Shows how Emily cares and takes and care of her beloved dog, Clifford. It can show kids how dogs are not easy to take care of as they seem. ( )

This picture book is about Emily Elizabeth's dog, Clifford. Emily Elizabeth uses examples of different kinds of dogs throughout the book. She talks about how Clifford is as a dog and how hard it is to have such an enormous dog compared to others who have regular size dogs. The illustrations in the book are colorful and bright. The drawings are sketchy but with the bold colors, the characters pop out to the readers. The text is a small black print and there are not many words on the pages. This book can be great for students who really like dogs. A teacher can use this book for a lesson about animals, when they are specifically focusing on dogs because it tells in the book what kind of dogs are there; small, large, red, blue, black, etc. ( )

This book was always one of my favorite books and television shows to read and watch in my elementary school. The language was so easy to understand. The way I read this book was through an audio book. I wanted to try the listening aspect of the book and fell in love with it. The plot of the story with talking dogs that have adventures can open the minds of young readers by gaining their attention through unrealistic things. I am absolutely in love with the illustrations in this book. Each has a solid bold color to teach the children who read the book understand what is going on in the plot through only looking at the pictures. It was not jumbled or to chaotic for the children to look at. The bigger picture of this book is for the educational and entertainment purposes. The educational part teaches life lesson in an appropriate way. In the book I read, Clifford was teaching one of the other dogs named Cleo how to say please and thank you, which is definitely something children at the elementary age are trying to learn.

I love this book for many reasons. I may be biased but Clifford was one of my favorite characters. I would even watch the tv show! the language is very clear and engaging. The story is very age appropriate as well. The illustrations add to the text and draw children in. The characters are likeable as well.

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 059044297X, Paperback)

Emily Elizabeth has a big red dog--the biggest, reddest dog on her street, and his name is Clifford. How big is he? He's so big that when he runs after cars, he catches them in his mouth, and his doghouse is bigger than Emily Elizabeth's house. Needless to say, he makes an excellent watchdog. Children love the idea of the things you could do and the fun you could have with a giant dog, and Norman Bridwell's delightful, Clifford-proof board-book edition will not disappoint. (Baby to preschool)
