Clifford Bilingual Board Book

Cover of Clifford's bedtime

National Braille Press offers a favorite board book, Clifford's Bedtime/Clifford y la hora de dormir, in print and contracted braille in English and Spanish.  Norman Birdwell tells the story of getting Clifford the Big Red Dog ready for bed,  which is a big job.  Elizabeth gives Clifford a bath in the pool, then she combs his hair with a rake and cleans his teeth with a big brush.  This book lends itself well to a story box or the use of real objects to help children to act out the story using familiar objects from their own experience.
