Event Details

Pick A Pine Tree – Patricia Toht and Jarvis, 2017

Happy Holidays! Hello and welcome, kids, neighbors, friends and families! It’s time for another Kids In The Cliff story time at The Wild Detectives! As everyone settles in from Thanksgiving and gets ready for festivities to come, our story time will focus on this special transition time. Note: Allumette by Tomi Ungerer (1931 – 2019) is inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s 1845 story The Match Girl, and gives a wild, funny and compassionate take on holiday shopping madness. If you have any canned goods to spare for a canned food drive, we would be most grateful; don’t worry if you do not! Afterwards, the canned goods will go to the neighborhood food pantry at the nearby Salvation Army. So come join us at The Wild Detectives’ little house for a cozy morning this Sunday. 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.
