General Mills 100,000 Book Giveaway!

Here’s a great opportunity for libraries to get free books.
According to General Mills:
“As part of a commitment to children’s literacy, Cheerios cereal along with Jon Scieszka, will donate 100,000 books to First Book. First Book’s mission is to give new books to kids in need to help them develop skills to succeed in life.
Cheerios is asking the public to tell them which states should receive the books. To vote for the state you think is most in need of new books go to and answer questions about classic children’s storybooks. Every correct answer counts as one vote: so the more questions you answer correctly, the more votes you cast. The five states with the most votes will each receive 20,000 books, provided by Cheerios. Hurry the contest ends 8/31/2010.
Jon Scieszka’s books have won a whole mess of awards, and sold over 11 million copies. His latest series of books are all set in Trucktown, a world where all of the characters are trucks and all of the trucks act like real preschoolers.”
