PreS-Gr 1

In this adaptation from an animated film, Caillou counts down the 12 days before Christmas using an advent calendar. Each day, the family enjoys a brief story that explains different customs such as why we have Christmas trees, the origin of the first Christmas cards, the legend of St. Nicholas, and how to say Merry Christmas in other languages. Although there is a countdown involved, only the numbers 12, 11, 10, 4, 2, and 1 are prominently displayed, giving the book a slightly disjointed feel. Multiple concurrent vignettes, such as Caillou's visit to Santa, an explanation of a friend's Hanukkah customs, and mysterious disappearing household objects tend to distract readers instead of advancing the plot. Still, the big bright cartoon illustrations might appeal to fans of the animated series.-Madeline J. Bryant, Los Angeles Public Library
