SPURS GIVE RELEASES NEW CHILDREN’S BOOK AS PART OF SUMMER WHAT’CHA READING CHALLENGE, PRESENTED BY WHATABURGER
The Free Illustrated Book, Starring Coyote’s Family, Highlights the Power of Togetherness
SAN ANTONIO (June 15, 2020) – Spurs Give, in partnership with Whataburger, today announced the release of a free digital children’s book, “The Coyote Family Stays Home!”. The new illustrated book, created to help children understand and come to terms with changes resulting from COVID-19, is available now at spursgive.org/reading in both English and Spanish.
The book will serve as a resource for all family members as they continue to cope with difficult emotions like anxiety. With the help of The Coyote and his family, “The Coyote Family Stays Home!” highlights the power of togetherness during emotional times while teaching young children preventive measures to help them stay safe and informed.
The children’s story will be a part of the Spurs Give Summer What’cha Reading Challenge, presented by Whataburger, a new program that encourages students to read at least five books between now and July 13. Children interested in participating can submit their book titles at spursgive.org/reading for a chance to win prizes, including autographed Spurs memorabilia, Whataburger for a year, and fun Coyote prize packs.
“Whataburger is honored to partner with the Spurs on this wonderful effort,” said Pam Cox, Whataburger Vice President of Human Resources and Brand Communication. “We hope the book will be a helpful resource and a way to bring families closer together during this time.”
In partnership with the Spurs Give Summer What’cha Reading Challenge, the San Antonio Public Libraries have created a curated list of free downloadable books, many of which tackle racial inequality, available at guides.mysapl.org/spurs.
