Clifford’s First Snow Day
By Norman Bridwell

Review by: Yvonne Gaudet

     This story is the recollection of Clifford’s first snow day, as told by his owner, Emily Elizabeth. The first snow had been falling all night, that year, and Emily decided to take Clifford for a walk in it. After getting herself all bundled up, the two of them ventured outside. Clifford was really surprised, but he had a little trouble walking in the deep snow. Then Clifford figured out a way to solve his problem, he hopped into Emily’s footprints! They went to the tobogganing hill to watch the children who were sledding there, and Emily thought Clifford might like to try too. Poor Clifford fell off the sled because he couldn’t hold on! Emily put Clifford into her boot and let him use that as a sled. Clifford enjoyed tobogganing very much. Soon Emily and Clifford made there way to the pond to watch the skaters on the ice. Suddenly, Clifford ran onto the ice, narrowly escaping the skaters! Emily was frightened that Clifford would get hurt as she couldn’t reach him. When Emily called for help, a nice boy who was playing hockey with his friends, took Clifford back to Emily. Clifford licked the boys face to say thank you and then it was time to head home. On the way home, Emily saw her friend making a snow man and decided to help him. Emily made the snowman’s tummy and her friend made the bottom and top snow balls. After putting the snowman together Emily realized that Clifford was gone! Where could he be? When the snowman’s red nose began moving and the snowman’s head began barking they quickly found the little pup. Emily took Clifford home to warm up and they both enjoyed a bowl of warm soup. Looking back now, Clifford had a great adventure on his first snow day! Now that Clifford is all grown up he has even more fun with Emily Elizabeth! 
      I recommend this book for ages two to six. The younger ones love the stories of the big red dog and the beginning readers will enjoy reading this one by themselves.
