Earl The Squirrel – Don Freeman, 2005
The Secret Life of Squirrels – Nancy Rose, 2014
This Is A Squirrel Taco! – Andrew Cangelose, 2018
Hello kids, and welcome! Are you feeling bright-eyed and bushy-tailed? Friends and families, it’s time for another Kids In The Cliff story time at The Wild Detectives! With fall fully underway, people aren’t the only ones planning meals to come. This weekend, we’ll read all about some hungry, nutty squirrels! Cool backstory tip: if you love Don Freeman’s classic picture book Corduroy, you’ll enjoy Earl The Squirrel, a lost treasure found by his son and published fifty years after it was written and illustrated. After the stories, stick around for hands-on fun with real acorns. So come join us at The Wild Detectives’ little house for a cozy morning 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.
