This second edition of Too Much Christmas, by Sara McDaris, features joyful illustrations by Paul Rufe exploring the struggle a young boy feels when waiting for Christmas to arrive.

Joey is tired of waiting – there is too much to do, and he only wants to open his presents. Joey’s mother and he find a mouse in the bird feed. She uses this discovery to introduce Joey to Saint Francis. When a perfectly timed Nativity gift set arrives, Joey finds a new spirit, which gets him through the last days of his wait for Christmas.
