Kids in the Cliff - Joke Day

Event Details

Do you know what’s funnier than April Fools? Joke Day. Just kidding. No, really. Really! July First is International Joke Day. Which no one’s ever heard of, which makes it kind of a …

This week, Kids In The Cliff storytime at The Wild Detectives is all about the laughs. If your little ones like giggling their heads off or guffawing at gags, join us for a laugh at the pranks in store for them. We’ll read kid-fave The Book With No Pictures by The Office’s B. J. Novak, some vintage silly stunts from James Marshall’s hilarious hippos George and Martha, and Triangle from Mac Barnett and Jon Klassen, in which Triangle plays a wicked trick on his friend Square…but who has the last laugh?!?

Your kids!!!  Come early for a good spot and join in for joshing and jokes, maybe even some knock-knock knockoffs.

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 tutors 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.

It’ll be about a 30-45 minute read with a short discussion/activity with 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.
