Not A Box – Antoinette Portis, 2006
Welcome one and all to a very, very special Kids In The Cliff event day! This Sunday morning at 10:30, Teatro Dallas will be coming to The Wild Detectives to put on a play for children before story time usually begins. Tlali: When We Were Earth is a free presentation of an approximately 30 to 45-minute original production for children that involves recycling, puppetry, costumes and instruments. After the play concludes, we will have story time with The Princess and the Warrior, a book specially recommended by Teatro Dallas to tie in with the performance, and if time permits, we will have more related reading and fun as well. So come join us at The Wild Detectives’ little house early this week for an engaging Sunday morning with books and performing arts. See you there!
*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.
