Hello, hey there, and hiya, kids! Neighbors, friends and families: welcome! It’s time for Kids In The Cliff weekly story time at The Wild Detectives! Do you like to cuddle up and crack up at crazy cat videos? Do you watch actual cats and their weird and wacky ways? Since long before classic Tom and Jerry cartoons, humans have been amused and bewildered by our feline friends – and their interactions with mice! This weekend, we’ll read fabulously illustrated old and new stories about these curious creatures with a fun activity after. So come join us at The Wild Detectives’ little house for a cozy morning this Sunday, and please note that we will take a story time hiatus next Sunday, February 9th and return as usual the next week on the 16th. 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 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.
