   Classic Story!
My 2 year old loves this story and we read it often. The story is about a peddler who walks through town with all the caps on his head trying to sell them. Since no one was buying them, he took a nap by a tree, only to discover that a bunch of mischievous monkeys had taken them and imitated his angry actions. We act it out, the stamping, fist shaking and tsk tsk sound, which makes it really fun to read. My daughter loves to predict what the monkeys will do next, and I really like the rhythmic patterns to the story and the predictability of it. My daughter loves to predict what the monkeys will next. The illustrations are vintage and simple, which I really like because it's such a different style from all newer children's books. I also use this book in my second year class to recognize story elements and we act it out as well. Highly recommended and it's a classic!

   Good intro to a classic story for grab-happy kids, but I miss the original full version
I love this story and this little board book got my son hooked as well, but as others have mentioned, it is abridged and lacks some of the familiar rhythms that makes the original story so great. When my son stops trying to tear paper pages apart, we will definitely switch to the original version.

   Caps...caps for sale...50 cents a cap! Never gets old, does it?
I still remember Captain Kangaroo reading this book on his morning show for the first time when I was five years old. I have NEVER forgotten that and have introduced this book to all my children and now my grandchildren. It is one of my all-time favorite books and is meant to read aloud, with full voice drama and hand motions... Caps... caps for sale...50 cents a cap...

   A Classic in our house! Read over and over.
We love this book. We love it. It is probably in the top 25 and we have 150+ books. My kids like lots of books so that, in my opinion, a good book is when I am excited to read it to them, and this is one of them. My children like to imitate what the man and the monkeys do in the book and that really keeps them coming back to this book again and again. So glad we found this one! !

I have read this book since it was first introduced to me in the elementary school! I bought it and told my grandchildren how great a book this is and how I came to love it. Then fell in love with it and I always want to read it over and over again to them! Love classic books :

   Great Book & Even Greater Time Spent w/ My Daughter
There are few things as interesting as reading a fun and interesting book with your kiddo. This book is a classic that I remember from my childhood and I am grateful to share it now with my daughter. She read it to me and was some of the sweetest time we spent together. Nostalgia from my childhood paired excitement for her and the potential in front of her filled my heart as we sat in the lamplight enjoying this classic together.

   WE LOVE THIS BOOK! Fun for parents and children alike. Highly recommend!
I was excited to share the story of Caps for Sale with my 3 year old because I was a big fan of the book. It did not fail to impress. My daughter was very happy during the first reading. We have read it every night for the past few weeks and she loves it. She loves to act out all of the Peddler's and the monkeys' actions, which entertains anyone who happens to be nearby at storytime, and always ends with her dissolving into tears of laughter. It was a lot of fun! Caps for Sale is a great place to buy for kids of all ages.

   Timeless Tale
Our granddaughter lives on the other side of the country so she reads her stories on the phone. My own kids were fond of this book when they were young. She always chooses the first story we read. She laughs at the antics of the monkeys and finishes the sentence. The story is cute and we enjoy seeing it through our granddaughter's eyes. The book is very good.
