Why We Love It
The very best books for beginning readers provide simple repetitive language and plenty of pictures that offer clues for figuring out unknown words. Biscuit is the first in a series of short, simple stories about a lovable puppy. In this story, a little girl is attempting to get her new puppy to go to sleep. Biscuit, the puppy, is reluctant. The story wraps up in a humorous and realistic way and readers will enjoy the new perspective on bedtime rituals.
- Once your child has read the story and is familiar with the words, do a shared reading where you each read a page. Model how to use expression.
- Instead of reading the “Woof, woof” part as a spoken word, encourage your child substitute a bark instead.
