Review
  • Books for Youth, Easy Reading: Gr. 1. Biscuit, the adorable little tan puppy, finds something under the house. Is it a ball? A bone? No, it's a baby duckling that Biscuit's owner takes back to the pond. The duckling is reunited with its parents and siblings but still wants to follow its new friend Biscuit. Like the previous book, Biscuit (1996), this features short, very simple sentences and nice large shapes set against expanses of white space. Format and content make this just right as a My First I Can Read Book. ((Reviewed May 1, 1997)) -- Ilene Cooper
  • PreS-Gr 1--Capucilli and Schories team up again for another beginning reader featuring Biscuit the puppy. Here, the dog and his young owner find a duckling and reunite it with its family in the pond. Colorful and appealing watercolor illustrations, surrounded by ample white space, support the text. Biscuit's face is filled with new-puppy curiosity and his tail seems to be constantly wagging. Short, simple sentences in large-sized print contribute to the readability. Plenty of "quacks" and "woofs" encourage expressive telling aloud. Sure to be a popular choice.--Sharon R. Pearce, San Antonio Public Library, TX
  • A bland throwback to another era in the My First I Can Read series. Biscuit (Biscuit, 1996, not reviewed, etc.) finds a duckling who has lost its parents. With the help of his girl owner, Biscuit reunites duckling and parents, with a dip in the drink and plenty of woofing and quacking to cement the friendship. Not much happens: The restricted vocabulary puts this book in a league with Dick and Jane's leaden exploits, and while the illustrations are sweet, they don't pack much oomph. (Kirkus Reviews, April 15, 1997)
