Share the Power of Reading with a Community Library and Kellogg

Now is the perfect time of year, right before your kids go back to school, to share the power of reading with books! There is an amazing offer of Scholastic books happening right now with Kellogg’s products. While I was at Walmart the other day I grabbed some of the specially marked Kellogg’s products so I can redeem the codes for free Scholastic books. It is a great way I can fill our new free library with books for our community.kelloggs free books

Building a free library for your community is an amazing way to get children excited about books. It’s really based on an honest system. The children in your community can take one book. Once they return it they can take another book. Fill your community library with a variety of books for every age range. Free Community LibraryI can’t wait to fill ours with the free Scholastic books I will receive from purchasing specially marked Kellogg’s products at Walmart.

You can redeem codes for hard copy or E-books. I know E-books are very popular for my son but I still like him to read physical books throughout the school year.

Your children can enjoy their Kellogg’s products while enjoying a book in the afternoon. When selecting your books be sure your kids choose books that inspire them! Reading has become a happy habit in my home thanks to Kellogg’s! It’s always a good idea to read aloud together with your children no matter how old. My son is ten years old and he loves for me to read a book to him before bed. Now is the time to fill your home library with books of different lengths, genres and reading levels. By doing this your children can discover the right book, at the right time.

Be sure to check out more books available via this Kellogg’s offer at I’d love to hear your favorite book offered! How do you give back to your community? #Back2SchoolReady
