Caillou: I Can Brush My Teeth : Healthy Toddler
Caillou isn't a baby anymore. He wants to brush his teeth by himself. After breakfast and before going to bed, Caillou brushes little circles all over his teeth, just like Daddy! The ones in the back are harder to reach, but Caillou tries his best. Either Mommy or Daddy is always by his side to give him a guiding hand or some pointers for next time. Caillou even takes care to brush his dinosaurs' big teeth! Developed with the help of a pediatric dentist and a child psychologist, Caillou: I Can brush My Teeth illustrates how Caillou's mastery of fine motor-skills allows him to gain more independence in small but important ways.

If the average toddler is anything like my three-year old niece, they will love this book! We read it six times over the course of a day. Caillou is growing up and wants to brush his teeth on his own without help from his parents. The story instructs the child to brush in little circles all around the mouth. While the story is a bit repetitive for an adult, this does not appear to be an issue with children and reinforces proper technique as recommended by dentists. Children familiar with the Caillou television program might question why the parents look quite different from the same characters as presented on the show. My niece also astutely observed, "Where's Rosie?" since the two-year old sister does not make an appearance. The story is simple, the illustrations colourful, and will hopefully encourage children to have fun brushing their teeth by themselves. However, you may have to buy your child sparkly toothpaste so they can brush like Caillou! —Trish Chatterley, The Deakin Review of Children's Literature
