As a mom there are some simple pleasures in life. A good cereal that your kids actually want to eat without dumping an entire bowl of sugar on it. When said cereal has a good book inside as a prize instead of a plastic toy that I am going to want to throw the first time the kids aren't looking. When said book is easy to get out of the box without having to dig through the cereal.
Cheerios has always been one of our favorite cereals, with or without milk, and right now with Cheerios Spoon Full of Stories Initiative you get one of five great children's books in each specially marked box and they will 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.
Good cereal, good books, and a good cause. You can't really beat that for breakfast in the morning!
Cheerios sent me a prize pack that included a box of Cheerios, all five of the books you will find in the specially marked Cheerios boxes and a $25 gift card to Barnes and Noble. They want to send you a prize pack too!
To enter to win, leave a comment on this post telling me about your favorite book to read to children.
Want a second entry? Check out the books offered through the Cheerios Spoon Full of Stories and let me know which one you think will be your favorite.
(Ruby's favorite is Chaucer's First Winter by Stephen Krensky),
You have until 11:59 PM (CST) on Wednesday November 17, 2010 to enter to win. Winner will be chosen at random from all entries and announced on Thursday November 18th.
Cheerios, through My Blog Spark, sent me information about the Spoon Full of Stories Initiative and the prize pack mentioned in this post
