Reviews - What do customers think about Caillou: Baby Sister (Hand in Hand series)?
A must for all toddlers who are big sibs Jan 29, 2005
A book that sensitively and realistically portrays the feelings and anxieties of an older sibling dealing with the arrival of a new baby in his world. My 22 month old loves this book. It helps him identify his feelings of jealousy, aggression, sadness/anger in an accepting and understanding way. In the story, Caillou's mom and dad acknowledge his feelings and wishes while helping redirect his behaviors in more acceptable ways. Contrary to the negative reviews about the book written on this site, this book actually addresses all the normal (but complex) feelings and behaviors of toddlers in a sensitive and effective way. It in no way encourages nor condones negative behaviors. Highly recommended for all toddlers who have younger sibs.
A book full of bad ideas Sep 26, 2003
I bought this book for my daughter who loves Caillou. It's a terrible book filled with so much bad behavior, I'd like to throw it away. Caillou bites the new baby! Not a book to read to an impressionable sibling--especially one who loves to be like Caillou.
Surprisingly horrible Sep 24, 2003
As my daughter loves the PBS show, I was excited to find a book that showed a tv friend in the same situation as she -- soon to become an older sibling. I was horrified to find that Caillou BITES his new baby sister and gives other terrible ideas to its young readers. Why in the world would the author introduce such thoughts?? I will never buy another Caillou book!
Not a good example. . . Apr 4, 2003
I bought this book for my son right before his sister was born but the little boy in the book talks about hurting his sister and I think that is a very bad example. The idea is good though, for talking to a toddler about having a sibling.
Pure Disappointment Mar 10, 2003
I was very disappointed and shocked when I first read this book. My jaw literally dropped.Caillou is portrayed as a very naughty child who regresses in development and displays poor behavior after his sister is born. He wets his bed, wants to drink from a bottle, bites his sister, and throws a doll against the wall that happens to look just like Rosie. I find this book very inappropriate to read to a young child; and I am saddened to see Caillou portrayed this way; especially knowing how much my daughter adores him.
