More events at
The longest-running national literacy initiative in the country.
Every year, events are held nationwide at schools, libraries, bookstores, homes — wherever young readers and books connect! Alamosa Books will be celebrating Children's Book Week with a Book Treasure Hunt in our store. Beginning in late April, we will create a window display with clues. Then during Children's Book Week — May 13-19 — kids can hunt them down. X coins will Mark the Spot in each of the Treasure Books. Find five X coins and get a $10 gift certificate to Alamosa Books.This year's celebration will be honoring Maurice Sendak, among many others. So we're holding a Wild Things Rumpus on Saturday, May 18. Come in costume as your favorite Wild Thing. We'll make crowns and scepters for the kings and queens of the Rumpus. And we'll have a Sendak Storytime where growling and yowling will be highly encouraged.
