A great book to introduce kids to politeness!

With Mommy and Daddy’s help, Caillou learns that it’s nice to hear the words please and thank you. They are like a friendly hug that encourages people to respond favorably. Politeness is much more than just a social convention; it is also a way to ease our interactions with others. Even very young children can learn to express their needs courteously. In this book, Caillou discovers why asking nicely is so important.

  • Reading with your child is a bonding experience that they will remember for years to come;
  • This book reminds little ones to be polite when addressing others, especially adults;
  • Please and thank you, important words for little ones to have in their vocabulary from a young age.

Caillou’s Essentials is a collection of books about Caillou growing up. It depicts the developmental milestones, both the small and the significant, of toddlers striving to become self-confident and independent. The stories present a range of childhood experiences, such as potty training, brushing your teeth and learning to share.
