Clifford Visits the Hospitalby Norman Bridwell, Norman Bridwell
Clifford visits the hospital and gets into mischief everywhere he goes. Although dogs are not allowed in the hospital, Clifford the small red puppy manages to get in.
Children's Literature - Marilyn CourtotIf you have a hard time thinking of Clifford as a little puppy, perhaps this amusing story will help. Emily Elizabeth and her mother are visiting grandma in the hospital and they are bringing a basket of cookies. Clifford slipped into the basket and while Emily Elizabeth and her mother head off to get Granma a magazine, he jumps out. Grandma is delighted and knows that she must hide him from the nurse. What happens afterwards is pure chaos. Clifford escapes from the room and stops to visit with the sick children. When they try to dress him up as a doll, he scoots off again and manages to trip up a trolley with meals and then ends up in the nursery. What a shock when a dad comes to see his new baby. Finally he is corralled by the medical staff and given back to the family to take home. In the meantime, Emily Elizabeth and her mother have found a suitable substitute for Granma. The draws are typical of all the Clifford books and kids who enjoy reading about Clifford will enjoy hearing about his antic as a puppy. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot

We bought this book as a gift, but I have always liked Clifford books for children. My daughter had them when she was younger. Clifford is a fun big red dog and most children love him and his stories.
Clifford teaches some basic values and lessons that can be taught to a wide age group of children from toddlers to young children.
