Too Many Toys by David Shannon

Before reading this book, I asked our kindergarten readers which toy they absolutely would never think of giving away.  I heard a chorus of Legos, American Girl Dolls, bikes, Hot Wheels, play make-up, and many others.  The students could really relate to the character in this book who never wanted to get rid of any of his prized possessions. 

Caldecott Honor winner and bestselling author-illustrator David Shannon makes readers laugh aloud when young Spencer's mountain of toys becomes overwhelming. A book that will be read again and again.

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!
