On Saturday morning I took the boys to a very special storytime. Cheerios®, alongside local children’s book author Liz Garton Scanlon, hosted a “Breakfast & A Book” reading event to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of its Spoonfuls of Stories® program. Spoonfuls of Stories will provide more than six million bilingual children’s books free inside specially-marked cereal boxes while supplies last. I also had the great opportunity to meet one of my fellow San Antonio bloggers, Michelle Hernandez, blogger at Family Love in My City, who read alongside Liz in Spanish.
The boys had a wonderful time!
Over the past 10 years, Cheerios has distributed more than 60 million children’s books inside boxes and donated $3.8 million to First Book.
Thanks so much to Cheerios and H.E.B for all they are doing to promote literacy in our communities!
