Welcome, kids, neighbors, friends and families! It’s time for Kids In The Cliff weekly story time at The Wild Detectives! This weekend, we’ll take a deep dive with picturebooks featuring the fabulous collage illustrations of Christian Robinson, an important contemporary voice in the world of children’s literature. Stick around after for extra fun. So come join us at The Wild Detectives’ little house for a cozy morning this Sunday. 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 usually 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 tutored children in early reading skills at Dealey Montessori. If you’re interested in art-centric storyimes, head to the Nasher Sculpture Center over Spring Break, where she’ll be reading extra-special books for your young artists. When she isn’t looking at art or reading with kids, she’s reading about art or looking for a new read.
