Room on the Broom...Review & Giveaway!

Earlier this month a DVD was re-released by Public Media Distribution that is a family must have.  Room on the Broom is based on a favorite children's book and this DVD does a wonderful job of bringing the pages to life.  Here is the scoop....

Room on the Broom is based on the beloved children’s picture book written by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffler and features the voices of Gillian Anderson, Rob Brydon, Martin Clunes, Simon Pegg, Sally Hawkins, Timothy Spall, and David Walliams.

About Room on The Broom
This is the story of a kind witch who invites a surprising collection of animals to join her on her broom, must to the frustration of her cat. When the witch encounters a fearsome and hungry dragon, her animal friends come to her rescue. To show her gratitude, the witch rewards them with a magnificent new broom with room for everyone!
The DVD includes the following special features:
·      Behind the Scenes Documentary
·      Julia Donaldson Live Performance
·      Artwork Gallery


Our Thoughts: If you aren't familiar with the book you can still fall in love with this adorable tale. We have this book in our collection and it is one of those hard to come by times that movie does the book justice.  The book is not very long at maybe a 5 minute read so this 30 minute DVD does stick to the story but it fills in with lovely animation which brings the charming characters and setting to life.  The kindly witch always has room for one more on her broom and children will love seeing all the different animals who come for a ride.  This movie is peaceful and beautiful and very much in the style of The Gruffalo and The Snowman.  This is a wonderful addition to your DVD collection and perfect for the upcoming Halloween season.  You can watch the trailer here....


Buy It!   You can purchase this DVD on Amazon HERE.

Win It!  I am so excited to tell you that one lucky Reviewed by Mom reader will win a DVD copy of Room on the Broom!  Thanks so much to the sponsor and good luck! a Rafflecopter giveaway
