Dr. Francoise Dolto, a French psychoanalyst famous for her work with babies and children, inspired the founders of Chouette Publishing, based in Quebec part of French Canada, to create Caillou. She popularized the concept that children are people in their own right and should be respected as such. Caillou launched initially as a series of books and became a television series. Caillou represents a 4 year old’s perspective on the world around him.
