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.
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:
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!
