Count on Clifford, by Norman Bridwell, is an entertaining and educational book that helps children practice and learn numbers 1 through 10.

If the child in your care likes Clifford or s/he has never read or seen the new PBS TV series this book presents a good opportunity to have fun with this lovable character and also learn the numbers.  The Clifford soft cover book series are reasonably priced at under $5 US.   You can also sample a large selection at your local library.

 Activity for 4.5 to 6 year olds:
After reading the Count with Clifford, practice numbers 1 thru 10 with this dot-to-dot coloring page.  You may need to assist with numbers 11-20.  After completing the dots, color and decorate.

Easier activity for children 2 to 4 years old:
After reading the book your child can enjoy coloring this page of Clifford sleeping.  Draw in ten bones above Clifford's image and write numbers 1 to 10 (inside bone), and tell  child Clifford is counting juicy bones in his dreams.  Can s/he help count?
