The Rock Father is a 2014 PBS KIDS VIP (Very Involved Parent) BloggerCaillou is a hero here at Rock Father HQ, my oldest daughter's first love... something that's been well-documented here on the site. There's a ton of educational value in the popular series (which airs on both PBS KIDS and Sprout here in the U.S.), and one of the biggest areas that's really hit home for us is the emphasis on Gardening. In fact, there's been an entire series of Caillou Ecology Club products, and last year, I featured one of our own adventures when I posted an entry called "Learning to Compost... Just Like Caillou." Now, just in-time for Spring, PBS Distribution is releasing a new DVD collection, CAILLOU'S GARDEN ADVENTURES, which will hit stores on February 25. Featuring six garden-themed episodes, kids and grownups can learn about water conservation, flowers, planting, and yes, even composting. Check out the details below!

The series will focus on two young agents, Olive and Otto, who serve as part of the ODD SQUAD, solving cases that rank among the unusual. Within each case, a math concept will be presented.
