More About Alyssa Satin Capucilli & Pat Schories


Alyssa Satin Capucilli When I was a young girl growing up in Brooklyn, New York, the weekly trip to the public library with my mother and sisters, was much anticipated. I loved the quiet hush of the room, I loved the books on the shelves, I loved the books in my hands. I quickly became an avid reader and vowed to read every book from A to Z! Louisa May Alcott and Beverly Cleary were two of my favorite authors! Although I loved to imagine myself as different characters in books, I never imagined that the authors who created them were real people!

My home was filled with books and book lovers as well. And even though I spent much of my time writing, imagining, and creating stories, songs, poems, and puppet shows, I began focusing on story telling in another way; I began to tell stories through movement and dance, and spent numerous years dancing professionally. I still love to dance, but now I find that I enjoy inventing worlds through words even more.

Nowadays, my home is a small cozy cottage in Hastings on Hudson, New York. It is still filled with books and even more book lovers — my two children, Peter and Laura, my husband, Bill, and of course our lovable chocolate Labrador, Huckleberry! I find that I get many ideas and much inspiration from the long morning walks through the woods that I take with Huckleberry each day. Huckleberry especially loves the snow!

I hope you’ll enjoy reading my books as much as I enjoy writing them!

Alyssa Satin Capucilli currently resides in Hastings-On-Hudson, in the state of New York. Alyssa Satin Capucilli was born in 1957.

Reviews - What do customers think about Biscuit Finds a Friend (special edition) (My First I Can Read)?

My 20 Month Old Loves Biscuit  Jun 2, 2008
I needed to add a filler or two to a recent order with this site so I picked out two Biscuit stories for my 20 month old son who loves books. He took to "Biscuit Finds a Friend" right away and is now a Biscuit fan. The story is very simple and easy for my son to follow along. Be prepared to say "woof, woof" over and over, but it's worth it!
 
kids love this  Apr 21, 2008
kids love listening to this. They learn new words on their own by listening to the tape. If they are having trouble reading, this helps them look and listen to the book. They can follow along.
 
Finally, a primer that is right on the mark! (Biscuit finds a friend)  Dec 15, 2005
My five year old daughter is just beginning to read and I have to tell you that my husband and I have been through a lot of books that claim they are `primers' but which aren't.

Either they use a huge vocabulary, or else they have too many words per page. In one case the entire book was written in the past tense. And while they might be great for a more experienced new reader, they are not good for true beginning/emergent readers; children with just a few weeks under their belts.

In any case, "Biscuit Finds a Friend" does not have any of these problems. You will find text that is simple and uncluttered, with not too many words per page. An example follows for you to judge for yourself:

The little duck is lost.
Woof! Woof!
We will bring the little duck back to the pond.
Woof! Woof!

Here, little duck.
Here is the pond.
Here is your mother and your father.
Quack!

Five Stars. A real book for beginning/emergent readers. The text is simple and just repetitive enough that children are encouraged. The artwork and story line appeal to children whether they are reading or not. Certainly my 3 year old son enjoys this book as well.
 
A great first reader  Aug 26, 2005
My mother, a teacher, gave us some Bisquit books for our 4 year old son. He loved them so much, he has learned to read them in just a couple weeks.

The illustrations are as cute as can be.

The text ranges from simple to moderate for a first reader. I have found the balance between easy to read / appropriately repetitive text and few few places where the rules for sounds change a little to be just right. You can see where your child will try to apply a known rule (e.g., here vs. her) but will fail. You can explain the difference between the words and how to know proper pronunciation. After doing it a few times, he gets not just the words, but the rule. This, of course, requires the parent to be active while the child is reading.

The construction of the book provide plenty of reinforcement for the child and our son always wants to read more.

However, like all things, it is good to get other first readers as well. After a point, children will have memorized the text and will no longer be really 'reading' or stretching themselves.

We have some Bob the Builder, Toy Story, etc. books. However, Bisquit was unknown to us and is preferred by our son.
 
Biscuit Meets the Little Duck  Sep 19, 2003
In this book Biscuit meets a new friend when he finds a small yellow duckling near the house. Friendly puppy that he is, Biscuit soon makes friends but a duckling should be with its parents.

Biscuit helps the little duckling find its family but not without making an impression as the duckling looks like it follows him home at the end.

Another simple and happy story with some of the best illustrations in children's books. My daughter likes to read the "Woof, woof!" parts.
