Land ho, kids! Neighbors, friends and families: welcome! It’s time for Kids In The Cliff weekly story time at The Wild Detectives! This weekend, while summer’s sun and fun is still far away, we’ll imagine we’re there already as we read stories with sand, seas, boats and stuff that floats. Plus, we’ll have a fun activity to follow!  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.
