    Event Details

    Come join us this Sunday morning for Kids In The Cliff storytime at The Wild Detectives. It’s the last weekend in August, which means the start of preschool, kindergarten or back-to-school time for many. Get ready with a relaxing storytime that’s all about school.

    We’ll read Planet Kindergarten by Sue Ganz-Scmitt, We’re Going To Be Friends by Jack White (yes, that one), and A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To School by French duo Davide Cali and Benjamin Chaud. Last, as August marks the coming of school for some families, we are looking at fun books with numbers or ABCs every weekend this month! So to end, we’ll refresh our skills, this time with Charley Harper’s ABCs. This smart 2008 board book from Ammo Books uses graphics and paintings of mid-century artist Harper to great effect, perfect for even the youngest book lovers.

    It’ll be about a 45 minute read with something fun for the kids–that’s going to be interesting, we can’t wait to see what they come up with.

    All ages are welcome.

    On Sunday mornings, bring your kids and infuse them with a love of reading.

    *Special note for parents: As usual, we’ll have related extra books on hand in case you are looking for other excellent picture books we recommend. Particular emphasis is placed on striking illustrations, great graphic design or standout writing. Titles may be brand new, old treasures, from home, our Kids’ Section or the library, but they are always picked with love and a sense of adventure.  If there’s a book you’d love, consider our ordering service!

    Kids In The Cliff is organized by Lanie DeLay, who has worked at Dallas Contemporary, the Dallas Public Library, Hamon Arts Library at SMU, at area preschools and the School For The Blind in Austin. She has written for Glasstire and Art&Seek, and she tutors children in early reading skills at Dealey Montessori. When she isn’t looking at art or reading with kids, she’s reading about art or looking for a new read.
