" This book is good at promoting good deeds to children. It shows that even thought things may not go according to plan, it still is good to help other out. Clifford stories are classic for their cute, big, red dog and for the wonderful lessons he teaches everyone. " said.

" Clifford tried to be a good person by helping others out but every time something went wrong. In the end Clifford saved the day and received an award. This book is something children would like because of the knowledge of who Clifford is. It teaches a lesson about doing the right thing and helping others out. " said.

" In this story, Clifford is trying to help the people around him by doing good deeds, but it doesn't work out so well. This book could be used in preschool class as a funny read aloud. It can show students that they can help by ding different things. If you can't figure out how you can help at first, keep trying. " said.

"Clifford Good Deeds by Norman Bridwell
Audio version so I am not seeing the colorful pictures.
Emily has a dog Clifford. Her friend Timothy try to do a good deed every day.
They help others by piling leaves but it makes Clifford sneeze and they spread all over the place.
They try to help another neighbor and a similar problem comes up....deed after deed.
Will they ever find something Clifford can help with to do a good deed.
I received this book from National Library Service for my BARD (Braille Audio Reading Device).

"Referring to the Storia eBook version - while my son loves this book read to him by the app, I despise this book. The theme is basically "no good deed goes unpunished" until the very end, as Clifford helps person after ungrateful person who treat Clifford as the sum of his mistakes instead of his good intentions and kind heart. The only "reward" he gets is a medal - I'd rather teach my child intrinsic motivation, altruism, and gratitude, but this story seems to undermine these concepts. Maybe I'm just reading too much into it........?" said.

"Clifford the Big Red Dog has been a part of children's literature since 1963, and 75 books later, he is still a favorite among young readers, especially pre-k through third-graders. He is an immediately recognizable friend on library and bookstore shelves that children are drawn to. The 1985 picture book "Clifford's Good Deeds" by Norman Bridwell features familiar characters, Clifford, Emily, and Tim going around town looking for good deeds to do. Clifford has good intentions but ends up causing more trouble every time he tries to help. Finally, when disheartened and heading home, Clifford actually saves some children from a fire and puts the house fire out using water from a swimming pool. He becomes a true hero. There is nothing fantastic about this picture book. The pictures are bold and fun but not especially imaginative. But because he is a beloved character, children will find Clifford's mishaps funny and will celebrate with him at the end when he saves the day." said.

"Clifford’s Good Deed

Summary: This story includes Clifford the famous big red dog and of course his friend Emily Elizabeth. Throughout the story Clifford and his friends go about trying to do “good deeds” although they always had high hopes and good intensions their good deeds didn’t always go as planned. The illustrations in this book show many of the deeds Clifford and his friends were trying to complete.

Response: I gave this book five stars because I thought the meaning was cute. It allows students to realize that things don’t always go according to plan and that’s okay. As long as a child has good intentions and does their best that’s what matters most.

Classroom Connection: I would have student write a journal entry of a time that they tried to do something nice for someone else but it didn’t work out according to plan. They could then go back and think about what they could have done differently or why the plan didn’t work out as they had hoped. After every student is finished those who would like to share would be able to.

CCSS: The lexile measure of Clifford’s Good Deed is 410L. The guided reading level is K and the grade equivalent is 1.2. I believe students from grades kindergarten through second grade would be interested in this book.

" I love Clifford. In this installment, he tries his best to do good deeds, but he keeps messing it up somehow. This book was on my school's pillars of character reading list for 'citizenship'. " said.
