Biscuit by Alyssa Satin Capucilli
The first in a series of beginning reader books about a puppy named Biscuit. These are excellent to read to toddlers and preschoolers and just right for children beginning to read on their own. They use simple sentences and repetitive words and phrases enhanced by cute illustrations on each page. In this story, we meet Biscuit and his little girl as she tries to get Biscuit ready for bed. Just like human children, Biscuit needs a drink, a snack, a story, a hug, etc. before he is ready to go to sleep. The Biscuit books are cute and playful and include such activities as Biscuit taking a bath, visiting a farm, making friends with another dog or other animal like a duck, going for a walk, playing in the yard, visiting the beach, and so on.
