Cheerios 100,000 Book Giveaway



Access to books is essential to reading development. However, did you know that over 80 percent of childcare centers serving low-income children lack age-appropriate books? And a recent study shows that the ratio of books per child in middle income neighborhoods is 13 to 1, while in low-income neighborhoods, the ratio is 1 age-appropriate book for every 300 children. The Cheerios family of cereals, First Book and Jon Scieszka, author of the popular "Trucktown" series and other children´s books, have joined together to deliver 100,000 books to community-based programs serving children in need - and we´d love your help! All you have to do is go online with your child and test your com
bined knowledge of children´s books by answering trivia questions related to "Trucktown" and other great children´s books. For every trivia question answered correctly, you can cast one vote for the state you would like to receive books. The five states receiving the most votes will get 20,000 books each, for a total of 100,000 books. Visitwww.FirstBook.org/Scieszka to test your knowledge and start voting.

Be apart of it and win an assortment of books from Cheerios, one of the many varieties of Cheerios cereals and a $25 gift card to Barnes & Noble.

Visit Cheerios®100,000 Book Giveaway! and answer the trivia questions featured in this challenge to help select the states that will receive new books for local kids.
