In 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.
I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review. I was not otherwise compensated.
