Room on the Broom Review
Halloween is right around the corner and I have something special to share with you. This year celebrate Halloween with Room on the Broom children's book and their new app. The amazing author of Room on the Broom is Julia Donaldson, UK Children's Laureate and illustrator Axel Scheffler. You may be familiar with one of their previous books Gruffalo and The Gruffoalo's Child.
Room on the Broom is a great children's book. I was not sure when I first received the book. I am not fond of witches, but Room on the Broom has changed my mind about witches. A little bit about the book. This book shares humor, adventure and teaches your child the importance of family, friend and teamwork. It about a happy witch and her cat and they are flying through the sky on their broomstick - until the witch drops her hat, bow and her wand. There are the helpful animals to help the nice witch out. In return they want to ride on her broomstick. After everyone is on the broomstick the witch thinks that it will hold everyone, except when the broom breaks she will have to face a mean dragon. Will her new friends come through for the nice witch?
They also came out with a new The Room on the Broom Games app. The room on the Broom is a high quality game app that is recommend for ages 3-7. This app features beautiful design based on Alex Scheffler's original illustrations. What I love about this app is that it is age appropriate and safe for our children. My son was entertained with this app for hours. This app provides 8 imaginative activities. This app provides players to interact and explore within the app. Your child can practicing early learning skills. Your child will learn counting skills, creativity and literacy. Your child will get to play with the characters that are feature in Room on the Broom. They can help the characters and get them to fly, eat and explore their world.
Another great thing about this app that there is no in app charges. That is what always gets me mad, because my children tend to charge me with in app charges. Which makes this app great. You can purchase this app through the iTunes stores for iPad, iPad Mini, iPhone, iPod Touch, GooglePlay, Amazon for Android device priced at 4.99.
