It is time for Biscuit, the little yellow puppy, to go to bed. Just like everyone else, Biscuit has his nighttime routine and he likes it when his little girl remembers every part of it. Biscuit likes to have a snack, a drink, to have a story read to him, to be given a hug and a kiss, and one mustn't forget that he also needs to have his blanket and his doll to cuddle up with.

Of course doing all this doesn't guarantee that Biscuit will actually go to sleep!

Young dog lovers will greatly enjoy this first book in the Biscuit series and will quickly identify with the little dog who doesn't want to go to bed except when he is ready to do so. This is one of the books in the My first I can Read series. The books in this collection give young children the tools they need to begin reading by themselves.
