One goes zip, two go zoom.Three witches glide from room to room.

So begins the witchy counting story Zip! Zoom! on a Broom. Counting up from 1 to 10 and back down again, ten witches jump on a broom -- and then fall off one by one Written in pitch-perfect rhyme, and full of fun read-aloud energy that will have kids memorizing lines and clamoring to read the book again and again, this book hits the mash-up sweet spot between an important concept and Halloween fun.
