Emily LOVES Caillou. Thank goodness for OnDemand.

"Caillou is a 4-year-old boy who delights in the small wonders of the world around him, embellishing everything he sees with his rich imagination. Surrounded by his parents, his little sister, Rosie, his grandparents and friends his age, Caillou discovers the world and just can't wait to grow up! Everything around him is an excuse to embark on exciting adventures, learn new things and have fun. Whether he's at school, at home or in a park, Caillou finds opportunities for learning and growing everywhere!

Each episode of the series is a slice of Caillou's life. Thanks to his vivid imagination, ordinary, everyday events quickly become exciting adventures where Caillou can play "make-believe". But Caillou can tell the difference between real life and pretending. When he is done playing make-believe, Caillou happily returns to the familiar daily routine of a 4-year-old. Indeed, each episode begins and ends firmly anchored in the real world.

Designed for preschoolers, the Caillou television series is composed of 30 minute episodes divided into three 7 minute adventures. In each adventure, Caillou discovers the big, wide world, experiences new things, shares his imaginary adventures with us and sometimes, even sings for his little viewers!" --PBS Web site


Emily has discovered magnets, thanks to Caillou. (more on him later) Here are some pictures of where Emily has found where magnets will stick. Wood vs. Metal. Another lesson is the making. Besides these photos, she has found that they stick to the base of the lamp in the living room, obviously the fridge, but she loves to go around the house finding new things that are metal to stick them on.
