In this book readers-listners have two special puppies to watch and follow. Biscuits much bigger friend Sam. Very simple read for beginning readers or bring smiles to toddlers.
Edward Creter
Biscuit is small yet has big shoes for his paws to fill, so when a big dog needs help catching a ball, Biscuit is up to the challenge. A cute and heart-filled little gem for kids.

This is another fun book in the Biscuit series by Alyssa Satin Capucilli and Pat Schories. These books are short, with simple and repetitive narratives and the illustrations are adorable. Our youngest loves that she can read these stories all by herself. She read this one to a dog at our local library (during a read-to-the-dog program.)
Good, but not one of C's favorites
We got this from the library. My son loves the Biscuit books, and he picked this out himself. This is the first book he wanted to read over and over and over again. (And, yes, that is finishing the book and starting over right away.) He LOVES this particular book. He relates to the pictures, saying "uh-oh" when Biscuit's toy is on the ground instead of in his mouth, among other things.

This is a great book for kids who love dogs.

This is another winner for the young reader who loves dogs. Simple words that help kids form sentences. My son loved that the big dog was a friend to biscuit. He tried really hard to do what the big dog did but soon realized that he can only do what little dogs can do.

I LOVE the Biscuit books! They are sweet and soft and lovely to read. The beginning reader Biscuit books are wonderful as well - much better than half the vapid nonsense they have out there for kiddos learning to read. Barbie and My Little Pony come to mind...

Sam is Biscuit's newest friend and they say opposites attract and it is true. Whereas Biscuit is small - Sam is big. As Biscuit is shy Sam is courageous. But Biscuit helps Sam realize that small puppies can be great in their own way too!

Mommy's review from 11/10/09 -

Another Biscuit book that Julia adores! Alyssa Satin Capucilli hit the jackpot with these books IMO, I honestly don't see how any toddler, boy or girl, could not fall in love with all the Biscuit books!
It's funny and kind of sad because in the middle and beginning Sam, his friend, was doing stuff better than him and at very end he couldn't jump over the fence. But biscuit went under the fence because he was little.

This book is about a dog who finds a friend that is bigger than he is. He likes to play with his friend. This book is age aprropriate for all ages. A good book to teach basic reading skills for beginners.
Biscuit becomes friends with a much larger dog. The books shows a day in the life of Biscuit and his friend. It is a very easy read. I would recommend this for kids in kindergarten or first grade.

Everyone wants to be the big dog, the cheese, the grown-up, but there be benefits to tinies too, yo.

J: "This book was a good book but it was a little hard with the big dog's woofs."
Sally Bruesewitz
This is a great book for young readers. It follows the young puppy Biscuit while he befriends a older dog. It depicts what would happen in a day if you had a real puppy to follow around.
Felicity The Magnificent
Biscuit is smaller than his friend. Biscuit's not grown yet. Sam is grown. You have to grow to be big. It's good to have big friends or little friends. - Felicity
The Biscuit books are familiar to my son and so he is quite excited to read them. No more than two sentences a page - so it doesn't scare him off.
Pamela Cockerell
a useful book with younger students. shows how no matter how old, young, big, or small everyone excels at something
This one is my favorite "Biscuit" books! Super cute how the little pup wants to be like his big friend.
Maybe when I'm just learning to read Biscuits books will be more interesting to me.
This book was a good book but it was a little hard with the big dog's woofs.
