“Clifford’s Big Book of Things to Know: A Book of Fun Facts” by Norman Bridwell
Lily picked this book from the library at school. She’s been in an Arthur or Clifford groove lately.
It was a good choice. Rather than being a story book, each page was a different topic.
Sports and Games
Growing a Garden
Taking Care of Pets
Insects and Spiders
Rain and Snow
The Earth, Sun, and Moon
Under the Sea
Building a House
A Recycling Plant
Mailing a Letter
Digging a Tunnel
Clifford Tells Time
On the Growing a Garden section, there were instructions for growing a bean plant from dried beans. We tried it this evening to see how our beans grow!
