Once upon a time, my husband worked in the classroom and he had a classroom library. His goal was 1000 books – and he surpassed this goal with donations from friends and finding great deals on books (think yard sales, thrift stores.) He left the classroom library behind when he transitioned out of the classroom, in hopes to inspire a love of reading in the next group of students to go through that room.
Books are big in our house.
My son’s personal library started long before he was born. We were gifted many books when I was pregnant, and I knew reading would be a big part of his life as my husband is not only a literacy coach, but also has a Masters in Reading.
Classroom libraries are very important, as are having books in the home. Kellogg’s is currently working to put more Scholastic books into libraries, whether it’s a classroom library or your personal library.
Through Kellogg’s Family Rewards program, you can get a free book just for purchasing a box of cereal or one of their specially marked products. I bought Rice Krispies® and Rice Krispies Treats® at Walmart last week. I enjoy the occasional bowl of Rice Krispies® as a post-dinner snack, and my family enjoys the Rice Krispies Treats®. My son is going to enjoy the books.
The site is simple to use. Create an account, enter the code from your Kellogg’s® packaging, select your book, wait a few weeks for your book(s) to arrive. I think the toughest part was picking out a book. There are 80 titles to choose from!
See how simple it is to redeem!
Once you’ve purchased your Kellogg’s product, you have 14 days to redeem your code for a free Scholastic book. 1 Kellogg’s product equals 1 free, full-length Scholastic book and each person can redeem up to 30 books. You can also purchase products directly from Walmart.com and receive a free book from purchases made between 7/21/15 and 9/11/15. Visit walmart.com to see a list of all eligible items. Ecommerce redemptions are made via receipt scanning. There are 3 ways you can upload your receipt, via text, via scanning into your computer or Kellogg’s Family Reward app – only when you purchase online between now and September 11, 2015.
We go through about one box of cereal every two weeks in our house. From cereal, we could earn two books each month. If your family or friends are buying similar Kellogg’s products, think of the books you could get for your own library. If your child doesn’t need them, you could donate them to a school or a classroom.
Right now, my plan is to keep one book for my son, and we’ll donate the rest to a classroom, which can be sent directly through the website. My son is very fortunate to have so many books, and this is a great way to spread the love.
Be sure to check out more books available via this Kellogg’s offer. I’d love to hear your favorite book offered!
