Our kids are big fans of Caillou, so I was really excited to have them try this app. As usual, our 2 year old was the first to get to it! I wasn’t sure how he would do since it does have letters, which he’s not too familiar with yet. The way the app is set up, though, is so that it is not discouraging if you guess incorrectly. It’s very encouraging, which I think is great. I’ve actually seen a few “learning apps” that are kind of harsh when the child guesses incorrectly. The Caillou’s World app, though, was very positive and encouraging. Our 2 year old particularly loved that the pictures would start off “plain,” and would fill in with color as you go along. He loved “coloring” the pictures. Our older 2 kids really enjoyed more of the letters – and helping Chaz learn the letters. I think that was the most enjoyable part for me is that they enjoyed playing it together and helping out their little brother with the letters so he could enjoy his favorite part of “coloring” the pictures. As they proceed through it they earn stars, which sets goals for them to reach as well. I love that it rewards them for their work because our kids respond best to reinforcement based learning. I always think it’s great when you can find characters your kids love and offer that learning experience, too! It really encourages them to learn and have fun while doing it!
