Look for specially-marked packages of original Cheerios, Multi Grain Cheerios Peanut Butter, Chocolate Cheerios, and Apple Cinnamon Cheerios for in-pack storybooks for children ages 2 to 8 years-old, specially printed in both English and Spanish. This year’s book offerings from Cheerios – all by Simon & Schuster Children’s Publishing – are:
- “That’s What I’d Do” by Jewel
- “Bear Says Thanks” by Karma Wilson
- “1-2-3 Peas” by Keith Baker
- “Chicks Run Wild” by Sudipta Bardhan-Quallen
- “Please, Baby Please” by Spike Lee & Tonya Lewis Lee
- & “Jump!” by Scott M. Fischer
And for the second year in a row, Cheerios will also feature a chapter book for older readers inside specially-marked boxes of Honey Nut Cheerios. This year’s book, “Phineas L. MacGuire...Gets Cooking,” was written for exclusive release in Cheerios boxes by Frances O'Roark Dowell, author of the “Phineas” series. The book is written in three parts so there are three to collect.
What's even more fun about these books is that you can visit www.cheerios.com/cheer-on-reading to find an activity, which corresponds with one of the books in the boxes of Cheerios cereal that you buy. We received “That’s What I’d Do” by Jewel and “Chicks Run Wild” by Sudipta Bardhan-Quallen. As soon as Sweet Pea saw the books in the box she insisted I open them. My daughter was so excited to see books IN her Cheerios! She loves books and loves to read. And of COURSE she loves to eat Cheerios! The books we received were right up her alley.
