Encouraging autonomy for preschoolers: Caillou-I Can Do It Myself (L’Heureux and Kary) #CaillouICanDoItMyself #NetGalley

This brightly illustrated book delivers an empowering message to young children: yes, they can do and try to do many things for themselves.  Caillou wants to dress and undress himself, carry dishes to the table and help clear and more.  Sometimes it is easy, sometimes less so.  Caillou’s dad is patient and encouraging to him.  Caillou then is able to take chances.  This is briefly contrasted with a child whose mom does for her what she wants to do.  It is clear which is the preferred path for parents and children.

Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this book in exchange for an honest review.  It is one that deserves a place on young children’s home or nursery school shelves.
