As you know from my previous reviews my daughter loves Caillou.  She will soon be turning 4 just like him.  She easily relates to him especially when it comes to helping out.  My daughter's teacher says that she is her biggest helper.  

The adventures included on this DVD are listed below. In one of the stories, “Emma’s Extra Snacks,” Caillou learns that while his friend Emma has diabetes, it doesn’t stop her from participating in all her favorite activities. A new book from Chouette Publishing called “Emma’s Extra Snacks” will be available this fall. The book, published with the American Diabetes Association, includes a poster about Emma and her diabetes.

Emma’s Extra Snacks

Worried about his friend, Cailloubecomes very protective of Emma, not wanting her to do anything – not even go down the slide!  But when Emma outruns Caillou in a race, he soon realizes Emma’s diabetes isn’t like a cold or flu. It’s something Emma has to live with every day...and she’s doing a pretty good job of it.

  5. My memory is so faulty I think I remember seeing this show on PBS when a few of my cousins were little. I love that it is educament for young children. Something to hold their interest but sneaks in some education for them.
