Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

PreS-K. This My First I Can Read Book about a popular puppy character comprises one-syllable words, most of which are among those children first learn when beginning to read: run, dog, big, etc. But even without recognizing all the words, children can easily follow the story through the clear, unfussy pictures that spell out each action, including the sweet, upbeat conclusion, which puts Biscuit in the spotlight. The plot, which follows little Biscuit as he tries to do everything his big friend, Sam, does, may even strike a few little ones as a bit familiar, especially if they have older sibs. REVWR

We love Biscuit at our house. My 6-year-old daughter loves to read Biscuit books because the stories are fun and Biscuit is adorable! My 7-year-old son will say this is a "little kid" book, but secretly peeks over his sister's shoulder as she reads.

Format: Paperback
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. The story here explores Biscuit's friendship with a bigger dog, Sam. 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.

We love Biscuit at our house. For my son who is just learning to read these books are perfect. He can usually pick them up and only struggle with one or two words out of the whole book.

My one-year old granddaughter asks for this story again and again. As usual in this series, the illustrations are great. Biscuit saves the day when he retrieves the ball!
