suprised me by argueing that Biscuit is brown and not yellow as the book states. This book is well used and a favorite in my house and will remain an important part of my collection.

Very cute and simple early reader. Gets a bit repetitive, but it's the best of the Biscuit books, and little ones love it.

Biscuit is a cute little book for students learning to read. It is about a dog and getting him ready for bed. This book is also part of a series.

Biscuit is a puppy who comes to a new owner who is a little girl. She tries to put him down for the night, but he keeps needing things, such as: a drink of water, a hug, a story, etc. He finally ends up sleeping at the end of the little girl's bed instead of in his own bed.

Biscuit is an adorable dog who does not want to go to bed! This book takes children through all the other activities biscuit would rather do than go to bed
LibraryThing member tjsjohanna
Very cute illustrations and simple enough that my kids were able to begin reading it themselves after just a few repetitions.

It’s time for Biscuit to go to bed, but he doesn’t want to. Biscuit asks for one thing after another, and finally falls asleep on some blanket trailing off of his little girl’s bed.

This book uses simple repetive words that the reader can learn to recognize. It is a story of biscuit, a little dog. This is the story of his bedtime routine. He want a drink, has to go to the bathroom, wants a story, wants to be tucked in, etc. These are all thingsthat the young reader can relate

This is a great starter book with simple sentences for those students just starting out. It would be great for kindergarten or 1st grade readers.
LibraryThing member Shardy2
I really liked this book. I liked this book because it focuses on particular vocabulary which pushes students to be independent readers and has helpful illustrations. The book focuses on the words: Biscuit, woof and time for bed. With repetition of the sentences "Woof, Woof!" and "Time for bed

Biscuit" the reader begins to recognize those words and add those words to their vocabulary. The illustrations in the book were helpful to the reader because if they come across a word they are not familiar with, the pictures can help the reader try and figure out what the word may be. For example, on the first page there is a picture of Biscuit and the sentence says, "Biscuit is yellow". The reader can use the illustrations and context clues to create meaning of the word. The main message of the story is repetition on the words woof, Biscuit and time for bed, which is meant to push students to become more of an independent reader.

Woof! Woof! It's time for bed, but Biscuit wants to have a snack, and play, and hear stories. Will he ever go to sleep?
LibraryThing member dmarie8
It's bedtime for the little yellow puppy named Biscuit, but all he wants to do is play. He keeps requesting one more thing (blanket, doll, hugs and kisses), and finally goes to sleep. "Biscuit" is ideal for emergent readers in Pre-K through 1st grade. Children at this age and grade level will be

able to understand the simple concept and storyline. The book is very short, and each page has no more than three sentences. The text is in large print, and the words are easy for emergent readers to recognize. The repetition and sentence pattern make the book perfect for beginning readers.

Biscuit is an adorable little puppy, but he is also headstrong and contrary, especially when it comes to all his bedtime demands. Humorous for kids and all too relatable for every parent who has ever tried putting a toddler to bed.
