MyBlogSpark- Cheerios create-your-own book Giveaway *Closed*



Over the past 9 years Cheerios has given away more than 50 million children's books inside boxes of Cheerios cereal. The newest specially marked boxes of Cheerios contains the book "How Do You Hug a Porcupine?" by Laurie Isop. Laurie was the grand prize winner of the Cheerios New Author Contest in 2009.
How would you like to win $5,000 and have your book featured in Cheerios cereal boxes? Do you think you have what it takes to be the next grand prize winner of the annual Cheerios New Author Contest? If so, go to http://www.spoonfulsofstoriescontest.com/ by July 15, 2011 to enter.
Cheerios and MyBlogSpark provided me with a prize pack including a specially marked box of Cheerios containing "How Do You Hug a Porcupine?" by Laurie Isop and a create-your-own book kit that contains two hard cover books and everything you need to create a story. My boys and I sat down this afternoon and created our own picture book. They had such a blast and now we have a great keepsake book to look back at as they get older.
Here are a few of the pages we created:
Thanks to MyBlogSpark and Cheerios, one of my readers will win the very same prize pack I received for this review.

If I wrote a children's novel, I'd like to focus on homeschooling or adoption. I haven't personally been involved in either but family and friends have and I think they are important topics that would be great for younger kids to learn about

I would write something about the value of learning - a story that would appeal to kids and impress that at the same time.

We're always snacking on Cheerios in the car so our book would probably by about an adventure we go on.

I wish they had something like this for mystery novels. Lets suggest that Dorritos does this and puts my novel, "Splattered Blood" in the packages.
Wow would that be great.
