A special, fun book to share

It's a clever rhyme and a sweet story that teaches a subtle lesson about how doing things for others can ultimately benefit oneself. I also appreciate how everything is not spelled out for the reader and there are some portions near the end that the child has to figure out. Very clever and fun to read aloud. Although the main character is a witch this book is not Halloween-specific. It is definitely appropriate for any time of the year. Here is a snippet of the book: "The witch had a cat and a very tall hat, And long ginger hair which she wore in a plait, How the cat purred and how the witch grinned As they sat on their broomstick and flew through the wind." Author: Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler
