Caillou 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!
Caillou’s Garden Adventures includes the following episodes:
“Caillou Can Compost”
Caillou learns the value of seeing a task through to the end when he explores the “magic” of compost in Grandma’s garden.
Caillou learns to deal with change when he and Daddy replace an old decaying tree with a new one.
“Caillou Saves Water”
When Miss Martin asks the class to think up ways to save water, Caillou learns that many small contributions can add up to a very large one!
After hiking through Blueberry Point, Caillou realizes that time spent with his Grandpa is the best birthday gift he could give him.
Caillou sees the importance of not playing favorites after he neglects his own pet to care for the class hamster.
“In the Garden”
Caillou learns that beauty is in the eye of the beholder when Rosie decides to pick “flowers” (i.e. dandelions) for Daddy.
