Book Recommendation: Too Many Toys

by David Shannon
Could there be a more appropriate time to read this book?  
Spencer has too many toys.  Everyone gives him toys on every holiday, and all the little times in between: the dentist, the doctor, in the kid's other kids' birthday parties!  Toys were taking over the house until Spencer's mother finally takes out a big box and decides the time has come to say goodbye to a few.
Although this book is great, the humor in the text and the pictures might be lost on anyone younger than kindergarten.  My kids enjoyed the book, but I have to admit I probably enjoyed it even more than they did.

This is by far my two-year-old's favorite book now. He LOVES to look at the illustrations of all of the toys this boy has collected.
