This is going to be a book review on a children's book titled "Biscuit and the New Baby".


This is a book review about a children's book titled "Biscuit and the New Baby" written by Alyssa Satin Capucilli. This is a book that is about a small puppy that wants to meet the new baby and the older children keeps telling Biscuit to be quiet. The puppy keeps bringing various items so that maybe he can finally meet the newcomer.

This is a very good children's book for teachers and parents to read to their young and older toddlers as well as preschoolers when families are expecting new siblings. The teachers could teach skills in listening with various sounds that could have been in the book. The teacher could could point to objects in the book and have the children name those objects and the teacher could even have the children go on a small scavenger hunt finding the objects in the book that could be found in the classroom.

"Biscuit and the New Baby" could also be used to teach social skills to this age group, for example the older child keeps reminding the puppy to be quiet for a while so the new baby can sleep and to be respectful of others even though the main character is a puppy. This is also a children's book that has simple sentences so that new readers can start to read by themselves and to maybe even read to their parents.
