One of my favorites to use for Halloween & Witch storytimes. A witch's hat falls into her magic pot. It turns into a bat, rat & cat as she tries to get it back. 10/31/11

Used again!

I certainly can see the appeal in this book, particularly for its target audience of beginning picture book readers (and listeners). The story repeats, but with skill, building nicely to a good finish that readers will enjoy. Tony Johnston has very notable skills as a picture book writer.
I would give one and a half stars to The Witch's Hat.

This story makes a great read-aloud with some fun repetition that the kids can join in with. I do a "Spooky Brews" storytime with my 2nd grade library students and pair this with Bone Soup.

A funny rhyming book about a witch, and her hat. As that magic hat falls in the cauldron, it takes on a life of it's own, and runs from the witch. She encounters many animals before finding her hat and firmly affixing it to her head as a hat again. Or is it?
