New DVD Collection from PBS KIDS Series CAILLOU,

If you have children in your home, then you have probably sat through the hit animated series, CAILLOU, which airs daily on PBS KIDS.  Now ready to feel old?  Did you know that CAILLOU is celebrating 25 years of being on television?  Yep, you read that right -- 25 years.  Even though Caillou himself doesn't age beyond age 4, this series has grown with your child and helped them learn important skills through imaginative play and exploration.  I remember watching this series back when I used to babysit years old, and then started watching again once we welcomed our girls.  

PBS Kids really does have an amazing collection of shows geared towards preschoolers and young children, and CAILLOU is top on my family's list of favorite shows to watch.  My girls really get into this show and try to act out scenes from each day's stories after watching.  I have seen them want to explore and learn new things as a result of seeing Caillou doing something.  And, when you pick up this recent DVD release, you will be able to share all things CAILLOU with your children, that will ahve them wanting to explore and use their imaginations, just like Caillou.

My girls were so excited to see this 3-DVD collection and have been busy watching each and every episode, all 230 minutes. :-)  There are also fun coloring pages and activities that you can download and share with your child.  Curious as to which already aired full-length episodes make up this DVD? Here is the complete list...
