Із найперших сторінок образ Ніколаса постає дуже чітко: у його кімнаті на підлозі валяються іграшки і одяг, ліжко не застелене, на тумбочці поруч із ним якийсь мотлох, у самого Ніколаса шнурівки розв'язані, він одягає светра на бігу... Хлопчисько! У якийсь момент всі довколишні, наче змовившись, намагаються навчити Ніколаса корисних умінь за допомогою книжок із поясненнями.

Of course, we are in complete agreement with the idea of this book: that books can provide valuable information and great entertertainment. We must admit, however, we’re a bit mystified at how much our girls love this book. They can never get enough of it.

We've been reading a lot of Gilles Tibo books in my classroom and really enjoying them.

We loved how Nicholas has a book as soon as he needs to learn something :)

Book summary: Everytime Nichoals tries to do something - like brush his teeth or ride his bike - someone gives him a book on how to do it right. And he does. But when he's read too many books that tell him what to do, it's time for something new!

We just received this one as part of the TD Grade One Book Giveaway for TD Canadian Children's Book Week (in November). It's a REALLY cute book, with great illustrations. I can't wait to read it to the kids tonight!

Particularly good for Early Years storytime, this tale of a boy being "over-educated" by books to the extent that he now finds them boring goes over well with young children. It reminds us all that reading should be about fun as much as learning.
