Caillou and the Innu at the New Brunswick Museum!

 

From June 10 to October 3 children are invited to follow Caillou, the popular character created by Éditions Chouette, in his adventures through the pages of a giant interactive book read to them in English, French or Innu. A play area with a replica of an Innu camp, including an Innu tent, costumes, games, and authentic objects will carry children off to a fascinating world full of Innu traditions. (Bilingual)
