PreSchool-Grade 1-This story by Alyssa Capucilli (HarperCollins, 2001) about the appealing little puppy, Biscuit, uses simple language to tell of his adventures following his mistress to school. Sadly, dogs are not supposed to go to school, but that doesn't deter this impish fellow. Chaos ensues, but of course all ends well. Each page features one or two simple sentences. In addition, most of the words are one-syllable words appropriate for beginning readers, such as "dog," "woof," and "wants." The narrator, Andrea Kessler, begins by introducing the story and directing readers to turn to the first page, describing the picture on that page. Her voice is clear and easy to understand. The watercolor illustrations also help to tell the story, and early readers will find them useful in discerning text. Bright music and background sound effects add a nice touch to the story. The page-turning sound is clear and easy to detect. On side two, the story is told uninterrupted. The use of repetitive text makes this a perfect choice for new readers. A useful addition for public and school libraries.
