Welcome, kids, neighbors, friends and families! It’s finally March and time for Kids In The Cliff weekly story time at The Wild Detectives! This weekend, with spring in mind, we’ll take a peek at the weird world of bugs and cool crawlers with special picturebooks spanning several decades. Stick around after for extra fun. So come join us at The Wild Detectives’ little house for a cozy morning this Sunday. See you in the kids’ section!

Newsflash! If you’re interested in art-centric storyimes, head downtown to the Nasher Sculpture Center over Spring Break, where Lanie DeLay will be reading extra-special books for your young artists at 11:30 Friday March 20th and Saturday the 21st , and please note that Spring Break falls one week later than usual this year. Look in the sculpture garden, or check inside the museum if it’s raining!

*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 usually 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 tutored 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.
