Summary: This book is great for introducing young students to the alphabet. The author of this book includes a list of words that begin with the particular letter on each page. I believe including a list of words in addition to an illustration is very beneficial for young students. They are introduced to a variety of words that will help them remember each letter of the alphabet. There is no story or setting to this book but the memorable characters, Clifford and Emily Eliza...more

I thought this book was okay. It's a good way to introduce words that begin with different letters of the alphabet. I felt like there was an overwhelming amount of words for each letter though. I probably wouldn't use this book until the child really knows the alphabet.

Does NOT have a story. Each page covers one letter of the alphabet. You see Clifford and Emily Elizabeth with labeled objects that all begin with the designated letter. There is also a list of all the objects to the side, to help you in talking with your toddler about them. More useful as a device for conversation with your toddler about letters.

I really like Clifford's ABC by Norman Bridwell because it expands the kids vocabulary. Instead of just listing the letters and possibly one word that starts with the letter, she lists several words.. This is good because it lets kids understand more words which will help them in the future.
This one turned out to be a winner, as I supposed it would when pre-reading it. For each letter there is a whole list and picture with each item in the list. After a while, when I read a word off the list, my son would start finding the words on the page. Helpful for a pre-reader.
Bridwell’s very cute dog Clifford introduces each letter of the alphabet with loads of examples. A good ABC book for young children, especially for fans of Clifford.
For kindergarten children, I would use this book in the classroom to help children learn vocabulary words that begins with the letters of the alphabet from A-Z.
See my comments on Count on Clifford... I also remember being annoyed it wasn't ABCs or ABC's instead of ABC.

There is nothing special about this ABC book. It is a little outdated with words like "Eskimo."
good early reader, using texet to relate to the television show
On the suggested summer reading list for students.
