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?

Biscuit  Jun 12, 2006
Cute illustrations show Biscuit's young owner taking care of him as she tries to put him to bed. The text is simple and beginning readers will pick up the simple words easily, with the illustrations a big help when cues are needed.

A super bedtime book, especially for kids who have something in common with Biscuit - they want a drink, a snack, a hug, one more kiss... will they NEVER go to sleep?!? Of course they will, because just like Biscuit, sooner or later, they're just plain tired!
Biscuit  Dec 19, 2005
I can remember reading this book all the time when I was younger! I just loved it. It made me want a puppy that was just like the one in the story. Its a good book because the words in it are big and easy to read, and because it teaches responsibility because it shows the girl in the story feeding him and taking care of him.
I gave this book 5 stars.

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 Fan  Aug 18, 2005
Have always enjoyed Biscuit stories, this one is not a disappointment. The binding on the book itself is soft, the pages cannot be turned easily which is frustrating for toddlers.
This book is good both for beginning readers and toddlers.  Apr 4, 2005
Very simple, very repetitive (This is Biscuit. Biscuit is small. Biscuit is yellow. Every page includes the word Biscuit, so you either memorize the spelling or the meaning, or both). Perfect for kids in either age range. The only problem with the repetitiveness is that, well, it is repetitive. And without a rhyme or rhythm to hold you through, you might get bored reading it. So I wouldn't advise buying it unless you know you can sit through reading it again and again (or think your kid won't want to read it again and again, though that defeats the purpose of book buying)
