‘Dog Biscuit’ Book Review

Dog Biscuit by Helen CooperToday a patron returned a sweet little dog book to the library. A sucker for books that stare dogs, I immediately found myself reading Dog Biscuit by Helen Cooper. I am happy to say that I did.

Dog Biscuit is a story about a little girl who eats a dog treat. Upon being caught, the owner of the dog tells the little girl that she will surely turn into a dog. The rest of the story follows the little girl as she thinks she is turning into a dog. In the end, the little girl realizes that the dog owner was joking but that she had probably better not eat anymore dog treats. At the end of the book is a recipe for “human treats.”

My favorite part about Dog Biscuit is that the story encourages children to use their imaginations. With the help of a caregiver, a young reader can make some human treats and then pretend to turn into a dog. This book engages the imagination and encourages creative play.

The Verdict: Dog Biscuit is a must-read for any child who loves dogs and playing make-believe.
