Product Description

Look out below! Let your creativity soar as toys of all shapes and sizes squeak, zip, and whirl across the page.

If you’re game, open up the world’s wackiest toy chest, where anything and everything can turn into nonstop, action-packed fun. Once again, Peter Stein’s playful verse and Bob Staake’s uproarious illustrations come together in an explosion of color and whimsy, while imagination takes center stage as the best toy of all. Toys Galore is one playground you won’t want to miss!

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2–This story in rhyme celebrates just about every toy imaginable. “Small toy, tall toy,/bouncing-ball toy./Hat toy, shoe toy./Stretchy GOO toy!” Characters done in a cartoon style play with everything from balls, trucks, and clay to “floaty, bubbly,/while-you-wash toys.” The youngsters have ovalheads; big eyes; and faces of red, green, purple, orange, pink, and yellow; their hair is any color from black to orange. They play with “jump toys! Ride toys!/Slip-and-slide toys!” and a “futuristic outer-space car! [or a] Soap Box Derby/homemade chase car.” This catalog goes on for pages and can get a bit tedious. However, the imaginative illustrations will hold readers'' attention. Staake''s detailed artwork is rendered digitally, and each page has numerous playthings or activities to look at or talk about with an adult. Children will enjoy discovering and naming items. The story takes a while to get to the point: that the very best toy is one''s imagination, but the book is suitable as a lead-in for an art lesson or other creative activities. Pair it with a classic such as Crocket Johnson''s Harold and the Purple Crayon or newer works like Barney Saltzberg''s Andrew Drew and Drew (Abrams, 2012) for a tribute to the imaginative spirit.–Roxanne Burg, Orange County Public Library, CAα(c) Copyright 2013.

One of my pet peeves in children''s literature is books written in clunky, forced rhyme. Usually about halfway through reading those books out loud, I will stop and just tell the story in prose. I read Toys Galore out loud, all the way through, and using the original text.

Off the top of my head, I can think of three authors worth studying for learning how to write in rhyme for children''s books: Karma Wilson, Jane Yolen and Peter Stein. Karma Wilson and Jane Yolen excel at regular metered rhyme; Peter Stein is also very good at it, too, but he is also very good at breaking up the meter, which is useful for longer stories in rhyme. Toys Galore is way fun to read out loud.

Toys Galore is also way fun to look at. My four-year-old son studied the artwork with all the intensity I used to put into the toy section of the Sears catalogue at Christmas time. He''s going to be really disappointed when we go into Toys R Us or Target and he can''t find any toys just like the ones in Bob Staake''s illustrations. Heck, I''m probably going to be really disappointed, too.

After reading all of the "Galore" books, I have to say that "Toys Galore" is my favorite. The rhyming flows so well, and lends itself perfectly to reading aloud. I work in the public school system, and donate copies of favorite books to all the school libraries; needless to say, all the "Galore" books are a hit, and in great demand. The illustrations in this new book are very appealing to young children, though it''s the words and how they fit together that really captivate the kids. I especially appreciate the book''s ending, with the focus on kids using their imagination.

Previously we''ve enjoyed Cars Galore as a board book, so I was eager when I heard that Peter Stein was writing a new picture book entitled Toys Galore. Just like Cars Galore, Toys Galore is also a fun and funky book!

These both fit in really well with our preschool stuff right along with the rhythm and rhyme of Go, Dog, Go! and One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish and all those other fun and ridiculously silly reads. The illustrations are definitely where the funky comes in my opinion but it is a good way. There is plenty to stare at and in our reading, my preschooler, now kindergarten was sure to point things out on every page. I think this is one that you could read again and again and find something new each and every time.

The text is great. Plenty of rhyme and rhythm through out and the words chosen are great for an early reader. My Kindergarten child can read this one alone with very limited help. So bright and brilliant, this is not necessarily a bedtime book or it might stimulate the child''s mind too much, but this is a look and then later comeback and take another look book. While I enjoyed Cars Galore as a board book, I think I like the picture book size I''m experience of Toys Galore better with so much action on each and every page.

It''s all about imagination!
