Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Joan Carris
As a "My First I Can Read," this tale of Biscuit's bath is on the simplest level of all the "I Can Read" titles. Text is limited to one to three brief lines per page, and "Time for a bath, Biscuit!" is as tricky as it gets. Still, the puppy outwits his mistress and runs off to play with his buddy-dog, Puddles, in a fine, muddy place. It's the earnest young mistress who ends up in the tub. Simple, bright art enhances this amusing story for our very newest readers.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-Biscuit the puppy is adorable and mischievous and would rather roll in the mud with his puppy friend, Puddles, than be bathed by his young owner. His owner eventually manages to get him into the bath, but not before she ends up getting one herself. Narrator Andrea Kessler provides a fun retelling of the story by Alyssa Satin Capucilli (HarperCollins, 1998). Playful background music supplements the telling nicely. One side of the tape has page-turn signals, while on side two the story is told uninterrupted. Although this title is classified as a "preschool reader" by the publisher, this age group will have trouble tackling words such as "friend," "sprinkler," and "Biscuit" on their own. However, youngsters will appreciate and enjoy the silliness of the story. Plenty of repetitive text makes this a good choice for beginning readers. A useful addition to school and public libraries.-Shauna Yusko, King County Library System, Bellevue, WA Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.

I read this book 4 times every night, give or take. My 18 month old girl just LOVES puppies& can't get enough of this book. She like to "woof" and "bow-wow" along as I read... It's simple enough that it will probably be one of the first books she reads too, so i'd say it's been well worth the money!  :)

My grand daughter is 4...she loves all the Bicuit Story's...and this one didn't disappoint. I love the illustrations in these books that go a long with the story. I would highly recommend...my grand daughter is learning to read and this is a great book for early learners as well as my 6 year old grand daughter who can read...
