"Caillou is sick. He has a fever and is coughing. Mommy takes good care of Caillou. She brings him lots of juice and rubs his back. 'Hold me tight, Mommy,' says Caillou."
Bookworm's interest at 18 months: We didn't quite make it through the whole thing, but he was definitely interested. In fact, he fake-coughed when Caillou was coughing!
"Dr. Lopez asks me to open my mouth wide and make an 'ahhh' sound so she can look at my throat. Make an 'ahhh' sound with me. Say 'Ahhh!'
Bookworm's interest at 18 months: He didn't make it very far when I first tried it. He has no idea who Dora is, though, and the text is geared for an older child (age 3-7).
"The nurse said, 'Now I'll check how well your heart is pumping blood through your body.' / She put a cuff on Jame's arm. 'It's like a small balloon,' she said. It became tighter and tighter as it filled with air."
Bookworm's interest at 18 months: He enjoyed the photos. The text is a bit advanced for him.
"The nurse had to give Grandma a shot. That's when Clifford decided to leave. He hates needles."
Bookworm's interest at 18 months: He's not a big Clifford fan (yet?), and this didn't really hold his attention much, but I'm going to try it another day. I think he might enjoy it if I make a big effort to explain what's going on more.
