This is a beautiful Biscuit book! We love our Level My First Biscuit books, they are probably the first ones we fell in love with. Every single illustration in this book is lovely and full of pastel and vibrant spring colors. It's a perfect read for just starting with things to bloom. It is also fun, with the typical Woof Woof Biscuit conversation that sent both of my girls into echoes and giggles. The other fun thing about this one is all the birds through out. Plenty to provide counting practi ...more

Absolutely my four year old's favorite of the Biscuit series! We have dogs who dig in the garden, knock over bags of bird food, and demand immediate attention--just like Biscuit! We love ending the day reading about Biscuit's adventures! Even more enjoyable-she is now able to identify some of the words!

Oh my son loved it. He just stared at the colors and especially the birds. He loves the noises of Biscuit and all his friends, the tweets in this one made him smile. Great book for toddlers I think.

This book is a part of the I Can Read collection which is a series of transitional books. Transitional books are great for early readers or children with no reading experience because the text is simple and there are very few words to a page with large, basic illustrations. For each exciting thing the girl points out in the garden, Biscuit answers with a “Woof! Woof!” Once birds are introduced, there’s a cacophony of tweets to add to the woofs. Emergent readers will have fun with these sound wor ...more

Biscuit and his little girl are working in the garden. They see several critters, and when Biscuit "helps" with the bird seed, they see lots of birds.

Ahh, Biscuit, what a very believable puppy you are. Bird lovers should enjoy the results of his mess. Gardeners will likely cringe. Nice, simple text for beginning readers.

I absolutely love the Biscuit series for young children, I think these books are absolutely adorable, and have the cutest stories and illustrations. The Biscuit series is part of an "I Can Read" collection of books, which obviously is intended to help children read and develop their reading skills. The language is very, very simple, and the sentences are extremely short, offering children a chance to read with a great feeling of ease. These books are good for children ages 4-7, and keeps them in ...more

BISCUIT IN THE GARDEN is a sweet little book at the late Kindergarten Reading Level.

It's time to spend some time in the garden and Biscuit discovers a butterfly, a worm, birds and birdseed. I wish that the artwork showed the girl doing gardening activities but it doesn't. Instead it's more about feeding the birds and what's nice is that some of them are accurately portrayed so that you can name them. There's a Cardinal, Chickadee, and Blue Jay you can point out. Plus a B

Biscuit is a new character to me, but he must be popular with my neighbor since I found several books about Biscuit in the library bag. The simple, repetitive text is perfect for beginning readers to join in with the reading. The bright illustrations are delightful. Biscuit is so cute, it’s hard to stay mad even when he gets into the birdseed and makes a mess in the garden. This book invites discovery and surprise as Biscuit explores flowers and bugs and birds in the garden. The next step will b ...more

Biscuit is one of the literary world's cutest puppies!

In this adventure his loving owner teaches him about all the wonderful plants and flowers that can be found in a garden!

And of course, being Biscuit, he always has time to make new friend. Of course, he gets into some mischief, by getting into the bird seed which in turn, brings lots of new friends for him to meet!

I have been reading this series of books to more than 15 different little ones in my care and I still enjoy reading them every tim

Biscuit's helping out in the garden and finds a butterfly, worm, and a bird. She finds out that bird seed is a tasty treat and more and more birds visit the garden.

I LOVE the picture of Biscuit after she pulls her head out of the bird seed bag and seeds are stuck to her nose. So cute! Most Biscuit books are just okay for me, but I think this one will be of use to preschool and daycare teachers working on spring or gardening units in their classrooms.

When asked why five stars, I was given the answer "because it's the best!" Well, we do enjoy the Biscuit series. This is a cute one involving seeing things in the garden, and an "accident" (mischievous/inquisitive puppy) with the bird seed. Quick and easy reader, with repetition and simple words and concepts.

Join Biscuit as he explores through the garden with friends! As he explores he sees many exciting features such as pretty flowers and bugs! This easy to follow text offer children to use their prior knowledge skills as they flip through the pages and see some of the many things that they would see in real life gardens.

Cute illustrations, easy-to-read sentences, and a simple plot all combine to make this a good book for a child to try and read on their own. It will be a bit of a bore for the adult reading along with them, but there are worse things to be suffered for the sake of a child's education.

This book is about a puppy who explores a garden with friends. This book would be great to incorporate when learning about flowers, gardens, and bugs. With this, students are able to apply their prior knowledge skills and apply the information to real life.
