Goldie & Bear: Training of the Broom by Bill Scollon - ADVISABLE

Scollon, Bill.  Goldie & Bear: Training of the Broom.  Disney, 2017.  $4.99.  Content: G.  PICTURE BOOK.
This story is based on an episode from Disney Junior’s television show “Goldie & Bear.”  Goldie and Bear are playing hide and seek and they find a magic broom.  They try to ride it, but are unable to.  They take the broom to their witch friend, Ginger, who explains that it isn’t hers and that it isn’t trained.  Goldie and Bear train the broom and ride it.  They see a sign from a little witch who has lost her broom.  They return the magic broom to her and all three go on a ride. 

The illustrations are reminiscent of the animation from the cartoon.  The two main characters learn the importance of returning items that aren’t yours and the joy of finding a new friend.  Young fans of the television series will be delighted with this adaptation of an episode.
