Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Judy Katsh
Part of a beginning reading series called "My First I Can Read Book." this little gem proves that, in the hands of a craftsman, a limited vocabulary book can tell a real story that is of real interest to its readers. Biscuit is a puppy who has jist as much trouble getting ready for sleep as his young human companion does. The full color pictures by the award-winning illustrator beguile, while the repetitive text entices young readers to read.
Children's Literature - Meredith Kiger
Second in a series of "Biscuit" stories about a small brown puppy, it is one of the "My First I Can Read Book" designed for the emergent reader. With 3-8 words per page, repetition and simply drawn illustrations, this 24 page story of Biscuit's adventure with his newly found duckling friend will be a hit for Biscuit friends.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1Capucilli and Schories team up again for another beginning reader featuring Biscuit the puppy. Here, the dog and his young owner find a duckling and reunite it with its family in the pond. Colorful and appealing watercolor illustrations, surrounded by ample white space, support the text. Biscuit's face is filled with new-puppy curiosity and his tail seems to be constantly wagging. Short, simple sentences in large-sized print contribute to the readability. Plenty of "quacks" and "woofs" encourage expressive telling aloud. Sure to be a popular choice.Sharon R. Pearce, San Antonio Public Library, TX
Kirkus Reviews
Biscuit Finds A Friend (24 pp.; PLB May 11, 1997; 0-06-027412-3; PLB 0-06-027413-1): A bland throwback to another era in the My First I Can Read series. Biscuit (Biscuit, 1996, not reviewed, etc.) finds a duckling who has lost its parents. With the help of his girl owner, Biscuit reunites duckling and parents, with a dip in the drink and plenty of woofing and quacking to cement the friendship. Not much happens: The restricted vocabulary puts this book in a league with Dick and Jane's leaden exploits, and while the illustrations are sweet, they don't pack much oomph.

    Pretty grim, but fab illustrations!

    The text is excruciating and the accompanying voice is unbearable to listen to, but the illustrations are utterly charming and make this a firm favourite (unfortunately) with my two year old!

    Great books

    My son is almost two, and he loves the biscuit books. He will sit on my lap and read them for hours ad it's very hard to get a two year old to sit for any length of time! Worth the $4.99 price and more.

    Deseptive

    I only ordered this book for my brother because on the look inside it says that this book was made in USA. When I received it I realized it was made in China.. This is very missleading!!!!

    Highly Recommend

    I bought 2 of these for my 5 year old granddaughter for Christmas. She was so excited. After she had opened all her gifts she brought the books to me so we could read together. After the 1st couple of pages and just a little help from me she was sounding out the words and reading the book. One of the best Christmas presents I have ever bought her.
