I have been eating cheerios for YEARS. As a child, my Nana would always have Cheerios in her pantry. She also had a container of sugar next to the coffee pot that I used to grab to add some in my bowl. One thing that I remember about Cheerios as a child was the neat surprises that I would sometimes find in the box. What kid doesn’t like finding a surprise in their cereal box? What I think is awesome is the FREE books that you can find in specially marked boxes of Cheerios. Thanks to MyBlogSpark, I received a Cheerios Prize Pack that included all these free books so that I could share them with my children.
My family is one that likes books. I am lucky that so far, my children have took a liking for books like I have. I remember ever since I was young, always collecting books and wanting to own my own bookstore. I LOVE these books that come in the Cheerios because they are PERFECT for my daughter Hannah. She is in first grade and we have to have her read at least 15 minutes per night. These short little stories come in handy for her reading homework assignments.
Cheerios is once again trying to encourage our children to read by inviting them to start their day off with a bowl of nutritious cereal and a new book. Cheerios has an ongoing commitment to nurturing young bodies and minds and helping families connect by fostering a shared love of reading. With that said, Cheerios will be providing more than six million children’s books, FREE inside specially marked boxes of Cheerios, through their Spoonfuls of Stories program. It is amazing to find out that over the past nine years, Cheerios has distributed almost 50 million children’s books in their cereal boxes.
This year you will find the following books in these specially marked boxes of Cheerios (both in English and Spanish):
- 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.
