 yrs, although my mum loves it (because it rhymes, and she is a lot older) !

    This is a favourite book of mine and my children (3 year old boys). I got it for them when they were about 20 mths old and it is still read to them now.
