From the Spurs Organization’s press release:

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 in both English and Spanish.

As families continue to cope with difficult emotions caused by the coronavirus pandemic, this digital book focuses on togetherness, emotional stress, staying informed, and preventative measures.

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 for a chance to win prizes, including autographed Spurs memorabilia, Whataburger for a year, and fun Coyote prize packs.
