Biscuit's Valentine's Day

February 8, 2012

By: Carisa Kluver

The Digital Media Diet

A short but very sweet puppy tale ...

This is an adorable book based on a print series popular over the last decade. Little Biscuit is a cute puppy who helps his little girl deliver valentine's to their friends and family one snowy February day. From cards & cookies to ribbon for the cat, this duo shows the spirit of giving. This app is beautifully illustrated with light animations that are triggered by tapping the images.

Text highlights as narrated and has simple sentence structure perfect for young learner readers. There is also a selection of extras including coloring pages, memory game, sticker book and puzzles. These extras are simple but well made, making this otherwise very short title full of fun for young readers.

Children will also love the hidden bones on almost every page for the challenge to find them all for Biscuit. If the reader finds all 20 hidden bones, they get a congratulatory message at the end of the story. My child really enjoyed this additional challenge within the pages of this book, although it does distract a bit from the story.

Overall, this is a delightful holiday title, perfect for reading and playing as a Valentine's Day treat. Little biscuit is a cute character in this lovingly illustrated series. These books are well-written and have a reading level perfect for Kindergarten through 2nd grade. Toddlers and preschoolers will also enjoy this title with narration. Recommended.

All reviews are of the app, not the platform/device. Based originally on iPad versions. Minor technical details may vary.
