    One Reply to “Buy My Hats!”

    1. I absolutely adored this book. The plot was simple, but very clever. No one would buy the hats they were selling, and the guys could not figure out why. They had almost given up till it started raining. Once it had started raining everyone was buying left and right. It proves that end the end people will buy what they need. The story was very cute and I would love to discuss with the children how they felt about the ending of the story. I also liked the usage of numbers there were many different [...]

    2. First sentence: Buy my hats! Monday. Down at the City Market, Frank and Carl got ready to sell some hats. "Step right up," said Carl. "Who wants to buy a hat?" But nobody did. Frank and Carl sold only ONE hat all day. Premise/plot: Readers spend a week with Frank and Carl as they try to sell hats. All week long, Frank and Carl witness other businesses succeed while theirs fails. Every day they ask the more successful business their SECRET for successevery day they hear something new. (For exampl [...]

    3. Interesting to have a great children's book that makes the concept of supply and demand "real" for small children, yet the actual book itself is not easy to attain, as it is in short supply. Out of print.

    4. Buy My Hats!Horowitz, Dave. Buy My Hats!. Putnam. June 2010. F. ISBN 978-0-399-25275-4. $16.99.Gr K-2When Frank and Carl set up a hat stand at the City Market, they expect to sell lots of hats. They are disappointed however, and watch sadly on as their neighbors make money hand over fist. Monkey sells skateboards, Pig sells Cup O' Mud and sheep sells Remote Control Robot Cell Phones. When Frank and Carl ask their neighbors for the secret to success, they're repeatedly told that the products are [...]

    5. “Buy My Hats!” is a great how-to book for prospective business owners who just happen to be between the ages of 5 and 8 years of age.Frank and Carl are hat salesmen, but they can’t seem to sell very many hats. Customers are buying skateboards, Cup(s) O’ Mud, and remote control robot cell phones but nobody wants to buy a hat. What are Frank and Carl going to do? With funny personified animals and simple text Horowitz briefly teaches kids some important business tips about marketing, consu [...]

    6. In the City Market, Frank and Carly (a bear and a fish) set up a stand to sell hats. Unfortunately, their hats don’t sell despite trying the techniques from other sellers (advertising). Finally, when it starts raining, their hats are in demand. However, it was strange that they say they don’t know why their hats are selling, but they wrote “they’re rainproof” on their stall after it started raining. This would be useful for introducing supply vs. demand or advertising techniques. The i [...]

    7. Frank and Carl set up a hatstand at the City Market. Problem is, they aren't selling any hats. They slash the prices but still, no hat sales. The Monkey next door is selling out of skateboards. Of course, everyone wants skateboards! And then there's Pig's Cup-O-Mud. Who can resist a Cup-O-Mud?On Friday it starts to rain. Now everyone wants hats! Maybe next week they should sell umbrellas, too.A humorous story, highly recommended for storytime.

    8. Grades 2-5. Very simple story about a bear and a fish who cannot seem to sell any of their hats. Other vendors are doing gangbusters and attribute their success to different marketing techniques. Finally the "perfect storm" presents itself and the hat salesmen are able to find buyers for their product. Great for a unit on economics that goes beyond simple supply and demand.

    9. This was a cute story about two aspiring businessmen (well, a business bear and a business fish) who can't quite figure out the secret of success. In the end, a rainstorm comes to their aid.We reread this one several times, and I think the kids liked the ads for the protagonists' competitors and all the conversations taking place on the pictures as much as anything.

    10. This is cute and colorful and teaches about the effects of advertising and why people choose to buy certain products and not others. I can't think of too many other picture books that are both cute and colorful and teach about a market economy! My favorite part, though, was the author's note on the back flap about how he came up with the idea for this story.

    11. This is an entertaining story about the capricious whims of the market, with supply and demand being depicted against the fickleness of fads. The narrative is entertaining to read aloud and the illustrations are cartoonish and colorful. We enjoyed reading this book together and we thought the ending was quite humorous.

    12. A delightful story of two friends who set up a hat stand only to discover that no one will buy their hats. Everyone buys skateboards, remote control robot phones, even cups o' mud, but not hats! Their fortunes change when a rainstorms hits and then everyone wants what they are selling. A lovely story and great introduction to the economics of a free market!Awesome illustrations.

    13. Poor Frank and Carl just aren't moving the merchandise. Is it their product? Their advertising? Their marketing campaign? Could be a funny introduction to the idea of sales for a class learning about supply, demand, goods, services, wants and needs or just a funny read aloud with big, bold illustrations that add to the fun.

    14. I loved this book because it was the first one I came across that could be used to teach the concept of consumer needs/demands and producers! It also has some math involved so students could be solving addition and subtraction problems as well throughout the book.

    15. It is unfortunate that this book is difficult to locate (out-of-print) because it is a delightful book that helps to explain supply and demand to kids in a humorous way. The pictures are a lot of fun and the characters are entertaining. Great book!

    16. "Buy My Hats" presents a great look at advertising, selling, and buying. Frank and Carl spend a full week attempting to sell hats while other products go like hot cakes all around them. A fun read and a great way to show kids why they buy and how they are convinced to buy.

    17. Frank and Carl have a lot of hats to sell, but no one seems to want to buy themat is until it rains!

    18. Recommended by kids for NYRA 2013, this book perhaps in intended to introduce some business concepts to young readers, but I wonder if it is effective?

    19. My son really enjoyed this book, so much so that we might have to buy it. A really cute book to read out loud with younger kids.

    20. cute fun book about selling hats. I'm not sure what the students can learn about this book but it was a cute book.

    21. Read this with my son. Super cute- it kept me entertained as an adult. He picked it out at his school library. I enjoyed the illustrations as well.

    22. Cute and slightly silly. Could work well with a Letter "H" storytime, or a k-2 grade assignment on advertisement and marketing :)
