Count on Clifford

Clifford teaches young readers how to count.

I always loved Clifford so there was no question about it, I had to read this book. This is a counting book. It is Clifford's birthday and the fun things they do. They include counting by inviting "four" friends, and having "three" presents. This is a great learning book!
Bailey Forkner
Excellent tool to use when practicing counting, and especially when adding! This book is set around Clifford's birthday, the preparation of it and the celebration itself. They count balloons, party guests, presents, and other things. Wonderful resource for math class!

A good book for when babysitting a really cranky but sharp toddler :)

We didn't grow up with too many Clifford books, but I think we had the large version of this. I remember that I loved counting all of the different dogs.

9/1/12 Unfortunately, our copy is not very large. This may not be as exciting in a storytime setting as it would in a lap-read or read-alone. And I had such hopes for my birthday theme storytime to include a counting book.

Cute counting book, although not our favorite, I guess. It follows the story of getting ready for Clifford's birthday party. The illustrations seem dated, but the numbers are clear and my son picked them out on each page. It was nice to have him count the objects in the scenes, but the adding up and distinguishing between girl and boy was a little harder.

Yeah, I was definitely a douche when I was little. I distinctly remember being like WTF why would I read a book about counting when I could just COUNT?
