The Perfect Post-Christmas Book: Too Many Toys

I want to give every kid I know Too Many Toys, by David Shannon, right AFTER Christmas.

The main character, Spencer, is literally swimming in a sea of toys. He's got a convoy of teeny cars, a zoo of stuffed animals, an orchestra of plastic instruments ... all given to him by the many wonderful people who love him, so how could he possibly get rid of them?

And parents will appreciate the hilarious finish about finally finding the best toy of all: the cardboard box that Spencer was supposed to be filling up to get rid of his booty.
