Caillou is confused when Emma is allowed to have extra snacks at preschool. He’s even more confused when Miss Martin explains that Emma has juvenile diabetes (type 1). Caillou is worried about his friend Emma and becomes very protective of her. He doesn’t want her to do anything, even go down the slide. But when Emma outruns Caillou in a race, he realizes that diabetes isn’t like a cold or the flu. It’s something Emma has to live with every day — and she’s doing a pretty good job of it.
This Caillou story is a great tool to introduce a discussion and chronic diseases. Having a chronic illness is serious, but it does not mean that life has to be put on hold.
Caillou has been a faithful friend for the past 25 years, growing along with his young audience as they discover life.

I love the Caillou books and this one is no exception. In this story, Caillou does not understand why his friend Emma can eat a snack but he can not. His teacher explains to the class that Emma has Type 1 Diabetes. The children are worried, first that they will catch it, then that their friend is sick. Caillou starts to coddle Emma by wanting to carry her bag, help her swing etc. When Emma tries to tell Caillou she is fine, he does not believe it. When she beats him in a race, he finally understands that she is not sick in the traditional sense, but that Diabetes is something she will live with and learn how to control it. I enjoy this type of book that teaches children about an issue like diabetes, but in a simple way they can understand. This book would be extremely useful in a classroom where one of the students is Diabetic. I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
