K-3 - When it is time for a small yellow puppy named Biscuit to go to bed, Biscuit finds many excuses to stay up. This timeless tale of Biscuit's young owner trying to get her puppy to sleep mimics that of a parent and a child's many bedtime requests. Although the book is aimed at the reading skills of k-3, even younger children would enjoy having the story read to them. The theme is very relatable to young children who may want "just one more thing" before bed. Readers follow Biscuit's girl as she patiently provides her puppy with all of his before bed desires. Biscuit is a transitional, My First level, book from the I Can Read! series by HarperCollins and also the first in a series of Biscuit books by Alyssa Satin Capucilli. The "My First" level is meant to be read along with the emergent reader. The book contains mostly three and four words long sentences with simple sight words without any surprising descriptors. The vocabulary should be very familiar to young children. The book has enough repetition to familiarize children with words and gain reading confidence, while introducing new activities on each page. The brief night time rituals keep the story interesting and should appeal towards a child's curiosity about what will happen next. Illustrator Pat Schories uses muted primary colors to set the evening tone. The illustrations are simple yet realistic, illustrating the caring actions that meet the puppy's requests. Reinforcing the text, the illustrations give clues to the words the young emergent reader is learning and captures the patience and love between the girl and her puppy.

This book has great illustrations done in soft colors, so it is quite soothing for a bedtime story. Adults will enjoy the slight humor as the book shows all of the "stalling" tactics of a young puppy when it's owner is trying to put it to bed. "Biscuit" wants a drink, he wants a hug, he wants a blanket, etc.... finally he ends up curled up in the little girl's room on a corner of her comforter on the floor! Our grandson loves it, and sometimes we have read it as many as ten times all in a row! I highly recommend the entire "Biscuit" series for young children.

My grandson LOVES this series! He'll stop playing the Wii(one of his favorite free time activities) to come read books on the Nook....or have the Nook read the book to him.

I recommend Biscuit books for beginning readers. The stories use words repeatedly to help the child learn them. My daughter loves them and likes to read them over and over again.

We purchased this for my daughter for her first Christmas when she was 8 months old. She used to like to hear it at bedtime...despite all our antics, this audio tape put her to sleep like magic! 14 years later, she still lisens to Biscuit every night before bed. She's an outstanding reader, an incredible student, and a fun-loving teen...but, there's something soothing. Believe it or not, it even relaxes me when I have too much on my mind to sleep. It's a must-have item! Enjoy!

Biscuit was a great book, and it inspired me to become a diligent reader in later years. great book for beginner readers.

This is a cute story about a puppy who doesn't want to go to sleep. The illustrations are nice, but I found the writing itself really simple and repetitive. Not the most fun to read out loud. But, my 2-yr-old daughter asks for this book often. At bedtime she says, "Biscuit! Biscuit!" when she wants us to read it. We do add more to the story, and point out different objects in the illustrations and ask what they are to get a little more from reading it. I would recommend it as a storytime book for very young toddlers.

As a Speech Pathologist and a Mom, this is one of my favorite book series. Biscuit is so sweet and predictable text is great for learning to read.

My 19month old son and I read this on the Nook or it reads it to us. He LOVES it! good puppy book

I usually read my son slightly more complex stories, but I'm keeping in mind that this is for beginner readers specifically, to read by themselves. The story is cute - a pup that invents ways to stay awake to avoid going to bed (something my child is definitely guilty of!)

My 2yr old loves Biscuit. We bought this a few months ago and he has insisted on a Biscuit book every night since. The pictures are great and he loves everything about this book. Bed time is not his favorite time of day but when this book comes out he lays down and listens. We have since bought several other books in this series and he loves them all. This is a great bridge between baby bed time books like Goodnight Moon and the longer Dr Suess stuff.
