Kids in the Cliff: Brunchtime Storytime!

Event Details

Due to our upcoming signing by Jeff Tweedy we need to have the bookstore closed on Sunday until 2pm. Therefore we’re forced to cancel this event, which was scheduled for tomorrow morning. We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause.

Pancakes, Pancakes! – Eric Carle, 1990
Pancake? – Shel Silverstein, from poetry collection Where The Sidewalk Ends, 1974
Story 1 – Eugene Ionesco, 1969, re-editioned 2012
Green Eggs and Ham – Dr. Seuss, 1960

Welcome to another weekend morning storytime! Are you hungry? Books are brain food, so get your fill with our mix of sweet, funny, informative and strange (best known for absurdist theater, Ionesco is a special treat). Whether it’s after breakfast at home or before brunch in the neighborhood, come out Sunday morning with us for fun food for thought, where friendly faces, pastries, coffee and cocoa are always on hand. See you in the kids’ section!

*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 local 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 storytime at The Wild Detectives is every Sunday morning at 11. As people who’ve been there, we strive to select themes or titles that will be interesting enough to pique not only children’s, but also the attending adults’ curiosity. It’ll be about a 30-45 minute read each time with something different and 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.

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.
