Clifford Collection For Old Fans and Future Fans.
Reviewed in the United States on July 5, 2017
I remember when Clifford first became a children's favorite book, then years later Clifford was my son's very favorite! Now I've been buying them for my grandchildren. It was exciting to find this collection of books that I read years ago, now purchased for my grandson along with a small, plush Clifford! My grandson has a severe visual impairment so I try to find books for him that are not only exciting but have large, colorfull illustrations that help to tell the story. Clifford books may not be as exciting as pirates to read or listen to but if I remember correctly they usually have a problem that Clifford solves. These stories were written in a time of values that were important to live by and neighbors in need of help only had to ask. The illustrations are outlined in black, so that helps my grandson to focus, I think he'll enjoy this book, I just hope he doesn't want his mom and dad to read start to finish in a single sitting! These books are great for prereaders age 4/5 up to self readers ages 8/9.
This was a great purchase and I highly recommend for old Clifford fans and those who are future Clifford fans. Toss in a stuffed plush Clifford too, you never know when someone might need a cuddle. Norman Bridwell made a lasting contribution to children's literature, I hope future generations get to know and enjoy Clifford the way he has been enjoyed for the last 50 years.
