Bienvenue! Welcome to a special weekend Kids In The Cliff storytime! This Sunday morning is your French kickoff to the Bastille Day festivities that take over the Bishop Arts district every 14th of July. We are looking at eye-popping work from a contemporary French graphic duo and reading about a famous French artist’s collages before enjoying the translation of every family’s favorite collaged picturebook from Eric Carle. Stick around for a quick activity time too. French speakers are welcome, but fluency is not required! So come join in with us at The Wild Detectives’ cozy little maison for cool stories this Sunday morning before the Bastille on Bishop street party heats up. 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.
