Laura Numeroff Of ‘If You Give A Mouse A Cookie’ Providing Free Books With New Program

Have you heard about the NYC children’s reading program with New York Times best-selling author, Laura Numeroff of If You Give a Mouse a Cookie?

Laura has partnered with Sleepy’s and First Book, a non-profit organization working to provide new books to children in need, to promote family bedtime reading. Research shows that reading at least 20 minutes per night with your child can improve child literacy by 10 whole school days per year.

Laura is reading and signing complimentary copies of her latest book, The Jellybeans and the Big Book Bonanza on Tuesday March 30th from 1-2pm.

Laura would also like to encourage parents to make a pledge to read to their children at least 20 minutes per night. Each pledge will support Sleepy’s corporate contribution to First Book to provide new books to families in need so more children have access to read. Parents can take the pledge at http://www.sleepysbedtimestories.com and enter for a chance to win lunch with Laura Numeroff in New York City.

I have a copy of ‘The Jellybeans and the Big Book Bonanza’ to giveaway to a Facebook Fan! In honor of the title, answer this question: “What is your favorite jellybean flavor?”

Good luck!!! Be sure to put your answers on THIS PAGE. Those will be the only ones counted. 😉
