Tonight, when we saw Zane’s drawings on the patio, at first we were a bit alarmed.

He drew a person with a sad face.

As we looked around, we saw that he also drew somebody with a happy face.

And then we got looking at them and realized the happy guy had a bunch of hats on his head, and we were reminded of the “Caps for Sale” book that he enjoys.

Which took us back to the other drawing, where we realized that he had drawn a bunch of hats on the ground, off of his head.  Ah-hah!  We asked Zane about the drawing.  The guy was unhappy because he didn’t have his caps on.  When we complimented him on doing such a good job of drawing the “caps for sale” story, he grinned ear to ear, ran inside, and retrieved one of his old caps that resembled the one the peddler wore in the story and ran around the back yard.

    He’s gonna love Five in a Row. Get Before Five in a Row too, it has some great books.
