Biscuit Wants to Play (I Can Read! My First: Shared Reading)

For fans of Clifford and Spot, welcome everybody's favorite little yellow puppy, Biscuit, in an I Can Read adventure!

When Biscuit meets two little kittens, he wants to be friends. He wants to play ball and run around. But the kittens are having too much fun with their own games to play with him. Biscuit doesn't give up, though, and soon the kittens find out what a good friend he can be.

Biscuit Wants to Play, a My First I Can Read book, is carefully crafted using basic language, word repetition, sight words, and sweet illustrations--which means it's perfect for shared reading with emergent readers.

K-Gr 1-Another easy-to-read adventure about a fuzzy brown pup. When Biscuit meets two kittens, he wants to play with them, but the kittens are more interested in exploring on their own. However, when they chase a butterfly up a tree and become stuck on a branch, it is Biscuit's bark that results in a rescue. The large typeface, basic vocabulary, short sentences, and simple plot are right on target for beginning readers. The soft watercolor illustrations, which feature a farm setting and a cast of appealing characters, help to convey the action of the text. A good choice for this pup's fans and for those ready to take the very first steps toward reading.-Wendy S.
