Cheerio's Spoonfuls of Stories(review and GIVEAWAY)



Cheerios has made a significant commitment to Children's Literacy with with Spoonfuls of Stories Program. 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.

Beginning this month, Cheerios is providing 6 million Children's books free in boxes of Cheerios! This year there are 5 new books and each one is in both English and Spanish. The books are geared towards children ages 3-8 years old.
Here is my take on these 5 books along with some information provided by MyBlogSpark:

Junkyard Fort was written by Jon Scieszka, and illustrated by David Shannon, Loren Long and Dave Gordon. This book is about the Trucktown characters, like Gabriella, Jack, Melvin, Ted, Lucy and more who all work together to build a fort. They venture out in the junkyard to find parts to build their fort. The pictures are too cute and the book reminds me somewhat of the Cars movie. Their are Monster trucks, ice cream trucks, dump trucks, and many more! In the back of the book, there are even activities for the kiddos to do. (ages 4-8)

Tea For Ruby was written by The Duchess of York, Sarah Ferguson, and illustrated by Robin Preiss Glasser. Tea for Ruby is the perfect little book for little girls who love tea parties! Ruby gets invited to Tea with the queen, but Ruby tends to have problems with diasters happening all around here. So Ruby has to shape up her manners and quick. (ages 4-8)

Sleepyhead was written by Karma Wilson and illustrated by John Segal. This book is perfect bedtime story for little ones who like to put sleeping off anyway they can. In this book, Sleepyhead Teddy does just that. A cat is the parent and this is a very well illustrated book. (ages 3-7)

Ballyhoo Bay was written by Judy Sierra and illustrated by Derek Anderson. This book is about Mira Bella, the artist, who teaches classes at the beach everyday. Ballyhoo Bay is fun for all, until one gray day a billboard arrives, announcing an impending development that would take all the fun out of the place. Does Mira Bella and her friends save the day? Check it out and find out!

What's Under the Bed? was written and illustrated by Joe Fenton. This book is about Fred who is worried about what creature might be lurking under his bed. He eventually peeks to see what it is and it ends up only being his teddy bear Ted. This is a very cute book and is great for my 4 year old! (ages 3-7)

To help spread this promotion: Cheerios and MyBlogSpark sent me a great Spoonfuls of Stories gift pack. The gift pack included a set each of the five Spoonfuls of Stories books, a box of Cheerios, and a $25 gift card to Barnes & Noble. It is a very BIG box of Cheerios too!

What's even better is they also offered on of my readers the same gift pack that I received.

What necessary words... super, magnificent idea

A little about me:

I enjoy reading other people's blogs, and I love getting comments from my readers! I just got a job and I'll update as I get more into the job scene! I am working hard to improve my daily walk with Christ, and gets lots of guidance in doing so from my church family and friends. Please feel free to "follow" me on my blog, to check out the happenings of my day to day life as a mom to 4!
