After Christmas Clean-up: Too Many Toys by David Shannon

Too Many Toys by David Shannon was published in 2008. This book has classic David Shannon Artwork. Spencer, the main character is a little boy who is loved by all his family members who give him toys at every single holiday including the 4th of July.

Now his house is full of toys and his mama is tired of stepping on them, so she tells him it is time to get rid of some toys. Of course he has tender feelings tied to many of his toys, but they are able to fill a box. But, will the toys stay in the box?

You can see more of his books and artwork here. His illustrations are bright, detailed, fun.

Blurb from his website: Spencer has too many toys! His father trips over them, his mother falls over them, and the house is overflowing with junk. Now its time to give some of the mountain of goodies away, but Spencer finds it hard. In the end, he fills a box, but decides the one toy he can’t part with is the box itself!

This is a book that both parents and children can relate to as at some point, all of us need to de-junk our houses.

How goes the toy parade at your house?
