PreS-Gr 2--Young readers will be sympathetic to this endearing puppy's nighttime routine: wanting a snack, a drink, a hug and a kiss; hearing a story; getting his blanket and doll; and being tucked in. In fact, just like young audiences, Biscuit wants some of these rituals performed twice. This bedtime drama is simplified by clear, large pictures, oodles of contextual clues, simple sentence structure, and repetitive words and phrases. An appealing choice for just-beginning readers.

Gr. K-1. Part of the My First I Can Read Book series, this very simple book introduces a puppy named Biscuit, who is small and yellow and makes his needs known by barking, "Woof! Woof!" At least his young owner thinks she can interpret his barks, but sometimes Biscuit has his own ideas. This does just what it's supposed to--it offers an appealing story with a minimum of words that will encourage new readers. The very simple, good-size pictures depict the heart of the action. A sweet entry to reading. (Reviewed Aug. 1996)¾: Ilene Cooper.:
