Happy Mothers’ Day and welcome kids, neighbors, friends and families! Have you heard?!? Kids In The Cliff weekly storytime is back at The Wild Detectives! We’re moving the stories outdoors and bringing back the fun for curious young minds.

Who’s the best mother? How many kinds of moms are there, anyways? This weekend, we celebrate all kinds of mother figures for this special event. Through vintage to ultra-new stories and special activities and sweet crafts, we’ll celebrate the moms we love. So whether you’re in the area for brunch or making it your special destination, come join us at The Wild Detectives’ little house for a  morning of reading together this Saturday, and stick around after for extra fun. See you in the yard!

*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! 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. 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 storytimes at The Wild Detectives are Saturday mornings at 10:30, so look for our upcoming weekend events here. They’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.

At The Wild Detectives, bring your kids and infuse them with a love of reading.

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.
