    A hat salesman wakes up from a nap to a startling surprise -- all of his wares have been stolen by monkeys! How can the frustrated peddler get his caps back?This is a classic of children's literature, and I can't believe it took me this long to finally read it. It is humorous and can be interactive in a readaloud with all the various motions (the peddler checking his high lineup of hats, the peddler shaking his finger at the monkeys, etc.). It also has some repetitious phrases, which children tend to enjoy in readalouds. It is a tiny bit on the longer side so it would probably work best with preschool-age and up. The illustrations fit the text nicely.

    This book is fun when a peddler is trying to sell caps and is unsuccessful. So he then decides to take a nap under a tree which is full of mischievous monkeys who make it hard for him when he wakes up.

    The peddler carries his caps on his head. When he wakes up from a nap his caps are missing. He looks up and sees a tree full of monkeys wearing his caps. He cannot figure out how to get the caps back and he get frustrated.This is a classic tale. I liked how the peddler showed his frustration and the monkeys followed suit. It teaches children about imitation. It also got the peddler back his caps. It is a fun, easy read.

    I loved making the monkey sounds when reading this to my boys.

    A fun book to read aloud to kids! The repetition of the peddler's "caps for sale!" and the interactions with the monkeys are silly and fun. The illustrations are beautiful, and seem to be reminiscent of the author's Russian heritage. All the action in the book is plausible. The monkeys seem to act slyly, craftily, and cunningly, which is how monkeys behave in real-life, as well.

    A traveling sales man decides to nap with all of his hats upon his head. As he sleeps monkeys come and steal all of his hats. The sales man is smart and get the monkey to see and do what he does. And throw the hats on the ground. This is a great story of monkey see monkey do and the clever people who can use copiers like this for thier own advantage.

    This is a silly story of a peddler who sells caps at fifty cents a piece. Unlike the other peddlers, he carries his caps stacked on his and not on his back. One day he cannot seem to sell any caps de decided to rest under a tree in the countryside and take a nap. When he wakes up he realizes that his caps are no longer on his head, but have been taken by a bunch of monkeys who are all wearing them in the tree above him. The peddler yells at the monkeys shaking his finger, then his fists, then stomping his feet only to have the monkeys mimic everything he does. Finally he gets so mad that he throws his own hat off of his head and so do the monkeys, still mimicking him. The Peddler then collects his caps, puts them back in order on top of his head and continues back to town. This would be a great book to use simply to practice prediction and as a fun end of the day read.

    Caps for Sale is a classic story about a peddler that loses all of his caps and tries to get them back from a group of monkeys. This story is a great read-aloud for lower elementary classrooms because it includes repetitive language that students enjoy being a part of. This book can also be used to discuss basic math concepts such as counting.

    Summary:This book is about a peddler who sales different colored caps. He had gray, brown, blue, and red caps. He would walk up ad down streets calling "Caps! Caps for Sale! Fifty cents a cap!" One morning for some reason he could not sale any caps, therefore had no money for lunch. He then decided to go for a walk in the country. He walked for a long time and became tired so he he decided to take a nap by a tree. He quickly fell asleep. When he woke up he was rested but before he got up he felt his head and noticed that his caps were gone. He looked everywhere and could not find them. Then he looked into the tree and there were his hats. Every branch sat a monkey and every ,monkey had on a cap. The peddler then shook his finger and told them to give back his caps, but all they could do was shake their finger back at him. The peddler became really angry but all the monkeys did was shake their finger back . Feeling quite angry the peddler stamped his feed and shook his fingers at them. They monkeys did the same. he became so angry that the took his own cap off and walked off. The monkeys then took off their caps and threw them on the ground, The peddler then picked ip all of the hats and put them in order and put them back on his head. he then slowly walked back into town. Personal:I thought this book was very colorful for using mostly prime colors. The pictures were very detailed. I thought this book would be good to use when teaching someone about manners.Extension:1. I could use this book for teaching prime colors2. I could use this to teach numbers and manners.

    This book is about a peddler who sells hats, and decides to take a nap, when he awakes he finds monkeys wearing his hats who refuse to give them back and copy his every move. He eventually gives up, and throws his hat on the ground. He gets his hat back because the monkeys were copying him. This book is great for young elementary, it is humorous, and predictable and teaches us all a good lesson.

    Caps for sale is basically about this man trying to sell his caps in order to get some money. As he is doing his rounds around town one day nobody had wanted to buy a cap from him so he took a walk into the country. He found a try and sat down beside it, he had checked his head to make sure that he had all of his checkered, grey, blue and red caps on, he takes a nap afterwards. When he wakes up he notices that his caps are missing, so he looks around the tree but they were not there. As he was pondering where they could have gone he finds monkeys in the tree above him wearing his caps. He tries to get them back making many different gestures and the monkeys copy his moves. He does not find this entertaining but instead he gets mad. After a while he gets his caps back and makes his way back home. This book is great for imagination and is fun.

    This book would be great for younger elementary students. The repetition in words would also be great for student participation. The peddler sold caps and balanced them on his head. He went through town but no one wanted to buy caps so the peddler walked towards the country and found a tree to take a nap under. When he awoke he noticed his caps missing. He looked up and saw monkeys on every branch wearing his caps. The monkeys were relentless but finally released his caps.

