**This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to the lucky winner - shirley #15!**

*Reading is a key building block for learning and life. That’s why we created the Cheerios® Spoonfuls of Stories® program to help get books into kids hands' and encourage parents and kids to read together. Since 2001, Cheerios has given away over 50 million books on package, and donated more than $3.5 million to First Book, an award winning children’s literacy non-profit that provides children from low-income families the opportunity to own their first new books.*

And this Fall, Cheerios, through its Spoonfuls of Stories program, is once again inviting families to start their day with a nutritious breakfast and a brand new book. As part of its ongoing commitment to nurturing the whole child and connecting families by fostering a shared love of reading, Cheerios will once again provide more than six million children’s books, written in both English and Spanish, free inside Cheerios boxes.

And this Fall, Cheerios, through its Spoonfuls of Stories program, is once again inviting families to start their day with a nutritious breakfast and a brand new book.

Reading to your children at a young age is so important. I cannot stress that enough! We read to my children when they were babies and it has really paid off. My kids love to read books. We are very fortunate to have had books available to us, but some families do not.

*As studies have consistently shown, children with greater access to books and other print materials are more successful in school and in life. However, one recent study revealed that in low-income neighborhoods, there is only about one age-appropriate book for every 300 children,* a statistic that exposes one of the biggest barriers affecting literacy today - lack of access to books. In an effort to help combat this issue, Cheerios, as part of its Spoonfuls of Stories initiative, will also 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. Cheerios has donated more than $3.5 million to First Book over the past nine years.*

I received a prize pack that included a $25 gift card to Barnes & Noble, all five of the new in-pack titles and a box of Cheerios. What a delicious and healthy way to start off the day! My kids really love this nutritious cereal.

One lucky reader will win a Cheerios Prize Pack of their own!
