Monkey See, Monkey Do

One book missing from our school library was CAPS FOR SALE written and illustrated by Esphyr Slobodkina. I’m sure somewhere along the way it was either lost or damaged and was never replaced. The horror of it all!


This book is a classic! Its simple text and story line are perfect for preschoolers and kindergarteners. Esphyr Slobodkina’s narrative and illustrations capture the attention of young readers and keep it with the silly antics of the monkeys as the peddler tries to retrieve his caps. In just 672 words, the author included color concepts, left-right directions, repetition, and a mixture of just-right ingredients to produce an entertaining story that begs to be read again and again.

CAPS FOR SALE is no longer missing from the shelves of our library, and it shouldn’t be missing from yours!
