A Picture Book Review for the Canadian Book Review Challenge

Too Much Stuff
By: Robert Munsch
Illustrated b: Michael Martchenko

What child doesn’t want to take her toys with her on vacation? But what if a child wants to take ALL of her toys? How can one even pack all of them?

This story is about Temina. She is told to take only one toy when they go to visit grandma. But she has 37 dolls and 37 toys. Temina pleads with her mother to take them all. But her mother keeps repeating…you can only take ONE toy and ONE doll!

Temina got upset and took matters in her own hands. She was carrying only one toy and one doll into the airport. So, her mother was proud of her until the airline security officer saw all the other toys that were in her backpack.

This is a book that has many important lessons for sharing and discipline. Kids and parents alike will find the book humorous and very colorful.
