1. Summary - This book is about a dog named Biscuit and how owner, a little girl, is trying to put him to bed but much like a little kid, first he needs a hug and kiss, then a snack and drink and then he needs one more kiss and hug. Finally the owner decides to go to bed where Biscuit curls up next to her bed and sleeps peacefully.

2. Personal Reaction - I thought this book was cute and age appropriate for a beginning reader and that a child could relate to it. I would have this book in my classroom library.

3. Extension Ideas -
1. I could use this book in my classroom for call backs, to see if the children can remember the order of events
2. I could use this book in my classroom as supplemental work once we learned a word to familiarize the words with the students
3. I could use this book in my classroom to point out illustrations to the students and get their feed back on what they think will happen based on the picture.

BISCUIT, the first book in this popular series, is at the mid-year First Grade reading level. There are 133 words.

The story is very cute and the artwork very kid-friendly and appealing. Here's some sample text from two pages:

Time for bed, Biscuit!
Woof, woof!
Biscuit wants a snack.

Time for bed, Biscuit!
Woof, woof!
Biscuit wants a drink.

The list of requests might sound familiar to moms and dads. But instead of children asking for water, it's Biscuit who wants the light on, or who needs a kiss.

Besides being a very nice practice reader, this book can serve as a Good Night story.
