Cheerios Spoonfuls of Stories Review & Giveaway

http://www.myblogspark.com/images/brands/cheerios_spoonfuls_of_stories.pngReading books has become a part of our daily activities. I always encourage my son, Jai Hari to read more interesting books. I would love to spend more time with him to read books this summer. I feel proud when I see him reading loudly and asked me the meaning of any word that he wants to learn.

About Cheerios Spoonfuls of Stories program:
Over the past seven years, Cheerios Spoonfuls of Stories has given away more than 35 million children´s books by distributing them free inside cereal boxes and has donated nearly $3 million to First Book, their non-profit partner, which provides books to children from low-income families.

In addition to encouraging children to read, Cheerios is looking for anyone interested in writing children´s books. Now in its third year, the Cheerios Spoonfuls of Stories New Author Contest is a way to encourage previously unpublished, up-and-coming children´s book authors and to continue to nurture a love of reading. Entries are being accepted March 16 through July 15, 2009 and will be judged on appropriate story and content for children ages 3-8, emotional connection, writing quality, uniqueness, and read-aloud potential. More details on the contest can be found at www.spoonfulsofstoriescontest.com.

Shellie Braeuner, the first year´s winner, won for her book "The Great Dog Wash". This nanny from Nashville won a $5,000 cash prize and the opportunity to have her book reviewed by Simon and Schuster Children´s Publishing. Simon & Schuster offered Shellie a book deal - and will publish her book, illustrated by Robert Neubecker, in hardcover this summer. In addition, Cheerios will be featuring "The Great Dog Wash" free inside 1.5 million boxes of Cheerios. The book has been specially printed in paperback in both English and Spanish and will be available free inside boxes of Cheerios.

Cheerios is also announcing the winners of the second New Author Contest:

  • Lori Degman, of Vernon Hills, Ill., won the top prize for her story, "1 Zany Zoo." In addition to winning a $5,000 cash prize from Cheerios, Degman earned the opportunity to have her book reviewed by Simon & Schuster Children´s Publishing. Simon & Schuster has since offered Degman a book deal; her book is expected to be released in 2010, initially in paperback distributed inside Cheerios boxes, and later in hardcover sold in the market.

  • Cheerios also named two runners-up in the contest: Tameka Fryer Brown, of Charlotte, N.C., for her story "I´m Not Eating That!" and Joan Stradling, of Star Valley, Ariz., for her story, "Who Invites a Pig to Dinner?" Both Brown and Stradling will receive a cash prize of $1,000 from Cheerios.

Cheerios® is searching for the next great children’s book author. It could be you!

Just enter your original children’s book story by July 15, 2009.

Meet Lori Degman. Her story, 1 Zany Zoo, won the Grand Prize in the 2008 Cheerios® Spoonfuls of Stories New Author Contest. She won $5,000 from Cheerios®, and will have her book published by Simon and Schuster Children’s Publishing.

My daughter loves books! I read to her every day at nap time and bed time and she "reads" to herself throughout the day, too. I don't know if I could choose just one favorite, but definitely one of her top picks is Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?

Thanks!
