Picture Book Review: Clifford the Big Red Dog by Norman Bridwell

Looking for your next read? Check out Clifford the Big Red Dog by Norman Bridwell, reviewed by Fulco Library staff, Anne A.

What would you do if you owned a big red dog? Meet Emily Elizabeth and her big red dog named Clifford. Clifford’s size does not stop him from doing all the regular dog things such as chasing cars and fetching sticks. Sometimes his size gets him trouble. He catches and brings Emily Elizabeth cars and police officers. Clifford is also a good protector and friend to Emily Elizabeth.

This classic story has spawned a series of books, a movie, and even a TV show. Clifford’s loveable antics make him relatable to children. Clifford shows everyone that it is acceptable to not be perfect. He makes mistakes and can be hard to manage sometimes, but his merits outweigh his faults. I think most kids love to imagine what it would be like to have Clifford as a pet.
