Welcome back to another weekend morning story time! It’s the last weekend of April, and that means May is just around the corner. Did you know that for generations May 1st was called “moving day” in New York City? This was especially true in the neighborhoods like the Lower East Side and others that were particularly more inhabited by people (often newly arrived in the United States) renting rooms or apartments. Whether you’re an adventurous modern nomad, know someone who is or have a little one who may be nervous about moving, this Sunday, come join us at The Wild Detectives’ little house with stories that are all about homes and movers and shakers – past and present. 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.

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.
