Biscuit Wants to Play is a book about a curious young puppy with a big heart. He discovers some kittens and only wants to play with them. At first, they are not in a hurry to play with Biscuit, but once the kittens get into trouble Biscuit comes to their rescue. The illustrations really help the reader connect with the innocence of Biscuit just wanting to play with the kittens.

This book puts into perspective that even though cats and dogs are not supposed to like each other they can get along. T

Personal Reaction- This book is really cute and I think that children who are dog lovers and cat lovers will really enjoy this book. This book shows the personalities of dogs and cats, which makes it really fun and enjoyable to read. This is a very good beginning to read book, because of its big fount and simple language.

Read aloud- This book does not have any beneficial value to read it aloud because it lacks a strong storyline.

Independent reading. This is a very good beginning to read book for

I don't know what it is about these books. They are short, simple stories for beginning readers with adorable illustrations, but they make me twitch. I think it's the fact that there's a "Meow" or a "Woof" on every page. It just irritates me, but our girls seem to like it. We read these books together and I encourage them to read as much as possible.

Biscuit is back and in this book he is eager to make friends with the two new kittens!

At first the kittens really don't want to play with him but after Biscuit helps rescue them from a tall tree, they soon become best pals!

A sweet story to help little ones realize it may take time to make a friend but it definitely worth it.

Easy reader. Cute book about a dog named Biscuit. In this book Biscuit wants to play with the kittens. They play a variety of ways. My kindergartner loved the simple and playful story full of easy sight words.

My boys like stories about animals, so Biscuit is a hit with them! They are short enough and easy enough to read that it doesn't get too boring for them to read. They love the animal sounds such as the woof, woof or meow on the pages. They had to repeat right after me!

William saw the picture of this book at the back of several of his other Biscuit books. I just couldn't find it at the library, so I bought it for him. Exactly what you would expect for Biscuit. Simple text, cute pictures, little peak in the plot near the end.

great childrens book, fun to just read for enjoyment. It definitly is an easy read for early elementary school students. There are plenty of sight words so they can read the book themselves with minimal help. This is more like a great starter book.

This is a "My First I Can Read Book" repetitive words per pages and easy small sentences per page. Biscuit is an adventurous puppy. In this book he becomes friends with two kittens.
Sarah Adamson
Another fun early reader book. The repetitive nature of the woof and meow words actually got my 4 year old to read them by herself tonight so this book gets an extra star for that!
Laura Elizabeth
Again, I recommend this for anyone with small children learning to read. My niece and nephew love this and all the Biscuit stories.

The main character is Biscuit.
The problem of the story is when the kittens get stuck in the tree.
At the end, Biscuit wants to play with the kittens and they want to play with him too.
