That’s Ridiculous, Said Nicholas by Cheryl Taragin follows the story of young Nicholas who wants nothing more than for people to stop saying such ridiculous things to him. He wants people to stop fussing over him and treat him like a sensible child. Instead, all the people around him do is say things like "you could’ve been eaten by bears" just because he played in the woods. Nicholas can’t understand why people treat him like this until a simple day of cleaning changes his perspective. Nicholas now understands that you have to be kind and considerate of others and that you shouldn’t take the people who care about you for granted.
That’s Ridiculous, Said Nicholas by Cheryl Taragin was an interesting story. I was quite taken aback at Nicholas’s full name; however, once that was explained in the story it made much more sense. Including that interesting little detail, I enjoyed this story and the overall message the author wishes to convey to young children. I think children like Nicholas are very common and this tale will help teach children that there is a reason why people do and say the things they do. It will also show children that there is a good way to respond to people and there is a bad way. Overall, I thought this was a lovely children’s book with bright and beautiful illustrations. I would recommend this book to young children.
