Kids in the Cliff: Telephones Storytime!

Event Details

Jackrabbit McCabe and the Electric Telegraph – Lucy Margaret Rozier, 2015
Telephone – Mac Barnett, 2014
The Lonely Phonebooth – Peter Ackerman, 2010

Put down your screens and gather around for an unusual weekend morning story time. March 3, 1847 was the birthday of inventor Alexander Graham Bell, and March 11, 1876 was the fateful day he finally transmitted his voice clearly through that world-changing invention: the telephone. This edition of Kids In The Cliff’s stories all relate to that gadget, and when we’re done reading, the kids will get to see a model of an early telephone! Spoiler: it looks nothing like a flat rectangle. 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.
