Hello hello, daddy-o! Kids, neighbors, dads, fathers, grandfathers, friends and families – welcome back, everyone! Rain or shine, it’s time again for Kids In The Cliff storytime at The Wild Detectives.

Happy Fathers’ Day! For this Sunday morning storytime, our stories celebrate the dear daddies and father figures we love with laughs, scares and tender moments. We’ll share old classics and new ones too (including a new title featuring illustrator extraordinaire Christian Robinson), and we’ll have a sweet craft activity too.  So come join us at The Wild Detectives’ little house for a cozy morning of reading together this Sunday, and stick around after for extra fun. See you in the yard! 

*Special note for parents: We’ve moved the stories outdoors and brought back the fun for curious young minds. We have plenty of covered patio space in case of rain, and 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, foreign finds, 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

Look for Kids In The Cliff weekend storytime events at The Wild Detectives.  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. 

Bring your kids and infuse them with a love of reading. All ages are welcome. 

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.
