The Cheerios Spoonfuls of Stories program has distributed over 35 million children's books free inside cereal boxes since it began seven years ago. In that time, it has also raised nearly $3 million to benefit First Book, a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting literacy by providing much-needed books to children from low-income families.

Although the main mission of Cheerios Spoonfuls of Stories program is to nurture a love of reading, it also seeks to discover and actively encourage previously unpublished, up-and-coming children´s book authors. Entries for the Cheerios Spoonfuls of Stories New Author Contest 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. If you think you might have the next great kid's book floating around in your head, why not take a chance and enter?

Shellie Braeuner's The Great Dog Wash was the 2007 Grand Prize Winner. A nanny from Nashville, Braeuner won a $5,000 cash prize and the opportunity to have her book reviewed by Simon and Schuster Children's Publishing. They loved her story and will publish the book, illustrated by Robert Neubecker, in hardcover this summer. In addition, The Great Dog Wash will be available free inside 1.5 million boxes of Cheerios. The Cheerios Spoonfuls of Stories edition of The Great Dog Wash has been specially printed in paperback in both English and Spanish.

We received The Great Dog Wash along with three other special edition books from the Cheerios Spoonfuls of Stories series: Duck for President, Monkey and Me, and When Dinosaurs Came with Everything. The smaller paperback format (about the size of a TV Guide) is great for sticking in your purse for storytime on-the-go.



To enter and win your own Cheerios Spoonfuls of Stories book set (the same four titles pictured above), please comment on this post with the name of your favorite children's book.

Entries will be accepted through June 17th and I'll pick the winner using Random.org. US readers are eligible.

For an additional entry, post my button on your blog (see code on sidebar), follow my blog, follow me on Twitter, fave me on Technorati or subscribe via email or subscribe via reader. Leave an extra comment letting me know what you did for each additional entry.

  43. Okay, maybe it wasn't really a children's book, but I got "The Wizard of Oz" from the Bookmobile when I was young and read it until its spine was no longer. It's my favorite movie to this day.
