Biscuit learns to fetch a ball in this simple reader. I wish the words "Woof, woof" had been put in italics or somehow differentiated from the other text because otherwise it appears as if Biscuit's owner is saying, "Woof, woof," along with everything else she tells Biscuit. Maybe she is?

My 13 month old loves this series. She laughs, giggles, and becomes so engaged in the illustrations and the story.
out of the mouth of the reader herself, "These books are boring"
we prefer Dick and Jane

The Biscuit books aren't that fun for me to read, really. (I hate having to go 'Woof! Woof!' at the end of every page) But my 1 year old loves them. There's a cute dog and a ball and some woofing and not too many words on a page. The illustrations are a nice balance of simplicity and detail. Just enough extra things on the page to point to/name but not so much that she zones out.
First biscuits owner finds biscuits ball then she says here biscuit look what I have then biscuit says woof woof then his owner throws the ball then biscuit rolls over on his dog toy and the last time biscuit's owner throws the ball it lands in the mud then biscuit fetches the ball and runs into the mud to get it and he gets the ball and runs out of the mud to his owner.
This Biscuit reader is great. We often read Olivier Dunrea's Peedie that slides in the mud so being able to see Biscuit slide in the mud in his effort to master his new trick or skill brought out much animation from my daughter. Biscuit brings smiles to us all.

This is the third story included in the Biscuit Storybook Collection and a My First I Can Read! selection.

The books in the Biscuit series are cute and easy for beginners. They are perfect to read aloud with children and help them pick up word patterns. Our girls like them.

This was cute trade instructional book. It was about Bicuit learning how to fetch a ball. Biscuit ends up retrieving the ball but only after it lands in a pile of mud.

A pretty good starter book. My 4 yo picked up words quickly, words repeat but still kept her interest. Looking forward to other books in this "Biscuit" series.
Actually had the author read this one to us and showed us how she developed it...

A book that teaches patience and perseverance.
