We Are Now Welcoming Shoppers
Without Reservations
We've been enjoying having you all back so much, we're expanding our ability to have you in our store! While we are still accepting reservations, and really recommend that you make a reservation - especially if you have four or more people in your group - we are now allowing customers to walk in to shop, so long as we have space. Obviously, we need all of our guests to adhere to our guidelines regarding social distancing, mask wearing, and disinfecting your hands so that everyone can have a fun and safe experience. Still not ready to join us in store? Don't worry! Our curbside pickup is still going strong (see our directions below) and we'll be happy to help you that way as well! As always, thank you for supporting your favorite bookstore!

New York Times bestselling author Jerry Craft returns with a companion book to New Kid, winner of the 2020 Newberry Medal, the Coretta Scott King Author Award, and the Kirkus Prize. This time, it's Jordan's friend Drew who takes center stage in another laugh-out-loud funny, powerful, and important story about being one of the few kids of color in a prestigious private school. 
The Game Board:
The latest game review from our expert, Bookie Karla!  
Game: BEAR DOWN!   
Players: 2-4

Ages: 6+
In Bear Down!, each player is a bear trying to catch as many salmon as possible.  

The board is a "cool" 3D River bed that becomes a waterfall and the most salmon are found on the slippery waterfall edge. If your bear gets pushed over the edge, you lose your fish - so watch out!

By the way, this Amigo game has only five rules so it is perfect for ages 6 and up.
