These books are very short, very repetitive, very predictable, very simple.

Great early readers.

They could also be great for toddlers and babies, who use that repetition to learn to speak, but they're written so simply that you'll be bored to tears after reading the book more than three times. And

you can read these books several times in one sitting, they're that short.

Give them to your kid when they start reading and insist that THEY read the books - not you. Do not fall into the trap of reading them. Ever. If your kid is like the ones I know, they'll fall in love and you'll be trapped.

Genre: Realistic Fiction
Age Appropriateness: Primary
Review: This book is a good example of realistic fiction because the narrative is a true depiction of life today. Conflicts in this book are situations that people face in real life. In this simple narrative, a small dog, Biscuit, and her owner

help bring a little duck back to the pond to his family. They become friends and play with each other.
Media: This book is a good example of ink and wash because the characters are outlined in ink and filled in with watercolors. The illustrations are simple yet capture the text in a real manner. The colors blend well together.

I enjoyed reading this book. It was cute how Biscuit (a puppy) found a little duckling that was lost. Biscuit and his owner returned the duckling to it's parents in the pond. I liked how the story provided words that could be sound effects. "Woof and Quack." The reader as well as the children can

make the sounds and learn them.

Biscuit is a little dog who is out walking with his owner. He is exploring the world around him, when he stumbles upon a baby duck. Biscuit and his owner take the baby duck back to his family in the pond, but when they start the leave, the baby duck follows them.
The illustrations in this book are

very cute and appealing to children. The story line is not very deep, but children att this age are so excited to be able to read the words so it still serves a purpose. I would use this books for those children who are recognizing sight words and are able to sound out decodable words.

How can you fail when you have a puppy helping a lost duckling find its family. You have to love the part when the wet puppy shakes itself dry all over the child! Appropriately cute and well illustrated for a young reader. "Biscuit" is a tough word on its own but this story allows it to become

recognizable in context.

Biscuit is the first book I read all the way through by myself when I was a child so the series holds close to my heart. This book is about biscuits finding of a new duckling who he becomes friends with. The duckling comes along with biscuit but when they go to the park the duckling joins a family

of other ducklings and returns to where its meant to be. The book is illustrated very simply and works well for young children. The vocabulary is also simple yet introduces new words.

Biscuit and the little girl find a baby duckling.


That's my dog protesting that this is a sad story about a dog who failed to secure a tasty snack.
