Fritz selected this story as his bedtime story tonight. I've come to realize that Clifford isn't my kind of story. Nonetheless, it is important for the boy to be able to select what he wants to read. There was a time when he wouldn't even sit through a story.

We had a good time playing "hide and seek" with this story. When the text told us some people were in trouble, I asked Fritz where they were. When Emily Elizabeth was mentioned, I asked him where she was. Then we changed things up, and I asked him to explain things that were going on in the story. Fritz loved it and wanted to read it again and again.

As for the story, Clifford helps a firefighting squad put out a fire and rescue people. One wonders how they ever would have done it without a large red dog. Eh. But reading it with your son enhances the experience!
