Review by Booklist Review
Gr. K-1. Part of the My First I Can Read Book series, this very simple book introduces a puppy named Biscuit, who is small and yellow and makes his needs known by barking, "Woof! Woof!" At least his young owner thinks she can interpret his barks, but sometimes Biscuit has his own ideas. This does just what it's supposed to--it offers an appealing story with a minimum of words that will encourage new readers. The very simple, good-size pictures depict the heart of the action. A sweet entry to reading. (Reviewed Aug. 1996)0060261978Ilene Cooper

Review by School Library Journal Review
PreS-Gr 2Young readers will be sympathetic to this endearing puppy's nighttime routine: wanting a snack, a drink, a hug and a kiss; hearing a story; getting his blanket and doll; and being tucked in. In fact, just like young audiences, Biscuit wants some of these rituals performed twice. This bedtime drama is simplified by clear, large pictures, oodles of contextual clues, simple sentence structure, and repetitive words and phrases. An appealing choice for just-beginning readers.Gale W. Sherman, Pocatello Public Library, ID (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.

Review by Horn Book Review
In a simple, repetitive story line, a puppy imitates a small child in the familiar bedtime drama of attempting to avoid 'lights out.' The minimal vocabulary ('Woof!' figures largely) and universally appealing subject make it a good choice for youngsters just beginning to read. From HORN BOOK 1996, (c) Copyright 2010.
