Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Biscuit is a cute little dog, and when he discovers a basket with two little kittens, he wants to play. The kittens seem to have their own idea of what constitutes play—they chase a leaf, a cricket and a butterfly. The latter gets them in a bit of trouble when they end up in the crook of a tree and can't get down. Woof! Woof! It's Biscuit to the rescue as his barking brings the girls to effect the real rescue. Now the kittens decide it is time to play with Biscuit. The watercolor illustrations will charm young and old and the story is just right for the preschool audience. Simple sentences, a little tension and a very happy ending. A "My First I Can Read Book." 2001, HarperTrophy,
— Marilyn Courtot
School Library Journal
K-Gr 1-Another easy-to-read adventure about a fuzzy brown pup. When Biscuit meets two kittens, he wants to play with them, but the kittens are more interested in exploring on their own. However, when they chase a butterfly up a tree and become stuck on a branch, it is Biscuit's bark that results in a rescue. The large typeface, basic vocabulary, short sentences, and simple plot are right on target for beginning readers. The soft watercolor illustrations, which feature a farm setting and a cast of appealing characters, help to convey the action of the text. A good choice for this pup's fans and for those ready to take the very first steps toward reading.-Wendy S. Carroll, Montclair Cooperative School, NJ Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

    Great for beginning readers!

    The Biscuit books are great for beginning readers. All of the books in this series have repeating words and sentence structures. Both boys and girls enjoy reading about the adventures of Biscuit!
