Welcome back to weekend morning story time! It’s the last day of March, and you know what that means: tricks up everyone’s sleeves tomorrow, and we’re here to help you get in the fun spirit. This sweet edition of Kids In The Cliff’s stories all relate to playful pranks, and when we’re done reading, the kids will get to hear a very special recorded reading of Smart by the inimitable Shel Silverstein! 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.
