Based off the popular PBS kids show, Caillou, Night & Day Studios has released Caillou's World. It's intended to help children ages 2-5 with with reading, spelling and phonics.

In Caillou’s World choose one of the familiar scenes from Caillou's life (such as his playground, playschool, or attic). At first the scene will be drawn in black outlines just like a coloring book. As you look around, an element of the scene--a toy, animal, tool, or object--will light up for a moment. Touch it and try to figure out which letter its name begins with. Is it A for airplane? What letter does dragonfly start with? Get it right and the item will be filled with color and the scene will begin to be filled in.

  • 7 different scenes to explore, with big clues and small
  • Over 100 pictures to find and letter pairs to learn
  • For ages 2-4
  • Challenges adapt to your developing skill
  • Original music and a friendly narrator

Caillou's Word is available on the iPhone and iPad for $2.99 each.
