How I Predicted Today Going…
I know how much the kids love Clifford, so I had no doubt they would like this book. I also figured we would end up talking about dogs, but I was actually surprised when they started asking questions about Washington and the different monuments that Clifford saw while he was in Washington, lead right into them starting to ask questions about our own state, we had a great discussion.

Activities Produced from that Story:
Playing & grooming Vega (The dog)
Decorated dogs
Built monuments
Learned about Iowa
Wrote our pen pals about Iowa
Talked about Scooby-Doo
Scooby-Doo dance party
Read other dog books
