My kiddos love the Clifford books, especially since they can "relate" with our ginormous dog.
Here in San Diego, we have been experiencing unusually hot and humid weather, so I felt like I had to include this particular Clifford title in Storytime today. It is the height of summer and Clifford tries all the usual methods to stay cool, but at his size they don't always work quite right. For instance, watching a dog riding in a car enjoying the cool breeze, Clifford climbs on top of a large truck - which cools him off...until the truck passes under a freeway overpass.

I love Clifford books because Clifford and Emily Elizabeth are both such loveable characters. I would use this book in the classroom to work on beginning, middle, and end. The story is pretty straight foreward and the students should be able to recite what happened in the beginning, the middle, and the end.Students can also work on predicting and predict what will happen to Clifford each time he tries a new way to keep cool.
It's summer and Clifford the Big Red Dog is having a terrible time trying to keep cool. He sees other dogs riding in vehicles to stay cool, but it's hard when you're as big as Clifford. He finally finds a spot to cool off and ends up saving some children in the process.

Clifford's too big to cool off in the usual way. It's a standard Clifford story showing all the unique difficulties a dog his size would have, and then having him save the day in some unusual way because of... his size.
On a sweltering day, Clifford tries to find a way to cool off. But a swimming pool is too small, a single fan doesn't can such a huge dog cool down?
My kids like the Clifford books. This is about Clifford and his summer activities trying to cool off.
My daughter loves the Clifford books. Makes me happy that we have this in common.
