I’m super happy to announce that I’ve signed on as a steward of a wonderful reading and literacy partnership project sponsored by Alpha-Bits Cereal and Little Free Library. Very soon, there will be a Little Free Library in my front yard for all my neighbors to enjoy!
Little Free Library is a nationwide network of small, handcrafted, free-standing structures that look kind of like birdhouses. Members of the community can borrow, take or leave books for others. It’s a great way to facilitate fellowship among neighbors, promote literacy and love for reading. Currently, there are between 10,000 and 12,000 Little Free Libraries across the United States.
Check out all these cute Little Free Libraries on Pinterest.
Alpha-Bits, which has been a favorite cereal for generations, is a natural partner for Little Free Library. The Post cereal bran is dedicated to making letter recognition F-U-N.
Speaking of fun, Bridgette and I made some Alpha-Bits bars today with the complimentary cereal they sent us. Click here for the recipe. We are really looking forward to getting our library kit in the mail and doing a big roll out of our Little Free Library.

P.S. Did you know the PBS Kids’ Super WHY! characters are Alpha-Bits stars?
