What's a "Speckle"?! During each half-hour program of Scholastic's Clifford The Big Red Dog™ TV show, Emily Elizabeth "reads" a Speckle story to Clifford. Speckle is Clifford's Favourite storybook character. Speckle stories reinforce themes of friendship, cooperation and kindness. They also encourage reading. Watch these clips and encourage your child to read their Favourite stories!

Clifford's Big Idea: Have Respect
Sharing the intimacy of watching a story together is one way you can demonstrate one of Clifford's Big Ideas: Have Respect. Remember to listen to each other's opinions about the story and to respect the space you are sharing in front of the TV or computer screen! What other Big Ideas are demonstrated in the Speckle stories? Learn more about Clifford's Big Ideas in the Grown-Up's Guide.
