First Book-Oahu posted an announcement on their blog about the new Cheerios and FirstBook Trivia Challenge. Cheerios will give away 100,000 new books to children in low income communities across the country. Each of the top 5 states will receive 20,000 books to distribute. Every little bit helps battle illiteracy. Check out their blog entry for more info.

For every answer you get right you get to vote for your state and the great part is, you can answer as many questions as you choose! Each correct answer will lead you to a screen that looks like this:

Share the link with your friends and coworkers too! It’s also a great way to learn about new children’s books! Alex and I were having our own little competition and you can see our results below. Just so you know—he’s a much better test-taker than I am, plus I was small kine rushing 😛
