This is a sponsored post but all thoughts are my own.
One of the coolest things about books is that they do SO MUCH. They transport you to a different time and place. They help you forget your troubles. They teach. They calm. And they don’t require batteries.
It doesn’t matter if you’re 5 or 95 (or somewhere smack dab in the middle like me) – books are incredible. Part entertainment, part teacher, part doctor (a good book is great mental health therapy, wouldn’t you agree?).
This week, the Scholastic Book Fair is making a stop at our elementary school. I am amazed that EACH of us, from my youngest son in 3rd grade all the way up the ladder to me, can get lost in the book fair, dreaming and and reading book covers and making mental wish-lists. There’s something about holding a brand new book in your hands. It’s magical.
You want to know what else is magical? FREE BOOKS. Keep reading and I’ll tell you how you can get some free books from Scholastic!
From now through the August 31, 2014, when you purchase 2 specially-marked packages of EVEREADY® Gold® batteries, you can redeem the codes on the packages for a free Scholastic book at Eveready.com/Reader. 10-digit codes can be found on specially marked EVEREADY® packages. 2 codes = 1 book (maximum of 2 books per household). There are 3 titles available (Fly Guy vs. The Fly Swatter, Clifford Sees America & The Magic School Bus Takes a Moonwalk)…Which of these 3 books would your kids love the most? (We’re fans of Magic School Bus here!)
Remember at the beginning of this post when I said I loved that books didn’t need batteries? I was mostly right, but there’s one situation where books need batteries….and that’s during a power outage. Have you ever tried to read a book in the dark? It’s not so easy!
I love that Scholastic and EVEREADY® have teamed up for a great cause. They have created these handy resources to help get families prepared for emergency situations – everything from a power outage to an evacuation. Check out these helpful articles to get started:
- How to Create a Safety and Evacuation Plan for Your Family
- 5 Ways to Keep Kids Entertained During a Power Outage
- How to Make a Kids’ Safety Cuff
And then visit Eveready.com/Reader to download these free PDFs to get your family ready for the next emergency situation (we’ll just hope that we never have to use them, right?).
Now, head out to your nearest store (the special packages of EVEREADY® Gold® batteries are available at a variety of retailers, but Dollar General is the largest retailer carrying the program), stock up on batteries, and redeem your FREE BOOKS!
