A brown puppy named Biscuit is introduced to Nibbles, the classroom pet.  Biscuit “woofs” everytime Nibbles “hops” and they have  fun together until Nibbles gets lost. Where can Nibbles be hiding? Biscuit and a little girl search for Nibbles, only to find him laying in Biscut’s bed. This “My First Reading” is designed for children who are just starting to learn how to read, but the language is simple enough for very young children to understand. The words consist of “sight words,” which young children are familiar with. This easy reading book is perfect for parents to read to their children and help them understand simple words. This book would help children transition from board books to EZ reading books.  (EZ Readers 3-5). Author website can be found at Illustrator website can be found at
