Clifford’s First Christmas
By Norman Bridwell

Review by: Yvonne Gaudet

     When Clifford was still a little puppy, he had never had a Christmas before. He had never even seen a real Christmas tree until Christmas Eve! That’s when Emily and her mom and dad got out the Christmas decorations and began to decorate the house. Even Clifford was able to help! Emily held the branches down low enough so that Clifford was able to hang ornaments in the tree. When they were finished, the tree looked beautiful, that is of course after they rescued Clifford from the top of the tree! Clifford like playing with the hanging ornaments until one ball swung back at him and knocked him over. Then it was time for Emily Elizabeth to wrap some gifts and of course Clifford was right there to lend a hand. Finally it was time to go to bed. Emily tucked Clifford into his bed, then she got into hers and they both fell fast asleep. 
     Well Clifford really tried hard to sleep but he couldn’t so he decided to investigate the stockings that were hanging on the fireplace. This had seemed like a good plan to Clifford until he fell right into Emily’s stocking and got stuck! It wasn’t to long before Santa came! As Santa was about to fill Emily’s stocking, he noticed it moving! By this time Emily had awoken as well, so Santa tucked them into bed and asked them to go back to sleep so he could finish delivering his parcels. The following morning Santa had left many presents for Emily and her family. He even left a huge bone for Clifford! Clifford was so small that first Christmas, that Emily was able to let him ride in her electric toy car! It didn’t take long for Clifford to learn he was not such a good driver! Then Clifford pretended to be a giant dog in Emily’s toy doll house and a tunnel for her train set. He even gave Emily’s tiny doll a ride on his back! If only Emily knew then how big Clifford would become! 
     I recommend this book for ages 2-6. The younger children will enjoy the story and the early readers will enjoy practicing their reading skills.
