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?

Colorful. We got red because infants can see the color very well. Good size for travel. Minimal wording. Pages haven’t torn which is nice.

This is not a very strong Clifford book. It would be a good book for a child to practice reading, but that is how it also feels. It doesn't really have a story. It just describes Clifford. He's big. He's red. There are other red dogs. There are other big dogs. etc. etc. It's kind of boring. If you're looking for a Clifford book to read to a child, I would not pick this one. If you're looking for a Clifford book to help a child practice reading, this would be a good one to use - until they get bored with it. Check out some of the other Clifford books for better ones, Small Red Puppy, Firehouse, Halloween, Champion, etc.

I’ve always loved Clifford since I was a young child so I knew I had to get this for my daughter. It’s the original story, so make sure you buy this one if you are buying other Clifford stories. Would make a great gift.

I've read this to my daughter Dianne Mary Flynn when I was carring he. And also after I had her because this was the first book I've read when I was younger.

I downloaded this on my iPad Kindle for my 3 year old granddaughter. She really didn't enjoy the Kindle experience as much as turning pages in a real book, looking at pictures, and interacting with the story. She much prefers her Clifford paperbacks which we read again and again.

Okay..ishReviewed in the United Kingdom on June 6, 2014
My 3 year old absolutely lives Clifford, so, is prepared I'm sure to put up with the terrible, terrible drawing of Clifford in this book that look absolutely nothing like the original red dog! Surely, this book hasn't been produced by the original artists? I found some of the storyline very annoying like Clifford always eating shoes...and never being corrected by his adoring Emily Elizabeth; while of course her jealous friends wear a scowl on their faces. Quite annoying but given 2 stars for the entertainment value.

Good readReviewed in the United Kingdom on December 16, 2018
An old favourite. I read it to my older grandchildren when they were very small and now have a three year old grandson who loves it now

Very simple book to read, not exactly a story. May be a bit boring to some, but considered a classic. The illustrations are clear and nice to look at, and there are many books in the series which can make having Clifford books more fun.
Five StarsReviewed in the United Kingdom on June 18, 2016
Bought these for my young daughter and she loves Clifford so loves any book with him in.
