“Biscuit’s Pet & Play Easter” is a fun touch-and-feel holiday board book.  Biscuit the puppy is on an Easter egg hunt and along the way to finding the eggs he encounters a fuzzy chick, a grassy garden, a silky butterfly and a bunny.

Cayden:  “We went on an Easter egg hunt the other day!”

Max:  “Eggs!”

Max:  On the page with the chick:   “Beep! Beep!”

Cayden:  “No Max- it is Peep! Peep!”

Max:  “Peep! Peep!”

Cayden:  “I like the page with the glittery eggs because they are shiny and sparkly!”

Mom:  “What is your favorite page Max?”

Max:  Points to the first page:  “Chick”

Mom:  “Why is that your favorite?”

Max:  “Soft”

We have other Biscuit books so my children were already familiar with the character of Biscuit and enjoy sharing in his adventures.  Max loves to copy Biscuit saying “Woof! Woof!” on every page.  Both children really enjoy touch-and-feel books and this one was especially nice with a lot of variety in textures.  “Biscuit’s Pet & Play Easter” is a cute, playful book to help put you into the spirit of the Easter season.
