Biscuit's Birthday

March 25, 2012

By: Carisa Kluver

The Digital Media Diet

The perpetual puppy has a birthday ...

This is an adorable book based on a print 'early reader' series, popular over the last decade. In this title, little Biscuit is having a birthday. Thankfully turning a year older doesn't have to mean growing up for this perpetual puppy! His mistress has planned a party, inviting his cat & dog friends to enjoy treats, play games and open presents.

Text highlights as narrated in this short title perfect for young learner readers. Simple, but polished animations and interactivity highlight story elements nicely. There is also a selection of extras including coloring pages, memory game, sticker book and puzzles. These extras are basic but well made, making this otherwise short title full of fun for young readers.

Children will especially enjoy the hidden bones on almost every page for the challenge to find them all for Biscuit. If the reader finds all 14 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 can distract a bit from the story.

Overall, this is an adorable storybook app. Little biscuit and friends are sweet characters in this lovingly illustrated series. These books are well-written, with 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.

Story Synopsis - Biscuit's Birthday

Today is little Biscuit's birthday! There's a surprise at the door ... Puddles and Daisy (a dog & cat) have come for a party. There are balloons ... but the cat plays with the string and they get loose. Now it's time for treats and for Biscuit to make a wish. Soon presents are opened, with a new collar, bone and, of course, a new box of dog biscuits.
