Giveaway: Cheerios prize pack including Barnes and Nobles Gift Card

One of the dearest things to me in my children’s education is teaching them to read and giving them a love for great books. We do a lot of reading in this homeschool household so I was so happy to be a part in spreading the word about Cheerios Spoonful of Stories.

To help grow kids’ love of reading at a young age, this fall Cheerios is once again inviting families to start the day with a nutritious breakfast and a new book. Cheerios will provide more than six million children’s books, free inside Cheerios boxes, through its Spoonfuls of Stories program. Over the past nine years, Cheerios has distributed almost 50 million children’s books in-pack.

This year’s free in-pack book offerings, appropriate for children ages three to eight and written in both English and Spanish, include:

  • All the World, by Liz Garton Scanlon and illustrated by Marla Frazee, which discusses the many wonderful things a child can encounter in the world as well as the commonalities all the world shares.
  • Chaucer’s First Winter, by Stephen Krensky and illustrated by Henry Cole, follows a bear named Chaucer, who knows he is supposed to sleep through the winter but feels it’s much more fun to stay up and play.
  • Jump!, by Scott M. Fischer, chronicles the adventures of a bug, a frog, a cat, a hound, a crocodile, a shark, and a whale, who all love to jump!
  • No T. Rex in the Library, by Toni Buzzeo and illustrated by Sachiko Yoshikawa, is a story about a little girl named Tess and her adventures in the library with a boisterous T-Rex.
  • The Purple Kangaroo, by comedian Michael Ian Black and illustrated by Peter Brown, which is a vivid and humor-filled story that tricks the reader into thinking about a purple kangaroo.

As studies have consistently shown, children with greater access to books and other print materials are more successful in school and in life. However, one recent study revealed that in low-income neighborhoods, there is only about one age-appropriate book for every 300 children,* a statistic that exposes one of the biggest barriers affecting literacy today – lack of access to books. In an effort to help combat this issue, Cheerios, as part of its Spoonfuls of Stories initiative, will also make a $300,000 financial donation to First Book, an award-winning national nonprofit that helps get books into the hands of children in need. Cheerios has donated more than $3.5 million to First Book over the past nine years.

You can visit Spoonfuls of Stories to learn more about this great program.

    My girls’ favorite book right now is actually a brand new little book I received to review this month, called “The Christmas Gift”, by R. William Bennett. They plus my husband all read the book quickly before I even had a chance to read it! It’s a quick read; about an hour will do it. We have loved this sweet book!

    As a kid I loved to read, its so hard to pick which book was my favorite. I love How the Grinch Stole Christmas, my dad had this memorized from reading to to me so many times. I think he still does!

    My favorite book as a child was the classic “Where the Wild Things Are”.

    It’s for an older child, but definitely I Capture the Castle. It is SUCH a great book, for high school to adults — maybe even junior high.

  8. Lynda E. says

    The Velveteen Rabbit. I always tell my husband that’s what happened to him – I loved him so much I loved all his hair off!

  9. Renee Richardson says

    I love Green Eggs and Ham. As a kid I remember my mom making my sister and I ham and putting green dye in our scrambles eggs after reading the book to us. It has always been a great memory. Thanks for the great giveaway 🙂
