This fun, modern fairy tale is great to share with kids who think they need everything!
The King of Too Many Things is a positive power story for kids (and parents!) during the holiday season. We can get so wrapped up in gift giving that we can forget that the holidays are about spending quality time with your family and not about how much STUFF you can accumulate. My family tries to focus on holiday activities we can do together; putting up a tree, making gingerbread houses, listening to holiday music, taking night walks to check out lights – and those are really the moments that get my children (and Bob and I) excited about this time of year.
King Jasper can order his wizard to conjure up anything at all: dragons, robots, superheroes, even rainbow-colored kittens―which leads to a magical mess only he can clean up. A hilarious, modern fairy tale, The King of Too Many Things will keep readers guessing with the turn of every page, while showing how always wanting more can ultimately lead to less happiness. LOVE.
