A dog that can be spotted miles away, Clifford is an iconic friend who lives in the hearts of millions. Generations of kids have enjoyed The Big Red Dog's larger-than-life attitude: For more than 50 years, Clifford has been going on adventures (whether it's in the classroom or at the pool) and modeling excellent behavior for young readers. 

You and your child will laugh and bond over books starring the loveable Big Red Dog. Kids relate to Clifford because he is well-meaning but often finds himself in unexpected situations. Your little one will learn how to embrace the adventures found in everyday activities and approach them with kindness, compassion, and zeal.
