I wasn't too big a fan of Sherman Crunchley, but I wanted to do a storytime with The Magic Hat and Caps for Sale. I might have mentioned this before but I love asking the kids to be my monkeys in Caps for Sale. There is nothing like a classroom full of kids enthusiastically playing along-- and the "tsk, tsk, tsk" sounds great from so many little mouths. Any book recommendations for replacing Sherman the next time I do this storytime?
