Caps For Sale
Item Call Number:E SLOBO
A band of mischievous monkeys steals every one of a peddler's caps while he takes a nap under a tree.
Questions to talk about with your child:
What was the man selling? What were the colors of all his hats?
Can you count the hats he wore on his head?
How did he feel when he lost the hats?
What did the monkeys do in the story? What did you think of the monkeys?
How did he get his hats back?
Why didn't the man sell any hats?
Fun things to do together:
Make a hat from newspaper or other material. http://www.dltk-kids.com/crafts/columbus/newspaper_sailors_hats.htm
Act out the story with the child acting as both the peddler and the monkey.
Balance several soft things on your head and see how far you can go.
Cut out twenty circles of different colors from construction paper and move the circles around to see how many patterns you can create.
Count the circles and sort them by color.
