118. “Biscuit and the Lost Teddy Bear” by Alyssa Satin Capucilli


Today has been a very B-oriented day for me and Victor. As we were eating Breakfast, we noticed that we were actually surrounded by lots of things that begin with this second letter of the Alphabet. We were munching on toasted Bread with Butter and sliced Banana, we were sitting on Brown chairs at the Black table, we were looking at Victor’s Blue Bike and talking about taking a Bubbly Bath and reading Books later on.  And then, by the end of the day we have received a package from Victor’s grandma. Do you want to know what was in the Box? Three Books about a playful puppy named Biscuit. (I have already introduced this  cute “I Can Read” series, when I told you how Biscuit convinced my son to try a hot-dog.) And so, our B-fun has continued as we joined the puppy on his little adventures. “Biscuit and the Lost Teddy Bear”, where Biscuit helps a little boy to get reunited with his lost Teddy, is a real B-word fountain. Bird, Butterfly, Bear, Boy, Boxes… We had lots of fun expanding our B-list with Biscuit.

If your child starts to notice letters everywhere (an egg is an “O”, a pen is “I”, a ripped bag handle is an “U”…) and begins to understand the concept of phonics, the Biscuit’s stories are a perfect practice tool:  very engaging ( including the pictures by Pat Schories), simple and fun.
