Where are you Caillou?

Caillou is a book character that many children are fond of. However, I noticed that several of my young friends were having difficulty finding these books. Why? 

At the library, we organize picture books by the author's last name. However, Caillou is one of those series that has been written by several different people. Consequently, many friends are not able to find what they are looking for.

I have gathered these items for you and they are now located on a display in the children's area. I hope that this makes it easier for you to find the items you want to read.
