Over the past eight years, Cheerios has given away more than 40 million children’s books by distributing them free inside cereal boxes and has donated $3.2 million to First Book, their non-profit partner, which provides books to children from low-income families. The program is part of Cheerios’ ongoing commitment to helping parents provide their children with a healthy, nutritional and educational foundation.
Beginning this month, Cheerios is again bringing books to the breakfast table, by providing six million children’s books free inside Cheerios boxes. The books are for children ages 3 to 8 years old, and include a new book in the popular “Trucktown” series, available only inside Cheerios boxes. And for the first time, all five books have been specially printed in both English and Spanish.
This year’s books are:
All five books are paperback and in color. And they expose your kids to Spanish, which is pretty cool.
I have recently seen these specially marked boxes in stores (the book is actually inside the box — no mailing involved!). These books will be a great addition to a stocking or a niece or nephew’s Christmas gift, especially if we get a good Cheerios sale and can get the box for under $1 (my base price for cereal).
Cheerios provided Angela the Spoonful of Stories gift pack and information through MyBlogSpark.
Cheerios and MyBlogSpark are also offering one Frugal Living NW reader the chance to win their own Spoonful of Stories gift pack. The winner will receive:
