Our Review
I remember DD watching Caillou when she was a preschooler. It is hard to imagine that now her little brother watches it. This year, Caillou is celebrating its 25th anniversary. While it is hard to imagine that the series has been around for so long, it is also not a surprise because of how much young kids enjoy watching the show.  The G man received the DVD and book gift set to review. His favorite is "Where I live." After he watched the episode, I took the opportunity to teach him our actual address. One of the things I really like about the show is that it introduces a lot of basic concepts to kids and then I could build on top of those concepts as I attempt to teach my kids more complex ones.
