A little witch leads a group of trick-or-treaters through a Halloween dance in this picture-book intended for the youngest listeners. With no more than a few words per two-page spread - "Bones are for shaking. / Capes are for sneaking. / Mouths are for moaning." - accompanied by brightly colored illustrations of the witch demonstrating the action in question, Broom Are For Flying! is a book made for reading aloud with the toddler and under set. There is even a little surprise at the end, for trick-or-treaters and reader/listeners!

This is a book that really works: it does what it sets out to do, I think, and will hold the attention of its target audience, and keeping them entertained. Unfortunately, it just wasn't to my taste, something I might put down to my age, were it not for the enjoyment I have derived from other early childhood books. The pencil and computer-generated artwork just didn't do anything for me, and given the extreme paucity of text, this just made it impossible to really warm up to the book. Still, mileage varies, on these things, and I would still recommend this title to anyone looking for Halloween story-time selections for the younger childhood crowd. ( )
