Winner Announced - $25 Barnes & Noble/Cheerio Gift Pack Giveaway

Congratulations to Lori S, surveys4lori@
for subscribing to my blog! It was her winning entry!

Please email me your address, so I can have your gift mailed out to you. My email is moneysavingmethods at yahoo dot com.

You must respond within 48 hours, or a new name will be pulled.

Thanks to every one for participating and My Blog Spark and Cheerios for sharing this gift!


I love to read! Seriously, I love it! I think every one who reads my blog knows that. I can't get enough of books.

And, you know who else knows this passion of mine? My children do.

From the time they were born, I have been reading to them and they have been watching me read. They know how much enjoyment I get from it, and they also know how important reading is for their learning and education.

Through the years, their interests have changed. My 7 year old now likes to read chapter books himself at night ( although he does still crawl into bed while I read to the younger kids and listens ). My 2 year old loves the classic, Goodnight Moon and Guess How Much I Love You! In fact, I love those book, too. Sometimes, oldies are just goodies.

What do I like to read to them? Dr. Seuss, of course. I love the tongue twisters and making the books silly and fun!

So, I was very pleased that Cheerios and My Blog Spark sent me a gift pack which included 5 children's books, a $25 Barnes & Noble gift card and a box of Cheerios ( yum! ). In fact, did you know that Cheerios given away more than 40 million children's books free in their cereal boxes? And, they have also donated $3.2 million to First Book, which provides books to low-income families for their kids.

The stories included in the gift pack are an example of the books they are including in their cereal boxes.

The books included were:
  • Junkyard Fort, written by Jon Scieszka
  • Tea for Ruby, written by The Duchess of York, Sarah Ferguson
  • Sleepyhead, written by Karma Wilson
  • Ballyhoo Bay, written by Judy Sierra
  • What’s Under the Bed?, written and illustrated by Joe Fenton
I have happy to report they have also agreed to give the gift pack away to one lucky winner via my blog! Will it be you?

Here is how you can enter:
