WINNER:  djackson1958@xxxxxx

My kids and I love books.  It is part of our routine to read to them every single day.  If we have something come up and it throws off the schedule, they still want us to find a way to fit in reading time.  As my kids have gotten older and into school, we’ve started to purchase Scholastic books from the numerous book fairs througout the school year.  It is such an easy way for us to feed their love of books (and help out our local schools).

Kellogg’s understands the positive impact reading at home can have on students’ success in the classroom. That’s why they’ve partnered with Walmart and Scholasticthis fall. With the purchase of specially marked Kellogg’s products at Walmart stores, parents can redeem a coupon for a free Scholastic book of their child’s choice.  You simply purchase 2 specially marked Kellogg’s products or one Kellog’s Tri-Pack at walmart and you will get a coupon worth up to $5 to use towards a book of your choice from Scholastic.   You can get more details (and enter your codes) by heading here.
