Karla (BookHive (www.bookhive.org))
Caps! Caps for Sale! Fifty cents a cap!" calls the peddler. He's got all kinds of caps to sell but this morning no one wants to buy them. So he takes a nap under a tree. When he wakes up, all his caps have gone! He looks up and sees the tree full of naughty monkeys wearing his caps. Will he ever get his caps back? This folktale has been a favorite of children because it is simple, humorous, and full of action. It can be acted out or read aloud and is perfect for beginning readers. The black ink and flat color illustrations are simple, yet effective showing the humor of the story. This is a classic that children will ask for again and again. Category: Classics; Humor; Read Aloud. Grade Level: Preschool; Primary (K-3rd grade). 1940, Harper Collins. Ages 3 to 9.
