I would like to work in a library that allows puppies, please.

Disclaimer: I would like to not be responsible for cleaning up after the puppies, please. Just snuggling them.

Now, I don't know about anyone else, but my children LOVE the library; however, I can absolutely say with certainty that they would love it even more if there was a puppy there to play with.

"Biscuit Love the Library" is completely adorable, with a tale about children being able to take there pets to the Library so that they can read to them their favorite stories. This little puppy tend to find himself in some sticky situations, but everything always seems to work out for the best in the end.

Well, let's see...

We all love Biscuit!!!!

We all love the library and go at least once a week!!

We all really liked how Biscuit found books about himself to read!!

We all want to get a puppy like Biscuit!

Such a sweet story; and a very clever way for your little ones to learn about all the great books, magazines, movies, computers, etc. the library has to offer!

Summary: Biscuit goes to the library!

Why I Read This: It appeared on one of my "best of" lists.

Review: I always liked the idea of biscuit because he's an adorable dog that reminds me of my adorable dogs. This was my first time actually reading a biscuit book, and it was pretty good: simple and clear with good illustrations. I'd definitely recommend it.

OK I have to change my mind Biscuit Goes to School, it is no longer my favorite. Biscuit loves the library has taken first place, because we love the library too! And I love the "perfect book" Biscuit finds. Plus it's at the right level for the 6 year old Little Bug to read by herself.

Cute moment(s): My preschooler asks, "Why is Biscuit reading his own book at the library?" ... and then asks it again every time the cover of this book shows up in the illustrations. Since the story never explicitly addresses the paradox, it was fun to work at explaining it to a four-year-old.

This was such a fun and cute book! I think any kiddo reading it would love it. I hope when children read this book it will encourage them to go to their public library. Any child that loves puppies will sure love to read this book. I love that their is a whole series!

Good repetition for first-readers. Not enough substance for older readers; Still good for little ones.

I'm not a big fan of the Biscuit books, but I know children who are!
Biscuit goes to the library with his owner because the library was hosting a 'bring your pet day'. He explored the library before picking out a book about himself.

Simple, clear illustrations that stay in time with the text. Repetitive text and easy to pick up for an early reader.

BISCUIT LOVES THE LIBRARY is at the early First Grade Reading Level. There are 137 words.

"It's Read to a Pet Day!" So girl and Biscuit are off to the library. The library environment is shown as well as other animals that can be pets. It's hard for me not to like this book as it is so Library Friendly.

Besides doing it's service as a primer for newish readers, this book can be used with younger children to show them what to expect when they visit a library. In the artwork

It's Read to a Pet Day at the library, and Biscuit and his girl are attending. Together they explore the children's area, looking at books on topics ranging from bunnies to bears to dinosaurs, listening to the audio books, and playing with the puppets. But when they find a cozy spot to read, surrounded by all the other pets and pet owners, their day is made.

Biscuit Loves the Library is a positive introduction to some of the services offered at libraries, and Biscuit's enthusiasm may help

I thought this book, Biscuit loves the library, was simple and sweet. The book only had a few words or sentences on each page, making this a pretty quick read and simple for new readers. I like that this is a great book for new readers because it shows most aspects of the library and how great they can be. The illustrations were clear, colorful, and straightforward pictures of what a library looks like. I think that incorporating animals into the book makes it even more attractive to children ...more

This is perhaps the cutest of the series to date, because it is so firmly based in reality.
Biscuit is being taken to the library, which is having a "Read to Your Pet" event. Our own library has a program called "Barks and Books," in which kids can read to a dog. It turns out that dogs are really good listeners, and rarely dispute the contents of the book or the style of the story.
In any case, this book is a good primer on what a library can be like, as Biscuit sees his surroundings with the

This is a review done my my little sister Josie. :)

I like that the library in his book has read to a pet day. We are allowed to bring our dog on our bookmobile. The librarians Miss Lydia and Miss Kara give our dog Clyde biscuits on the bookmobile. I think it is funny that in this book biscuit finds his book at the library to read. The words in the book are really simple and I think little kids who are just learning to read will love this book. I liked finding all the pets in the pictures. I like

Another acquisition for the month of present-giving to my daughter that is December.

Biscuit Loves the Library is cute, and will hopefully manage to keep her attention as I use it as a tool to ply her with knowledge. Biscuit should at least keep her amused. He's cute and fluffy.

And meta, too! Keep breaking that fourth wall, Biscuit.

As a beginner readers book, I like the settings that Capucilli chooses in this series. It helps students identify with some of the things that they do in their own life. For example, in this story, Biscuit goes to the library and is able to participate in the many activities that children do today in children's libraries. I would use this story to help students apply text to self.

Biscuit is an adventurous puppy that likes to do everything his little girl does and that includes go to the library. Its bring your pet to the library day and the children all show off their pets but Biscuit is so busy looking for a book to read the Little girl has to run after him. A nice book to show the importance of reading and the library is to children.

"It's "Read to a Pet Day" at the Library. Biscuit discovers that there are puppets, audiobooks,and books about dogs, cats, and dinosaurs. Which book will Biscuit choose? An "I Can Read" (TM) book, perfect for puppy lovers or fans of the Biscuit series."

Cute illustrations got a kick out of the fact that Biscuit is reading a book about himself! Great way to get kids interested in the library and reading! Glad I got the chance to share this story with my nephew.
