After several attempts, a few failures, and near misses, Caillou learns to ask for the potty when he needs it and is rewarded with a sense of accomplishment and independence. Written with input from child psychologists, the Hand-in-Hand series of books helps children navigate their way successfully through various key developmental experiences of childhood.
I Can Brush My Teeth
Caillou isn’t a baby anymore. He wants to brush his teeth by himself. After breakfast and before going to bed, Caillou brushes little circles all over his teeth, just like Daddy! The ones in the back are harder to reach, but Caillou tries his best. Either Mommy or Daddy is always by his side to give him a guiding hand or some pointers for next time. Caillou even takes care to brush his dinosaurs’ big teeth! Developed with the help of a pediatric dentist and a child psychologist, Caillou: I Can brush My Teeth illustrates how Caillou’s mastery of fine motor-skills allows him to gain more independence in small but important ways.
Learns About Screen Time
Caillou learns about healthy digital habits!
Caillou would like to watch a cartoon on Daddy’s tablet, but Daddy suggests they play a game on it together instead. Once the game is over and the tablet is turned off, Daddy continues to spend quality time with Caillou by reading him a book.
Screens are part of our daily lives and their use, especially with children, can be a challenging issue. It isn’t necessary to ban digital devices or unplug from everything all the time. But it is important to help your child establish a healthy relationship with electronics.
By setting a good example, adults teach children that these devices can be used to learn and have fun.
