CAPS FOR SALE by Esphyr Slobonkina
Caps for Sale: A Tale of a Peddler, Some... Caps for Sale: A Tale of a Peddler, Some Monkeys and Their Monkey Business - Esphyr Slobodkina
  The peddler carries his caps on his head. When he wakes up from a nap his caps are missing. He looks up and sees a tree full of monkeys wearing his caps. He cannot figure out how to get the caps back and he get frustrated.

This is a classic tale. I liked how the peddler showed his frustration and the monkeys followed suit. It teaches children about imitation. It also got the peddler back his caps. It is a fun, easy read.

ANATOLE by Eve Titus
Anatole - Eve Titus,Paul Galdone
  Anatole is a mouse who goes into the human world at night to find food for his family. One night he overhears what humans think about mice and decides he will help instead of being a freeloader. He goes to the cheese factory and rates their cheeses, leaving notes on how to improve them. The cheese factory increases its sales. Anatole remains anonymous.

I enjoyed this story. It is fun. I like Anatole's solution and his comments on the cheese. I think the Disney movie, Ratatouille, is somewhat based on this book. The kids will enjoy it

CECILY G. AND THE NINE MONKEYS by H. A. Rey
CURIOUS GEORGE CECILY G AND 9 MONKEYS CL - H. A. Rey, Louise Borden (Afterword), Louise W Borden (Afterword)
 
  Cecily Giraffe is alone and George and his family are homeless. They meet and play. Cecily has an idea that George and his family can live with her.

It's a cute story full of whimsy . This is the first story where Curious George appears before he goes off on his own. It's a good story to teach children about pretend and working together to help each other.

At the end of the book is a short biography of the author and his wife. I enjoyed that more. It helps children to learn more of the world and the past.

BOOKS FOR CHILDREN OF THE WORLD: THE STORY OF JELLA LEPMAN by Sydelle Pearl
Books for Children of the World: The Story of Jella Lepman - Sydelle Pearl,Danlyn Iantorno
  After WWII Jella Lepman returns to Germany to help determine what the children need. She learns they want books. This is the story of how she gets books into the hands of the children.

I enjoyed this book. I found it interesting how she found funding to start a library. I also liked that she took the initiative to get books printed that she could give to the children. The book was Ferdinand the Bull, which was a favorite of mine from childhood.

I recommend this book for 7-10 year olds.
