Caps for Sale: A Tale of a Peddler Some Monkeys and Their Monkey Business
This is a title exceptionally close to my heart! A few years ago, we read this title in English with a few other families with similar aged kids when exploring the Before Five in a Row curriculum. During storytime, we followed the peddler's actions just like in the book, full of drama and emotion! We also brought all our hats together, and had a competition to see which kid could balance the most number of hats on their head while walking along a straight line. It was hilarious to say the least, and we laughed so much till our insides hurt.
We love the Mandarin version of this book too and had many funny moments guessing what happens next and mimicking the peddler. We also talked about what to do when we are angry, and the kids suggested better ways to keep the hats so they wouldn't get stolen.
