Review: Zip! Zoom! On a Broom


Zip! Zoom! On a Broom

by Teri Sloat (Author), Rosalinde Bonnet (Illustrator) Published by Little, Brown Books for Young Readers

A delicious Halloween treat, Zip! Zoom! On a Broom counts up to ten and back while racing through anights adventure for ten crazy witches.

One goes zip,

two go zoom.

Three witches glide from room to room.

Just try to keep up with these gory gals, as they go on an adventure with skeletons, monsters, bats, haunted castles, volcanoes,eagles, frogs, rainstorms, lightening, dragons… this is one wild group! While the story and illustration are amazing,

I think what sets this one apart is that it counts both up to and back from the number ten, and with all the witches trying to stay on the same broom, the visual component of addition as well as subtraction is present.

Fast paced and fun enough to hold an audience but consistent enough to get the fundamentals across, Zip! Zoom! On a Broom is a wonderful addition to your October bedtimes or school’s seasonal reading routine.

Available from Little, Brown Books for Young Readers, this book is also available in Kindle for travel by broomstick!

Happy Reading!
