Cheerios Spoonfuls of Stories Gift Set Giveaway!!


35 Million children's books, did you know that is the number of books that Cheerios has given out over the past seven years? They have also donated almost $3 Million to First Book, a program that gives books to low income families. What a wonderful thing to do. This company truly cares about children, and wants to make sure that all children learn to read and love to do it.

Not only do they love providing children with books, they love to give aspiring authors a chance to write children's books. This will be the third year that Cheerios has held the Spoonfuls of Stories New Author Contest. This contest gives unpublished authors a chance to have their children's book published. Entries are being accepted until July 15, 2009, and will be judged on the following criteria:
  • appropriate story and content for children ages 3-8
  • emotional connection
  • writing quality
  • uniqueness
  • read-aloud potential
The grand prize is $5000 and a chance to have your book published. There will be two first prizes of $1000 each. The stories of all the contest winners will appear on www.SpoonfulsofStories.com.

If you would like to enter, or find out more information on the contest, please visit spoonfulsofstoriescontest.com.

Well, I always thought it was really cool that there was a character in the Babar books named Celeste (like me!) - because I really have never known anyone else named Celeste, so - I'd be Queen Celeste from the Babar books!
