Bring your kids to the Oak Cliff bookstore each Sunday morning when Dallas-based artist Lanie DeLay reads several picture books for kids and leads a short discussion.

This week, Kids in the Cliff story time at The Wild Detectives says Vive la France in a tip of the hat to some of the early settlers of Oak Cliff and as a welcome to visitors ever since.

Learn a little of the language or just enjoy the stories in this French-English bilingual story time beginning with a graphically gorgeous bilingual board book edition of Les Misérables, adapted by Jennifer Adams.

Next read Madeline and the Old House in Paris, a 2013 book en English by John Bemelmans Marciano, the grandson of the original Madeline author Ludwig Bemelmans.

Read a selection from Sesyle Joslyn and John Alcorn’s spectacularly illustrated La Petite Famille, and one of the bewilderingly beautiful children’s stories translated into English in Stories 1-2-3-4, by the French Absurdist Eugene Ionesco.

Finish with Dr. Seuss’ Les Oeufs Verts Au Jambon – no translation necessary! You'll sing and learn a little French, but mostly have a lovely time ensemble.