    The repetition of this book makes it a great book to have students work on their prediction skills by thinking about what is going to happen next. It is a fun book to read to a child or a group of students because it gives you multiple chances to act out the book and engage the students. Overall, I think this is an excellent book.

    This is one of my favorite books from when I was younger. I think it's a great book for students to guess what is going to happen next. It's a funny story that children love! I would read this to K-2nd grade.

    The peddler in this book tries to sell many caps that he stacked on top of his head. Once some monkeys come around and steal them, the peddler gets angry. The monkeys mirror his action when he takes off his own cap and throws it on the ground. This book might be good for a "what happens next" type lesson, but I felt that the story itself had no real substance.

    A hilarious, original tale about a hat peddler who stacks his hats upon his head and the monkeys who cause him trouble. A classic book that children of all ages will enjoy!

    A man who sells caps travels around with all his caps on his head. One day, he takes a nap under a tree, and a group of monkeys steals all the caps off his head. The man gets angry because his caps have been taken, and urges the monkeys to give them back. Eventually, he throws his own cap (the only one not taken) onto the ground because of his anger, and because the monkeys are imitating him, they throw their caps down as well. "Caps! Caps for sale! Fifty cents a cap!"

    It took me a long time to figure out what his book is about. Nothing happens---a peddler wants to sell his caps, he nearly loses them, mananges to regain them all, and the story ends with him still trying to sell his caps. There is no growth or change it, at least not in the physical world. If anything, he is hungrier at the end than the beginning. What's changed is understanding---on the part of the reader and, optimistically, on the part of the peddler. We have learned that true communication occurs via actions, not words; especially not words to monkeys, who don't speak the peddler's language. I realized this while sitting in a motivational meeting given by my boss, who was explaining how important it is to stay in touch with customers, even if it is to say that we haven't yet done what they wanted. The irony, of course, is that he rarely did this himself. Shakespeare's "my words fly up, my deeds remain below..." came to mind. As did this story.

    This story tells a tale of a traveling hat salesman who carries all his caps on his head. Tired from one of his journeys, the salesman decides to take a nap in a tree and wakes to find all of his caps missing. He quickly realizes that a group of monkeys has taken all of his hats and are now wearing them. The book itself incorporates wonderful repetition for children as well as number patterns.

    A man wearing his merchandise on top of his head is walking around town trying to sell his hats. He decides to walk out of town, while doing so he becomes tired and takes a nap under a tree. When he awakes he finds monkeys wearing his hats in the tree he fell asleep under. A wonderful teacher read this story to me, in second grade. Her level of excitement really made this book enticing. I love how the monkeys repeat the Peddlers frustration. I love the illustration it has a retro since of style to it. I would introduce this book to my class if I were explaining the responsibility of your things and how important it is to know where you place your most important items. I would also introduce a do what I do scenario when the Peddler stomps his feet so did the monkeys. The children would demonstrate what the monkeys were doing. I might ask them to pretend to be a monkey for a few seconds.

    A story about a man who sells caps but monkeys steal them. Could be used as a problem solving story
  • (4/5)
    This book was introduced to me by my mentor teacher. It's a fun story about problem solving. When a peddler's caps are stolen by monkeys, how is he going to get them back, especially when the monkeys won't do anything except repeat the peddler's actions. Kids love to try to figure out what the peddler should do to get his caps back. And when he does, was it purely by accident, or did he plan it all along?

    Caps for Sale is about a man who sells caps in a small town. He wears all of the caps on his head and in order with different colors with the last cap, his checked cap on the very bottom. He takes a break under a tree to get some sleep and when he wakes up his caps are missing! As he looks around he sees monkey's in the three all wearing his caps for sale! He tries many different ways to get his caps back and he finally gets them by playing a game of repeats. Once he gets the caps back he goes back into town to sell his caps. Great read and I can imagine children would love to read this and imitate the monkeys.

    This is a classic for a reason. Who among us doesn't remember being a child and copying the monkeys who copied the peddler? It has everything children love - mischief, logical consequences, a happy ending, and naps. Well, maybe kids don't love naps.Of course, I've always wondered where the monkeys came in. It never has seemed the sort of countryside you get those.

    This book is great for shared reading; but I do not really like the illustration since the colors are somewhat boring and might not draw the attention of the entire class. I still love the story.

    Genre: FolktaleAge Appropriateness: PrimaryReview: This is a good example of a folk tale because it has been passed along orally through generations and has grown out of one's imagination. The story tells of a hat peddler who is unable to sell his hats one morning. He decides to take a nap and wakes up with no hats on his head. Looking up into the trees, he sees monkeys wearing the hats he needs to sell. After many tries, the hats finally fall from the trees and he picks them up and continues on his way to town.Media: This is a good example of pencil and pen media because the figures and objects are outlined in pen then filled in with color pencil. The color adds more variety and body to the pages. By using colored pencils, there is a variety of dimensions, lines, shading, and texture present.

    This is one of my favorite books from my childhood. I still remember the nuns reading this to the class in first grade. This story is about a peddler (who sells caps) has a bad day so he decides to take a nap under a tree. He awakens to find the monkeys in the tree have taken all of his caps. The peddler then has to figure out how to outsmart the monkeys to get his caps back. TThis would be a great story to act out or have the class participate since there are some repeated lines within the story.
