Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-Biscuit bounds onto the scene ready for action in his newest adventure. Teaching her dog to fetch a ball takes patience and perseverance from his little girl and creates lots of fun along the way. Daisy the cat distracts him from his task, but when the ball rolls into an appealing mud puddle, the pup can't resist running after it. Schories's colorful cartoonlike illustrations draw readers into this simple story that provides plenty of repetition for new readers.-Janie Schomberg, Leal Elementary School, Urbana, IL Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|
Kirkus Reviews
Capucilli's (Bathtime for Biscuit, not reviewed) frolicsome puppy romps through another adventure in this latest entry in the My First I Can Read Book series. Biscuit's owner attempts to teach the energetic pup how to fetch a ball. Instead, Biscuit rolls over, retrieves a bone, and chases the cat before finally returning with the ball. Capucilli skillfully relates a lively tale using simple language. The humorous antics of the pup will hold beginning readers' interest while brief, simple sentences and repetition of words allows them to master the tale on their own. Story and artwork are in perfect harmony. Schories's bright illustrations capture the impetuous spirit of the frisky canine and offer visual clues to support the words. The combination of engaging text and vivacious pictures provides encouragement for reluctant readers. This continuation of the lovable puppy's capers is a real treat and will have audiences clamoring for more. (Easy reader. 46)

My four year old is learning how to read, but most of the early reader or pre-reader books have too many words on each page and are overwhelming. I like that this book has just a few sentences with a lot of repeating words. It means that on any given page, he's remembering certain words and gaining confidence in his reading skills, while also sounding out new words. The entire Biscuit series is perfect for someone like my son. The pictures are cute and my two year old asks questions about those while her brother reads the book aloud to us. Both of them ask for this book daily.
