Too Many Toys
David Shannon's messy illustrations are just perfect for this story about Spencer and his many toys. Too many toys, to be exact! An exasperated mother fights to shed her home of broken and little used toys as her son explains earnestly that he was just about to play with that one! Almost every page presents a bright and colorful spread of toys that is great fun to search through if you have the time to linger in this book. Spencer's mother, of course, gets her way and a box of toys is finally collected for removal, but there's a fun surprise waiting for you at the end of the story! This book is pure fun, but I won't hesitate to use it as a clear visual of how I will not have our house look when it comes time to fill a box for donation this Spring!!
