Kids in the Cliff – Love Monster and the Last Chocolate

Event Details

Love Monster and the Last Chocolate – Rachel Bright, 2015

Kids in the Cliff is back this Valentine’s weekend with a returning neighborhood friend! Bring your little ones for Sunday morning story time at The Wild Detectives. Special guest Anastasia Munoz (artistic director of Arts Mission Oak Cliff) will read from author/illustrator Rachel Bright’s Love Monster and the Last Chocolate.

From the publisher: When Love Monster comes home from vacation, he discovers a box of chocolates on his doorstep. He knows he should share it with his friends, but what if there’s none left for him after everyone has a piece? What if they take his favorite-the double chocolate strawberry swirl? And even worse – what if the only piece left is the coffee-flavored one? Ick! In the end, Love Monster learns that sharing with friends is the sweetest treat of all.

Anastasia Munoz is the artistic and education director of Arts Mission Oak Cliff, a performing arts co-working and education center in Winnetka Heights. Munoz, a native Dallasite, has been working as a professional theatre artist and arts educator for the past 11 years. She has worked all over town: Dallas Theater Center, Shakespeare Dallas, Dallas Children’s Theater, Undermain Theatre, Watertower Theater, Theatre 3, Casa Manana, Stage West, Amphibian Productions, Ochre House, Drama Club, and Shakespeare in the Bar. She is a voice actor for FUNimation Entertainment, voicing several anime commanders, scientists, mothers, and teachers. She has played Aunt Spiker in the Dallas Children’s Theater production of James and the Giant Peach and can be found in her favorite neighborhood at Arts Mission Oak Cliff!

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.
