I love to read, I have hundreds of books stashed away in my closet, and even more on my kindle! I enjoy reading at night before bed in order to help me relax. One of my favorite memories as a child is of my mom reading me stories. It could be any story, but having time with my mom meant the world to me. Recently, I was sent a box containing two Cheerios cereals that included the book inside!
This year, Cheerios™ is celebrating the 12th Anniversary of their commitment to literacy through such programs as Cheerios Cheer On Reading and Spoonfuls of Stories™. Cheerios created the program in 2003 to help get books into kids’ hands and encourage parents and kids to read together.
