Great Monday Give: Caps for Sale

Hey, hey, hey. Winning time is here again. The Great Monday Give for this week is an ex-library/ hard/ Reading Rainbow copy of Caps for Sale by Esphyr Slobodkina. Just comment on this post before midnight ~ Sunday, June 22, and you will be eligible to win this classic tale of monkeys and mayhem.

Last week's winner (in case you were tuning in to find out) is Naomi who has possibly the prettiest banner this side of Sunday. Congrats sista! Please e-mail me your info post-haste to webe@soon.com, and I will rush out your prize ASAP via the slow boat to China.

I like to give books away because I'm like that. If I find an awesome classic for a song, I like to share the wealth rather than profit from it. So come back every Monday and comment, and soon you too could be the lucky winner of a used (but awesome) children's classic!

I'm so glad I stumbled upon your blog! I have a serious weakness for vintage children's books. "Caps for Sale" is one I remember from my own nursery school days, so I'm salivating! I can picture the illustrations right now...

I love this blog because I too love children's books, old and new. Reading Rainbow was a staple for me growing up!

I remember this from my childhood bookshelf and I'm wondering what happened to it! This happens to me often now that my kids can read books printed on something other than cardboard. I want to read them all of the books I loved as a child, but alas - not all seem to have survived....

Love it! We have a collection (small but growing) of vintage books too -- mostly about kitty cats. But now that my kiddies are getting older I need books with more challenging texts!

Kate said...

I'd love to read this to my boys. We have a version of it on a CD, but this would be a great addition to our collection. Thank you!

Celeste said...

This is my almost-two-year-old sons's favorite book, and I just keep re-checking it out of the library. I would love to have our own copy!

Kim said...

I just found this blog. How neat. I am a homeschooling mom who loves classic children's stories. I remember this book as a child. I look forward to reading your blog more.

Love this book! I even wrote about you and this book on my blog. It was a great childhood classic for me. Even if I don't win I'll definitely be out looking for a copy.

Just found your blog this week via...I can't remember. Sorry!
But what an amazing resource. I am an illustrator and am always inspired by vintage books.

Keep up the good work, and thanks!

Tara said...

I just stumble upon your blog and love it. My son is 1-1/2 and we have started a collection of vintage books.

I just found your site via Ohdeedoh -- it is fabulous. My twin girls will be a year old in a couple of weeks, and they're finally starting to enjoy good books (rather than try to eat them). Thanks for the great blog!

Allison said...

I found your blog through AT Ohdeedoh and I'm so glad I did! There are some books here that I used to read as a kid that belonged to my parents and aunts and uncles. I'd love to find them again...but until then, I'd love to win this one! Thanks!

This is the first book I ever remember my mom reading to me - it was her favorite when she was a little girl and naturally became and still is one of mine.
