Playing Hooky and Summer News

We're Playing Hooky from the Store Monday June 3rd to Go to School. Then We're Here for Your Summer Fun! Ready? We Are!
On Monday June 3rd we're speaking at Santa Clara University so the shop will be closed. Harvey Milk's historic call to "come out come out wherever you are" is one we've lived fully and we do believe it has made a difference. These days instead of college students debating why two men (or women) should be able to get married, we're spending more time talking about the joys of marriage in general. Quite a change! We'll be back in the shop on Tuesday June 4th. Speaking of June..... 


Pride, Father's Day, and Summer Vacation

We've got lots of great books, pride flags, bracelets, buttons and bumper stickers  to help celebrate pride! There is a LOT happening in San Mateo during Pride Month. The San Mateo County Fair is hosting its first ever Family Pride Day on Monday June 10th! Click here to check out info on that! Oh yeah.... and Reach And Teach will be there!

Saturday June 15th is San Mateo Pride at Central Park. This year's theme is "Rooted in Resilience." There will be entertainment, great food, art, lots of interesting exhibits, music, all in a very family-friendly atmosphere that will make you smile. Oh yeah, and Reach And Teach will be there with books, Pride bling, posters, and other fun stuff. Click here for more info.

And.... if you're in the mood for laughter, check out the You Betta Work Comedy Fiesta at the San Mateo Pride Center on June 21st! Visit for more information.

June is loaded with opportunities to celebrate. Father's Day (we've got you covered), Graduations (we've got you covered) and VACATIONS (we sure do have you covered).


Cooperative Games & More

We've brought in lots of new games for your Summer fun, including cooperative games like Gnomes at Night and Codenames Duet. For longer play days check out Photosynthesis from Blue Orange!

Jigsaw Puzzles

People really love Artifact Puzzles, laser cut wood jigsaw puzzles with whimsical pieces. Put one of these out on a table for hours of fun! Made right here in the Bay Area, they are beautiful and addictive. 

And what better way to spend a Summer day than reading a good book? We've got lots of great books for all ages. Cinderella Liberator, by the way, is FANTASTIC!! Whether you are into science fiction, graphic novels, historical fiction, activist manifestos, or giant books of puzzles, we've got you covered.
Reach And Teach Experience!
Join us for 1/2 hour to 2 hour sessions starting this Summer.

How about some hands-on Summer fun? In response to lots of requests from parents and kids, starting in July we'll be offering opportunities to learn how to create incredible devices like the robotic vehicle above, combining K'Nex with our electronic kits. Click here to let us know if you are interested.
That's our Summer news! Come see us at the County Fair, at San Mateo Pride, or at our shop in San Mateo! We're so grateful for all of our partners in peacemaking who make the world a little bit better every day. You also make our day!!!
