Cheerios Spoonfuls of Stories Giveaway CLOSED

Journeys to outer space, talking animals, enchanted castles – the world of reading has no limits! Books can offer a child imaginary and thought provoking experiences unlike any other, and there is so much reward in helping a child discover the joy of reading.

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. As part of its ongoing commitment to nurturing young bodies and minds and helping families connect by fostering a shared love of reading, 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
  • 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
  • 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!
  • 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
                • 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
                • 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.







                 


                We've read all these books and the boys enjoyed them all.  Bryan also enjoyed the box of Cheerios, even having them a desert one night this week!!

                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.

                To learn more about the Spoonfuls of Stories program or to donate to First Book, visit www.spoonfulsofstories.com beginning November 1. 


                Enter to win: 
                A prize pack that includes a $25 gift card to Barnes & Noble, all five of the new in-pack titles and a box of Cheerios.
