When Susan, our school librarian, was a preschool student she remembers dramatizing a piece of children’s literature. As her teacher read the story, Caps For Sale by Esphyr Slobodkin, she and her classmates were able to take on the role of the monkeys as they acted out the story. It is a fond memory that has remained with her for many years.
Caps for Sale, is a story about a peddler whose caps were pilfered by a group of monkeys as he slept. After making this discovery, the peddler became frustrated when the monkeys did not return his hats and mocked him by repeating his gestures.
The children participated in a special interactive reading of Caps for Sale with Susan during their library time. During the reading, the children were given paper hats so that they could act out the role of the monkeys. It was a lot of fun!
