So, what's with the Susie Homemaker thing?!?!?
Dealing with mean girls (and boys) from a teenager's point of view.

How we can help Kellogg's & Scholastic give families free books!

1st day of school 2013
Disclosure: As a Champion of #GreatStarts blogger, I am honored to partner with Kellogg's in helping families (like mine) achieve great starts to their days. I am being compensated for my services for the length of the program.

It's the first day of school, here in Jersey (I know, it is kinda late, but the kids seemed okay wit-it!) which means my crew was up and ready to get out of the house by...wait...for...it...6:30, this morning.

Aaaaaand, I couldn't help but get all caught up in the tide of nervous energy flowing throughout the house.  

I was showered, dressed, baked a loaf of pumpkin bread, and then a batch of pumpkin cookies (for good measure), rounding out the morning with 3 loads of laundry washed and folded by...get...this...before lunchtime!!!

Okay, I lied:  the laundry isn't folded...YET!!!...which means I should be crashing anytime now and when the kids get home.

Before that happens, I want to tell you about how we've partnered with my friends at Kellogg's and the equally awesome folks at Scholastic to help give families free books!

On second thought, I'll let my celebrity dad-friend and children's book author Taye Diggs explain it (seriously, we spoke on the phone and everything!)  Why?!?  Well, I love his voice and he's way prettier to look at:

Here's the really great part:  U.S. families can help give kids great starts with great stories by placing 200,000 books into home libraries, schools and local communities.

That's awesome, but how can we help?!?  Participating in the Kellogg's free book program is pretty gosh-darned easy, there are two ways you and I can help share books with kids and families in need:  

  • Collect Kellogg’s Great Starts Great Stories codes from participating Kellogg’s products to receive a free book, or “gift” a book to a school in need, through nonprofit literacy organization Books for Kids. Go to KelloggsFreeBook.com to learn more. 
  • Visit www.Scholastic.com/MiniMissions to participate in Frosted Mini-Wheats “Mini” Missions and earn two free books monthly, as well as enter a sweepstakes for the chance to win Scholastic books and grants for local schools and communities.

Long story, short:  because every kid deserves to read!
