Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Designed to support little ones as they begin to approach print, this tape and book combination featuring Biscuit the dog is sure to delight these fledgling readers. Biscuit is an irrepressible puppy who follows his little girl everywhere she goes. In this case, she is off to school and Biscuit decides he wants to go, too. He follows her to school and, instead of causing a commotion, he ends up being the hit of the class! Young children will enjoy Biscuit's story and the fun of turning the pages along with the tape. For the first time, they just might feel like a real reader. 2003, HarperCollins Audio, Ages 3 to 5.

School Library Journal
K-Gr 1-Alyssa Capucilli's appealing story (HarperCollins, 2001) of a pup's adventures following his owner to school. The repetitive text makes this a perfect choice for new readers while lively music and sound effects add interest. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Biscuit, Capucilli's playful pooch (Biscuit Wants to Play, 2001, etc.), tries a paw at higher learning. After being admonished by his owner that dogs do not go to school, the curious canine decides to attend for a day. A quick dash across the park deposits the inquisitive pooch inside the school, where Biscuit takes a quick peek at a typical school day. Story time and snack time are the highlights of the puppy's trip, while the gentle suspense of being discovered by the little girl heightens the tension of the tale just enough to sweep hesitant readers along to the conclusion. For this My First I Can Read Book, Capucilli's selection of topic and complexity of vocabulary is right on target for novice readers. Her hallmark combination of questions and statements, liberally interspersed with Biscuit's jovial barks, executed in the most basic language-is at once familiar and encouraging for the youngest reader. Schories's colorful illustrations portray the puppy's exuberant explorations and frequent tumbles into mischief. A warmly and invitingly drawn school environment, populated by friendly students and genial teachers, will resonate with children already in school while allowing little one's a glimpse of what to expect. (Easy reader. 3-5)

I bought this book for my grandson who is in kindergarten and just learning to read and sound out letters. He was able to read this book aloud all by himself--with a little help from me. He was so excited about reading a book all by himself! He has now read the book to the rest of the family. This is a great book for beginning readers to help them build up their reading confidence plus it is a cute story.
