Cheerios 100,000 Book Giveaway

We have SO many books in our house. We are constantly reading and reading to Elijah. Books are something simple we take for granted.

A recent study shows that the ratio of books per child in middle income neighborhoods is 13 to 1. That is horribly sad! Even worse is that in low-income neighborhoods, the ratio is only 1 age appropriate book for every 300 children. Over 80 percent of childcare centers serving low-income children don't have age appropriate books at all!

Wow. That really puts it into perspective. Elijah himself has received over 50 books as gifts from us and other family in his short 15 months of life. That really inspires us to want to help other children be as blessed as ours is.

The Cheerios family of cereals, First Book and Jon Scieszka, author of the popular “Trucktown” series and other children’s books, have joined together to deliver 100,000 books to community-based programs serving children in need – and we’d love your help! All you have to do is go online with your child and test your combined knowledge of children’s books. The trivia questions are related to “Trucktown” and other great children’s books and won't take much of your time for such a great cause.

For every trivia question answered correctly, you can cast one vote for the state you would like to receive books. The five states receiving the most votes will get 20,000 books each, for a total of 100,000 books. Visit www.FirstBook.org/Scieszka to test your knowledge and start voting.

Would you like to win a special Cheerios prize pack for your children or to give away?
Winner will get:
An assortment of books from Cheerios
A box of one of the many varieties of Cheerios cereals
and a $25 gift card to Barns and Noble!!!

To Enter: Visit www.FirstBook.org/Scieszka and answer the question on the right side of the page. If you get it right tell me the name of the book the question was from and the state you voted for. If you get it wrong, hit next question until you get a right answer then tell me the name of the book your correct answered question was from and the state you voted for. (Hint: Most questions can be easily guessed!)
