This is one of my favorite children's picture books ever, because it captures the specific quality of a child's deep love for a subject. In this case, it's Sammy's love for dinosaurs, as represented by his collection of plastic dinosaurs. This isn't about materialism or toys, it's about him knowing all of their names, and their place in his heart. Lovely book.

(It was published in the U.K. as Harry and the Bucket of Dinosaurs, then got a name change to come across to the U.S. That practice in publishing, of changing the characters' names, continues to baffle me!)
