Perfect book for 2-3 year olds!
Reviewed in the United States on April 2, 2014
My almost 2-year-old son LOVES dogs and has recently been interested in the Clifford show on PBS...we got him this book and he absolutely loves it! It's a great board book for dog or Clifford-lovers! It has 28 pages (14 pages to turn), the pages are nice and heavy so they cannot be torn, and the sentences on each page are short and simple.
The story goes: I'm Emily Elizabeth, and I have a dog. My dog is a big red dog. Other kids I know have dogs too. Some are big dogs. And some are red dogs. But I have the biggest, reddest dog on our street. This is my dog Clifford. We have fun together. We play games. I throw a stick and he brings it back to me. He makes mistakes sometimes. We play hide-and-seek. I'm a good hide-and-seek player. I can find Clifford, no matter where he hides. We play camping out, and I don't need a tent. He can do tricks too. He can sit up and beg. Oh, I know he's not perfect. He has some bad habits. He runs after cars. He catches some of them. He runs after cats too. We don't go to the zoo any more. He digs up flowers. Clifford loves to chew shoes. It's not easy to keep Clifford. He eats and drinks a lot. His house was a problem, too. But he's a very good watchdog. The mean boys don't come around any more. One day I gave Clifford a bath. And I combed his hair, and took him to the dog show. I'd like to say that Clifford won first prize. But he didn't. I don't care. You can keep all your small dogs. You can keep all your black, white, brown, and spotted dogs. I'll keep Clifford...Wouldn't you?
