A classic children's story. Takes readers back to a slower-paced time. Excellent book for the emergent reader.

A wonderful book with old-world charm. I remember seeing this book for the first time over 45 years ago on Captain Kangaroo, and I still have fun sharing it with my library full of elementary school children.

Good book for repetition and predicting. It's a fun read-aloud book, with participation. I don't know whether it's because the author/reteller is Eastern European, but the monkeys say "Tsz, tsz, tsz" rather than "Hoo hoo ha ha" like monkeys here in the good ol' USA do. It's not a rhyming book, although it has a nice rhythm. A slight problem may be that they talk about gray, brown, blue and red caps, but the colors really didn't turn out that way on the printing (blue turned out dark gray, brown turned out burnt orange, red turned out orange), so I'd be bugged using this to teach my Kindergarten class colors.

I read this book every night to my son for 2 years! He would not sleep without Caps For Sale. That child is now 27 and still talks about how he loved reading this book.
