Kids in the Cliff – Julia Donaldson Stories

Event Details

Room On The Broom  – Julia Donaldson, 2002
The Gruffalo  – Julia Donaldson, 1999

Happy December, everyone! British children’s author Julia Donaldson made a big splash with her best-known book, The Gruffalo, in 1999 and has followed it up with rhyming family favorites ever since, often working with German illustrator Axel Scheffler (with memorable transformations into animation along the way). Donaldson is still going strong, and her newest book Animalphabet is out now. It’s gorgeously illustrated by Sharon King-Chai, and if we’re lucky, we just might get a peek at it! Come join us in the kids’ section for a cozy weekend storytime to help us usher in the last and most festive month of the year!

*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 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!

It’ll be about a 45 minute read with something 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.

She has written for Glasstire and Art&Seek, and she tutors children in early reading skills at Dealey Montessori.
