Caps For Sale By: Esphyr Slobodkina
Caps for sale is a classic children's book that I distinctly remember reading when I was a child at school. This is a tale of a peddler trying to sell caps that he stacks rather high on his head. When he has not sold a cap he decides to take a walk into the country and take a nap. He wakes up with his caps missing and finds his caps up in a tree on some monkeys! The monkeys are rather silly and play a little game of monkey see monkey do with the peddler until he becomes so upset that he throws his own cap down and the monkeys do the same. The peddler piles all the caps back onto his head and heads to town calling "Caps! Caps for sale! Fifty cents a cap."
This book is simple, repetitive and a lot of silly fun! Enjoy this classic story with your children today!
