Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Biscuit and his little mistress are a cute team. In this book with big flaps, they are busy making valentines for friends and family. Biscuit has a spool of ribbon in his mouth and a valentine stuck to his paw, but he trots off to give a greeting to kitty, neighbor Puddles, and the little girl's grandparents. Best of all, when they get home, there are valentines in the mailbox and an especially big valentine for little Biscuit. 2001, HarperFestival, $6.95. Ages 2 to 6. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot

I read this book to my granddaughter's kindergarten class and they were very attentive because I think they liked the story line. It helped, I think, that they were familiar with other "Biscuit" books. It was very age appropriate.

Biscuit is a sweet, adorable puppy who can't wait for Valentine's Day. Along with "the little girl," Biscuit is making Valentine's Day cards to be delivered to all their friends and family. Who will they deliver their cards too? Biscuit and the little girl deliver several cards to animal friends as well as the girl's grandparents. Once all the cards are delievered and Biscuit and the little girl arrive home, they are thrilled to discover some cards waiting for them. Biscuit's Valentine's Day is a very simple, and very short, story. Each right-hand page flips open to reveal who is hiding behind a door, window, etc. Aimed at the preschooler, there is not much text (or plot) so the book can be read quickly. I suspect most children will be more interested in opening the flaps than paying attention to the story. The child in the Biscuit series of books is never given a name and this makes the story a bit impersonal and the adventure within its pages appear a tad distant. The illustrations, however, are delightful and are the main draw with this book. Biscuit looks quite huggable, particularly with the pink ribbon that he likes to carry in his mouth. Quill says: With the sparse text and charming drawings, this book may appeal to the very young reader.
