Event Details

Kids In The Cliff storytime at The Wild Detectives is every Sunday morning at 11, and this week it’s all about anthropomorphized animals finding fall fun and surprises. This week’s inspiration? Today is the last day of the State Fair! Whether you’re saving your first visit, are all “faired out” for the season or prefer a cozier kind of kid fun, come join our weekend fun with stories that each involve a trip to the fair.

*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 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!

It’ll be about a 45 minute read with something 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 tutors children in early reading skills at Dealey Montessori. When she isn’t looking at art or reading with kids, she’s reading about art or looking for a new read.
