A little yellow dog wants ever one more thing before he'll go to sleep.

Questions to talk about with your child: 
Why do you think that Biscuit keeps asking for things like snacks, drinks, and extra hugs?
Why does Biscuit go upstairs at the end of the book?
What does Biscuit do when he gets upstairs in the little girl’s room?
Do you sometimes ask for drinks and “one more hug” at bedtime? If so, why?
Fun things to do together: 
Set up bedtime routine cards for your child. Have a card for pajamas, teeth brushing, story, hug, tuck-in time, etc. These can help your child know what to expect at bedtime.
Make coupons for “10 more minutes at bedtime” or “ 1 more hug at bedtime.”
Role play to act out the story with your child. Take turns acting out the parts of Biscuit and the child.
Using your child’s day as a model, work together drawing pictures or making a list of things that Biscuit is likely to do from waking up to going to sleep at night.
