Reading with Rover

Reading with Rover

Sometimes there's no better listener than man's best friend—especially when children are learning how to read.

Join us the first Sunday of every month as we partner with the Reading with Rover literacy program to give kids a chance to boost their reading skills and confidence by reading stories out loud to trained therapy dogs! No need to pre-register. Just bring your kids and let them pick which furry friend they want to read to.

For more details about how reading to dogs can help children increase their comfort with reading out loud, advance to higher reading levels, and even improve their confidence, enhance their social skills, and decrease shyness, visit readingwithrover.org.

Welcome to Subirdia: Sharing Our Neighborhoods with Wrens, Robins, Woodpeckers, and Other Wildlife by John Marzluff
John Marzluff

Welcome to Subirdia: Sharing Our Neighborhoods with Wrens, Robins, Woodpeckers, and Other Wildlife (YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS)

Like most of us, UW Professor of Wildlife Science John Marzluff always assumed that the greatest variety of birds could be found in remote wilderness areas. That is until his studies revealed that the most diverse bird populations were actually in suburbia. In Welcome to Suburdia, he explores why suburban areas have become such a haven for diverse bird and other animal species, and what it means for us as we share our spaces with them. To learn more about the wide array of wildlife just outside our doors, join us for what's sure to be a fascinating discussion and signing of Welcome to Suburdia with Marzluff. Copies of the book will be available for purchase at the event.


Just for Kids

Join us each Wednesday morning at 11am for lively readings of the best in new
and classic children's books.   Activities and refreshments provided.  Ages 3 – 7.


The Benefits of a Book Fair

Our different Book Fair packages offer you some fantastic benefits.


With a Book Fair at one of our stores, you can showcase student artwork and performers in our space, making your Book Fair a destination event for your school. This allows your community to shop our great selection of new, used, or bargain books; Husky Gear; supplies for school, art, or office AND have a percentage of those purchases go right back to you. (And they can take advantage of our FREE parking, FREE gift wrapping, and awesome customer service.)


With a book fair at your school, we can customize the selection of books we deliver to you, pick them up when the fair ends, and even provide a bookseller.


We even offer a hybrid store/school book fair package, so that busy families, faculty, and friends can have even more flexibility to shop during the school day, in the evening, and on weekends, which gives them even more opportunities to support your school.


And through our website, friends and family near and far can participate, supporting your school by shopping ubookstore.com. We keep track of their purchases with a unique book fair code entered at checkout.
