Growing up isn't so tough — especially with a friend like Caillou (pronounced KY-YOO), a lovable four-year-old who has a unique way of relating to the world. Based on a series of best-selling Canadian children's books, Caillou demonstrates how the first experiences of life, from going to the park to understanding one's own family, can be perceived with wonder and a sense of discovery. With humor, kid logic, and imagination, Caillou helps preschoolers make sense of the world. The stories address real problems and conflicts typical to a young child's development. Through it all, Caillou remains an irresistible little boy in a very big world, a boy with whom every young child and parent can identify.
Mrs. Howard has sprained her ankle, and Caillou wants to help her around the house. Only, Caillou worries that his "help" is creating havoc - until Mrs. Howard explains that Caillou has been a big help - simply by being there as a friend.
