Are your kids afraid of things or want to know other kids have that fear too?
Do your kids like to know they're not the only ones afraid of something? Well, get Caillou the Courageous for them, on DVD! They will love it and be more confident in things that they can overcome their fears of doing.
"Caillou the Courageous” will be available on DVD October 11, 2016. The DVD run time is approximately 60 minutes and its price to buy is $12.99. The stories featured on this DVD are listed below. Episodes of Caillou are also available for digital download.
Mommy takes Caillou and Clementine to an indoor rock climbing wall, but Caillou doesn’t want to give it a try. It’s much too intimidating! Caillou overcomes his fear by literally taking things one step at a time.
“The Spider Issue”
After looking at a spider alien comic book with his older pal, Andre, Caillou becomes afraid of spiders. He’s nervous around the house, until Daddy tells him some spider facts and shows him how cool spiders can really be...and Caillou has to agree; they ARE pretty cool!
“Caillou Roller Skates”
Caillou wants to learn how to roller skate...until he realizes roller skating is very difficult. With a little help and guidance from his friend, Daniel, Caillou decides to keep practicing, so his skills will improve – just like Daniel’s did!
Caillou likes it when Miss Martin calls him a “shadow scientist”...so much so, he’s afraid to admit he doesn’t know everything about shadows. When Caillou’s curiosity gets the better of him, he learns it’s much easier to find the answers you’re looking for when you ask questions.
Caillou wants to take a picture of a bunny rabbit in Grandma’s garden, but it proves a harder task then he originally thought. With a little perseverance (and a little lettuce from the garden) he finally sees the task through to the end – and gets a photo he’s proud of!
“You’re Not Miss Martin!”
Caillou isn’t too happy when Miss Martin is away and his preschool class has a substitute teacher – Mrs. Shelley. She does everything differently and isn’t familiar with the usual routines. When Caillou tries to see things from Mrs. Shelley’s perspective, he decides to give her another chance...only to realize how wonderful Mrs. Shelley really is...even if she isn’t Miss Martin.
Jeffrey and Jason are having fun making up silly names for their classmates. But they don’t realize they’re hurting others’ feelings. Caillou isn’t sure what to do – until a chat with Daddy inspires him to speak up and tell Jeffrey and Jason how he feels. When the twins realize their jokes aren’t funny to everyone, they decide to stick to calling only each other silly names.
Lovable four-year-old Caillou has a boundless imagination that makes every experience an opportunity for fun and play. By sharing in his incredible adventures, children can “make believe” along with Caillou and find new ways to understand and enjoy the world around them. Produced by DHX Media, Caillou is designed for preschoolers and airs on PBS Kids (check local listings).
