Caps for Sale

Texts and Tunes: Caps for Sale

One of my former students gave my daughter the classic tale by Esphyr Slobodkina, Caps for Sale. Tired of reading Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, I searched her bookshelf for the gem. To see why it's a family favorite,


Caps for Sale ($7) is a story of a peddler selling his wares — only to be taken by a gang of monkeys. As I jollied through the monkey business and acted out particular phrases with my hands and feet, my wee one giggled through the rest of the book. Now at story time, I can't get through one book before she's touting, "Caps! Caps!"

I had forgotten about this book, until my kids were introduced to it at library story time. They both like it a lot--pretend to be the monkeys.
