Summary

Summary

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

Woof, woof! Arf, arf! There's a new pup in town.

When Biscuit finds a little pup in the park, he wants the pup to play with him. But the little pup won't come over to look at Biscuit's ball or to chew on a bone. In fact, he won't come out of his cozy hideaway at all! Is the little pup lost? How will Biscuit get the little pup to come out? Join Biscuit as he meets a new friend.

Biscuit and the Little Pup, 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.

Horn Book Review

Biscuit the dog finds a shy puppy in a playhouse at the park. Biscuit and his owner try to entice the pup to play, but it won't come out until Biscuit hides. The two dogs then engage in a game of hide-and-seek. Uncomplicated illustrations expand this very slight story that uses limited vocabulary ("Arf! Arf! Arf! Arf! Woof, woof!"). (c) Copyright 2010.
