Get your child ready to learn how to read with Caillou!
Based on the hit PBS KIDS TV series, this animated story featuring Caillou is part of iRead With, a new shared-reading program designed to foster language development and help preschoolers get ready to read.
There’s a special event at Caillou’s day care. Leo, Clementine and Caillou are getting ready to be in a play. They enjoy dressing up and rehearsing but they appreciate it even more when their parents come to see the show. Vividly illustrated, this compelling story offers an inside look at the jitters and the thrills of a first-time performance. Read along, follow the prompts and a special treat, find the Dinosaur that shows up unexpected in every page!
"The theater section is what I and my toddler found most interesting. She loves to create her own stories complete with dialogue and character interactions!" - iHeart This App
"Caillou: My First Play shows that developer Tribal Nova has yet another winner to add to their collection of apps for young children." - Best Apps For Kids
iRead With animated stories encourage a participative reading experience engaging both child and parent. This new shared-reading method was created in conjunction with University of McGill University Child Phonology Lab, where extensive research shows that the most effective read-alouds are those where children are actively involved.
