Niblet and Ralph – Zachariah Ohora, 2018
Mog The Forgetful Cat – Judith Kerr, 1970
The Color Kittens – Margaret Wise Brown, 1949
Do you like kittens? Do you love kittens?
That’s what Harry Whittier Frees asked in the beginning of his 1934 classic picturebook Four Little Kittens. Everyone from T. S. Eliot to Edward Gorey to your little one does, so come out this weekend for a purr-fectly fun set of stories all about cats. Don’t forget to say hi to the neighborhood cats that usually can be found frolicking (or napping) in the back yard patio. 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.
