Book Review: Caillou and the Big Bully

bullyIn Caillou and The Big Bully, Caillou doesn’t want to go to daycare.  Mommy says he has to.  When he gets home, he is mean to Rosie.  Mommy and Daddy know that something is going on.  Caillou finally tells him that Theo at daycare is too big for him and is mean.  Daddy teaches Caillou how to stand up for himself.  The next time Theo tries to push him around, Caillou tells him to stop, and Theo does.  The daycare teacher also tells Theo to be polite and gentle with the other kids at daycare.

This is the only book of the Caillou series that I had read that actually seemed to teach a good lesson.  Although, I’m not sure why the daycare teacher took until Caillou stood up to Theo to tell Theo to be nicer.  But  I guess he was doing all this to Caillou behind her back.

Ok, maybe not.  She doesn’t seem to act that sick to Caillou, but Emma explains more to him about her diabetes and how she is not sick, she just has to manage it every day so she doesn’t get dizzy.  A nice way for kids to learn a bit about diabetes.
