Access to books is essential to reading development. However, did you know that over 80 percent of childcare centers serving low-income children lack age-appropriate books? And a recent study shows that the ratio of books per child in middle income neighborhoods is 13 to 1, while in low-income neighborhoods, the ratio is 1 age-appropriate book for every 300 children.
Now, all you have to do is visit www.FirstBook.org/Scieszka with your child and test your combined knowledge of children´s books by answering trivia questions related to "Trucktown" and other great children´s books.
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.
For this review, I received a Cheerios Gift pack which contained of a box of Frosted Cheerios, 5 children's books and a $25 Barnes and Noble Gift Card.
We love reading the books that were sent to us. They each have wonderful illustrations and all of the stories are told in Spanish and English. My kid's really enjoy the book "What's Under the Bed". The Cheerios were a hit too. The box has since been emptied, but it sure was delicious and I would definitely buy it in the future. It's not too sweet and it is also good for you.ided yo
