Children's LiteratureThe now popular TV personality, Caillou, has been the focus of numerous books for young children. At the Market is part of the "Scooter" series that offers a spread where kids can place the reusable stickers into the scene to create their own stories. In this brief story Caillou doesn't do as he is told. Mom has said no to a box of cookies and while in the check-out line has asked Caillou to watch his sister Rosie. Caillou can't resist the pull of the cookies and heads out into the store to find them. He gets confused and lost, but happily is quickly found by Mom. The art looks like static scenes from computer-generated art, and it is printed on sturdy pages with a high sheen. Caillou has many experiences that kids will be able to understand and also share all of his emotions. This book is more of a personal purchase than something for the school or public library. 2002 (orig. 1987), Choutte Publishing, Ages 3 to 6.
