Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1-Another successful easy reader from the creators of Biscuit (1996) and Biscuit Finds a Friend (1997, both HarperCollins). This time, the appealing tan puppy finds lots of fun things to do instead of having a bath. When Biscuit sees another puppy, they have twice the fun, and get twice as dirty. Finally Biscuit's owner insists on a bath for everyone, and ends up taking one herself. Full-color drawings reinforce the simple text. A familiar theme with plenty of repetition, large print, and just a few short sentences per page make this a good choice for the youngest readers and listeners alike.

From Booklist

Gr.1. The text is brief, and the illustrations have an old-fashioned kind of sweetness in this simple tale depicting the hassles involved in getting a mischievous little dog, Biscuit, into a bath. Biscuit's owner eventually manages the job, but not without Biscuit exacting a predictably comical revenge. The vocabulary is quite basic--see, bath, roll, etc.--and there's plenty of repetition in the text to allow for reading practice. Even if there isn't much that's memorable about the story, new readers will still come away feeling they've had a successful reading experience. Stephanie Zvirin

My 3-year-old loves the Biscuit series. This book takes Biscuit and his little girl owner through an unwanted bath for Biscuit. In usual Biscuit fashion he resists doing what he is supposed to (which may be why the Biscuit series appeals so to older toddlers--they can relate!). The little girl is always patient and sweet, even when Biscuit makes a mess or gets her wet or dirty she continues to treat him nicely. I believe this is a nice lesson for a little one, and the easy-to-read format makes it fun for them to make "Bow wow" and "Woof" sounds along with the main character. When my 5-year-old started to read the Biscuit books were popular with her because she could feel a sense of accomplishment when she could read it herself.

We recently introduced Biscuit to our daughter (nearly age 2 yrs). She asks to read about Biscuit's bath several times a day and comments as we read together. The word repetition creates an easy rhythm we both enjoy. The text and drawings work well together.

It is time for Biscuit to have a bath. The Girl In The Purple Sneakers has everything all set. Everything except Biscuit who has other things he would like to do. This is also the First book where his friend Puddles shows up.
Biscuit is reluctant to take his bath, but after making a mess and some puddles of his own, it is finally time to get clean.
This is one of the earliest and best Biscuit books. My daughter loves it and I can use it to illustrate that when things need to be done, we will get them done even if she resists.
More great illustrations and text that my daughter likes to illuminate with her own story telling and hand gestures.

My 6-year-old brought this book home from school, and it's a fine learning-to-read book for her. What struck her, though, was the (unintentionally?) hilarious nature of a few of the illustrations. They have to be seen to be appreciated. Call us juvenile, but we laughed until we cried. I'm buying one for home, and more for gifts! Thanks, Biscuit!

My 5-year-old daughter loves the Biscuit series of books and though we got the series last year, she still takes them off the shelf and reads them by herself and even to me, without being asked! Now, that's a winning series to me as through these two years since I began to teach her reading skills, we've gone through many different readers by various publishers (many of which I've reviewed in terms of how helpful/effective they've been) and only certain series have appealed to her. Being a visual learner, colorful and interesting illustrations are important, but at the same time they should not detract from the reading itself.

The Biscuit series of books has Biscuit the Dog go on simple yet fun adventures. This story is one of our favorites as Biscuit tries to avoid taking a bath with funny scenes that had my daughter giggling. The vocabulary is simple with familiar sight words that will motivate a young child who is just beginning to read. It helps to build confidence in reading whilst engaging a young reader's interest through the colorful illustrations and charming story. This is a wonderful and appealing series for early readers.

In the book Bathtime for Biscuit, written by, Alyssa Satin, its time for bath. Woof! Woof! Biscuit wants to play. Its time for a bath. Woof! Woof! Biscuit wants to dig. Its time for a bath Woof! Woof! Biscuit wants to roll. Time for a bath biscuit. Tme to get nice and clean. Woof! Woof! In you go! Woof! Biscuit does not want a bath. Will biscuit ever take a bath? My favorite parts is when Biscuit jumps out of the tub so he can play with his friend, Poodles. This book reminds me of when my puppy Rosco did not want to take a bath. This is a good book for anyone that has a puppy, so they will understand that puppies do not like bathes!

In Bath Time for Biscuit Biscuit’s owner tried to give her a bath. Biscuit gets out of the bath and finds a new friend. The owner fell into the bath and the two dogs want to get in too.

My favorite parts are when Biscuit didn’t want to go in the bath. Then the girl fell into the bath and it was so funny and I loved it. When Biscuit rolled in a mud puddle it so funny and I laughed so hard.

Kids who are seven should read this book because it is so funny.

My 18-month old daughter adores this Biscuit book. (And now, some others as well.) The pictures couldn't be cuter, and the text is interesting and there's just enough of it to keep her engaged. It's a very fun, simple story, but she definitely "gets it." I think what makes it appealing to her is that it's got a real narrative element to it, as opposed to most of her books, which are just pictures and words, or nonsensical rhymes that don't really have a point.
