Your Baby’s First Word Will Be DADA! – Jimmy Fallon, 2015
Dear dads, daddies, dadas, fathers, grandpas! Welcome one and all to a super-special Kids In The Cliff storytime! This Sunday morning, all of our stories feature fathers! From fun and funny to fearsome to flat-out confused, these daddy-Os will keep the kids on their toes. So whether you’re missing your dear old dad or bringing Pops along, come join us at The Wild Detectives’ little house this week for a sweet start to your Sunday funday. 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.
