    There once was a peddler who sold capshe walked through town calling Caps, caps for sale, fifty cents a cap A timeless classic that we have probably read 100 times and one of all of our favorite books This time I read it to my daughter s class I had them play the role of the monkeys and they had much fun acting out their parts And in the end the peddler walked back to town calling caps, caps for sale, 50 cents a cap.

    A classic story that I first remember seeing on Reading Rainbow many moons ago A hat peddler travels through town, trying to sell his wares With no one around to make a purchase, he decides to take a nap under a tree and hope that sales will pick up in the afternoon However, upon waking up, his hats of all colours are gone He soon locates the thieves in the same tree that allowed him to rest, but it will take some cunning behaviours to ensure that the hats return to the peddler in time for h A classic story that I first remember seeing on Reading Rainbow many moons ago A hat peddler travels through town, trying to sell his wares With no one around to make a purchase, he decides to take a nap under a tree and hope that sales will pick up in the afternoon However, upon waking up, his hats of all colours are gone He soon locates the thieves in the same tree that allowed him to rest, but it will take some cunning behaviours to ensure that the hats return to the peddler in time for him to make a few sales before the sun goes down Neo laughed when he saw what happened to the peddler and got a chuckle out of how things were handled He asked me why we do not see hat peddlers walking around and selling things in town I reminded him of the commercialization of the big box stores that try to stomp out the little guy He nodded and went back to looking for peddlers on the sidewalk

    No fancy computer generated illustrations just a bright, limited palette No characters with their own TV show No farting dogs, no cool pullouts or lift the flaps Just a simple little story about a peddler, some monkeys and their monkey business But for 60 years kids have read and loved this story I have never had a group of kids who didn t have fun shaking their fingers and stomping their feet along with the monkeys.This is what a true classic is all about

    Well, you could have knocked me over with a feather after I read this one to the kids I checked out Caps for Sale from the library because two of my friends rated this book highly, but I didn t read the book before I checked it out I stuck it in my bag, along with Once Upon a Royal Superbaby, and on the bus ride home I read the book Oh, no, I thought, the kids are going to think this is lame There s no way this is going to be able to compete with that superbaby book Huh Shows what I kno Well, you could have knocked me over with a feather after I read this one to the kids I checked out Caps for Sale from the library because two of my friends rated this book highly, but I didn t read the book before I checked it out I stuck it in my bag, along with Once Upon a Royal Superbaby, and on the bus ride home I read the book Oh, no, I thought, the kids are going to think this is lame There s no way this is going to be able to compete with that superbaby book Huh Shows what I know The kids loved this book I thought my nephew was going to have some sort of hemorrhage from laughing so hard, and thehe laughed, themy niece laughed Thethe kids laughed, themy sister and I laughed Pretty soon, it was a big old comedy hour in the car which is where we read this book I could not believe that a quaint little book from 1947, with a simple little story and simple little drawings could elicit such joy from those kids My sister and I looked at each other in amazement, and I shrugged and said, I know, right The kids made me read Caps for Sale five times, and then they took it home so my sister could read it to them again later Who da thunk it
