Caillou is the conductor of the ABC Train, a wonderful jigsaw train that chugs through the world of letters. On his train ride, Caillou employs the help of family, friends, and animals of every kind to help him learn his alphabet. Children can play with the puzzle pieces by placing them on corresponding images, and arrange the letters in order to make a train or simply enjoy the wonderful story and full-color illustrations.
Chouette Publishing first published Caillou books in 1990, and the character went on to become the well-loved hero of the popular television series. They are located in Montreal, Quebec. Eric Sévigny is a graphic artist and the illustrator of numerous Caillou books, including Caillou: 123 Train and Caillou: Happy Holidays! He lives in Montreal, Quebec.
"Caillou ABC Train was probably [my children's] favorite book. It is a board book shaped like a train. In it are miniature puzzles with the ABCs (they go 3 letters at a time). Your child can take the puzzle pieces out, look at the letters and then fit them back into the ABC Train." themommy-files.com
"Nice, sturdy puzzle pieces can be popped out of the pages and they all connect together, ultimately forming a train alphabet. This one was probably my favorite and would make a great toddler gift." apatchworkofbooks.blogspot.com
