“Wake up, Alice dear,” said her sister. “Why, what a long sleep you’ve had!”

Hello, all you early risers and sleepyheads! Welcome! It’s time for another Kids In The Cliff weekend storytime at The Wild Detectives! Lewis Carroll wrote the quintessential dream story Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland in 1865, and many have followed in his footsteps. This weekend, we’ll read tales take place when our eyes are shut and our minds are open. We’ll even get to listen to a song about Alice on a record player, so come join in with us at The Wild Detectives’ cozy little house for fun stories 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 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.
