Caps for Sale is a timeless classic, in print for over fifty years, and beloved by generations of readers. This easy-to-read story about a peddler and a band of mischievous monkeys is filled with warmth, humor, and simplicity. Children will delight in following the peddlers efforts to outwit the monkeys in this new, enlarged, and redesigned edition, and will ask to read it again and again.
"From an old folk tale [the author] has fashioned this bright picture book, infusing it with a humor which seems to have sprung from her own hearty enjoyment of the troubles of a peddler with a abnd of monkeys."" --The New York Times
A classic that your kids will love. My kids can't decide whether to side with the tired peddlar or the cheeky monkeys when we read this. The illustrations are simple and the text is easy to read. The kids love that the peddlar finally tricks the monkeys into giving him his hats back.
Love it! I remember having this story read to me when i was a little girl. Children love the ability to predict what comes next with the repetition in the story! Im sure that we will read it over and over again and has led to various craft and literacy experiences in the classroom.
We have read this book for many years at my preschool. The children love it because it is repetitive and easy to follow. We have actually acted it out as our end of year concert item, with all children from many cultures able to have a part of a cheeky monkey.
I highly recommend it.
