The Lost House – B. B. Cronin, 2016
A Lost Button – Arnold Lobel, selection from Frog And Toad Are Friends, 1970
We Found A Hat – Jon Klassen, 2016
Welcome to another weekend Kids In The Cliff storytime! This Sunday morning, we explore fun books with lost and found storylines. Lobel’s classic Frog and Toad are hilarious, Klassen’s always spot-on, and Cronin’s Lost House is not only a total joy, but it’s stunningly beautiful to boot. If you or your kids love I-spy, peekaboo or hide-and-go-seek, this one’s for you! Come find yourself or get lost in books with us at The Wild Detectives’ cozy little house this week. Next week, we celebrate the last weekend of Pride month. 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.
