50 Cents a Cap

Caps for Sale by Esphyr Slobodkina is one of my kids' favorite books.  Somehow, we don't own it, so we've gotten it from the library a bunch of times and I've read it out loud so often, I have the whole thing memorized.

So, you can imagine the delight of my children when my friend Candie sent us 20 (roughly) little boy-sized hats with matching outfits.  I'm not sure what kind of storage system she has at her house that allows her to have all those hats and the outfits readily accessible, but we're going to take a lesson from the peddler and store them like this:

He'll just have to keep himself very straight, so as not to upset his caps.

That is one of Brad's fave books too! Brian loved it as a kid so his parents sent a copy a month or so ago.
Suddenly Brad has a fondness for hats. I'm sure he is jealous of your new collection.

We had a bunch of hats come in to the office, and I put them all on my head and started shouting, "Caps for sale!"

They didn't get it.

Haven't they ever read the book?? It's like none of them had a childhood!

Tell Tyler that he needs to re-read the book. The red hats go on the very top. (this is Brian)
