Four-year-old Caillou celebrates winter by building snowmen, going sledding, making snow angels, and enjoying holiday traditions in these four episodes of the popular animated children's TV show.
Children are drawn to Caillou, the star of a popular series of Canadian children's books, because he�s so much like them--curious, active, and imaginative. They'll learn how to handle some of their trickier emotions--like jealousy--by taking their cues from him, and will be excited to try some of the winter activities he enjoys. It's no wonder preschoolers find Caillou so appealing, when his approach to life is that "Growing up Is the Greatest Adventure of All!"
There are 14 stories in these episodes, and babies may enjoy watching one at a time. Two-year-olds will relate to Caillou, who shouts, "I don't want to wear it!" when his mother tries to dress him in his snowsuit, and they'll laugh when he puts his boots on the wrong feet because he's so excited to get out and play in the first snowfall of the season.
Preschoolers will feel empowered by each of Caillou's accomplishments, like learning to play hockey and making a speedy-fast toboggan out of a cardboard box, and will gain the confidence to believe they can be just as successful in anything they attempt. They'll realize, through the "Practice Makes Perfect" song, that you have to keep trying, and that "once is not enough." Preschoolers will also have fun learning how to make paper snowflakes and catching snowflakes on their tongues!
Most kids in this age group won't be interested in the younger Caillou because they've already been there, done that. Younger children may make an effort to be more organized after seeing Caillou forget to tell his mother that he needs to bring his toboggan to class until they're leaving for school, and end up having to make do with a cardboard box.
