Booklist Review

Ages 2^-4. In addition to the picture books that are meant as read-alouds for the youngest child, the Biscuit series offers I Can Read Books aimed at beginning readers. The star is a frisky puppy, who, in this latest adventure is celebrating his first birthday with his dog and cat friends, Puddles and Daisy, and his young owner. There are balloons to chase, presents to open, and delicious birthday treats. Schories' cheerful illustrations capture the festive spirit, and youngsters paging through on their own will find it easy to follow the story. Librarians who find it difficult to sustain a squirmy toddler's interest for a story time will appreciate the simple language, short plot, and colorful pictures this has to offer, while recognizing the very limited appeal for older kids. A good alternative to Eric Hill's Spot series. --Lauren Peterson


School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 1It is Biscuits first birthday and the pups young owner is determined to celebrate in style. Party hats, balloons, dog biscuits shared with friends (another dog and a cat), and an assortment of gifts all enter into this lighthearted story. Colorful two-page spreads bring this adorable canine and others to life. A charming addition to a popular series that young listeners and beginning readers can enjoy.Lisa Smith, Lindenhurst Memorial Library, NY (c) Copyright 2010.
