My son received as a gift the program "Le Club des Trouvetout, 5ème primaire, L'énigme du Volcan" from TLC-Edusoft.

It is supposed to work with Windows 95 (it looks like an old box) and we have now Windows 7, but it doesn't work. Is there something we can do to make it work?

There aren't many cases where Windows 95 applications work on Windows 7. You might need to use a virtualization product to install Windows XP to try running the application. Windows XP has the possibility to run Windows 95 applications, but that's it. Windows 7 doesn't have support for it. You can use VirtualBox to install Windows XP and then transfer the application/use the CD in that environment. You can use the documentation area to learn how to install XP inside Windows 7.
