Event Details

Hey families! Welcome back to another Kids In The Cliff weekend storytime! Do you love animals? Do you have a pet? Do you want one?!? This Sunday morning we are all about pets! The books are all about those funny family friends, both the garden variety and the really weird. So bring a picture of your pets and come join in with us at The Wild Detectives’ cozy little house for fun stories this Sunday. Heads up: Kids In The Cliff is taking a two-week break, but we’ll return Sunday August 28th for a fun late-summer back-to-school storytime. 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.
