How can children's book publisher HarperCollins improve Alyssa Satin Capucilli's Biscuit series? By offering 10 of Biscuit's most endearing stories in one book. That's exactly what they've done with the "Biscuit Storybook Collection."

Biscuit is a sweet-faced puppy you want to grab right out of the pages and cuddle. He and the little girl share the simple joys of childhood, like getting ready for bed and having a picnic. They share the excitement of adventures like being in a pet show and having a birthday party. They share the ability to take things that don't turn out quite right and make them wonderful.

The "Biscuit Storybook Collection" is the perfect book to introduce a child to the joys of reading.

The large typeface, simple words and repetition make the stories easy to read. The sweet plots and the delightful illustrations by Pat Schories make the stories a joy to read. The pictures are very gentle, with soft lines and colors, but are full of expression and activity. They are very effective at creating interest and encouraging the beginning reader to keep going to find out what happens next.

The stories included in the "Biscuit Storybook Collection" are:

Biscuit

Biscuit Wins a Prize

Biscuit's New Trick

Happy Birthday, Biscuit!

Biscuit's Picnic

Biscuit's Day at the Beach

Time to Paint Biscuit!

Biscuit Meets the Neighbors

Biscuit Goes to the Park

Biscuit and the Bunny

The "Biscuit Storybook Collection" is a must-have for your child's library. At my 3-year old's insistence, we have read stories from the "Biscuit Storybook Collection" every day since we got the book (2 months ago.

This is a wonderful collection of about 10 "Biscuit" stories. We recently discovered "Biscuit" and my 2 year old daughter (and I!) have become smitten with him! I have been trying to get as many Biscuit books as I can find! "Biscuit" stories are really very short and very simply written, cheerful, sweet, innocent tales of puppy mischief - perfect for bedtime. We read two books every night, and it is always a favorite when it's a "Biscuit" book. The illustrations also really make the book - the colors are soft, and even the paper feels nice. It is nice to have a collection of several stories in one book like this, but I would say that the book is rather heavy and not easy to hold while lying down, so I think we prefer the individual story books. Either way, it's a real gift for a young child to have a Biscuit story read to them. Buy this!

Here is what my 7 year-old has to say about it:

"I really love it. It is easy to read. It has ten fantastic stories in it! I like it very much because I love puppies! Other kids would like it, too. It helps me practice reading. I love Biscuit!"

Format: Hardcover
My granddaughter was only about ten months old when I got her this book, but she loved it right from the start! She's now fourteen months old, and she always brings this to me to read to her.

The pictures are extremely cute -- seeing Biscuit actually makes my granddaughter smile and point. The stories are simple ones about things like making new friends or going on a picnic. They're only about fifteen pages long each, with large illustrations and only a few lines on each page, which is just right for babies to listen to, or for small children who are learning to read.

The entire book is over 190 pages long, so with ten stories between the covers, this is a really good value compared to buying the individual books, plus you get a nice hardbound cover. (But if you're buying it to read to a toddler, as I did, watch for grabby little hands that like to pull on the pages!)

I can't recommend this highly enough for small children. They'll want you to read it to them over and over again.

My 6 year old loves Biscuit books so I got him this one for his birthday. It's really a good price for so many of the books. He is very proud of himself as he completes each book because he's read a lot of pages in a big book. If I were to complain I would say the pages are a little thin so you have to be careful not to tear them. Overall though I would recommend this. My son holds on to this like a favorite toy, being sure to keep it away from his little sister. Who wouldn't want their child to treasure a book!

My just turned 5 year old daughter LOVES this book. She will read it from cover to cover in one sitting. The Biscuit series is such a good one for children just learning to read and this is book is wonderful to include so many of these great stories.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The 'Biscuit' collection is a beautifully illustrated, full color, 190+ pages hardbound tome. It is a compilation of 10 separate Biscuit books written for beginner readers. The 'books' are all bound together in the hard cover and there is no table of contents.

The stories, covering the interactions between a little girl and her puppy and between the two of them and 'the world', are told in large typefaces with no more than 3 lines per page. The sentences are short and nearly all words should be familiar to a 4-6 year old. All pages are illustrated and some pages have illustrations only - no words.

Biscuit was one of the Christmas presents our daughter received. It was a welcome present because the book just happens to be at her reading level (K) and she is now taking great pride in reading the stories herself - with some help from dad and mom or her bigger brothers, of course. This is her first 'big book'. She loves being able to read full sentences all by herself and the fact that the girl pictured in the book looks almost like her twin sister doesn't hurt either :)
