WFMW: Checkout Line Pastime

I love those miniature books that come on the front of the large Cheerios boxes. They are the perfect size to tuck in a purse or diaper bag. Even for their tiny size, though, the books are complete; they're not abridged or watered down. Whenever we are stuck in a long checkout line, I get them out to pass the time. (Bonus: Distraction from all those indecent magazine covers!) Reading aloud to children is SO important and this is a wonderful way to read to your children even more!

The books are only available for a limited time and are on the Cheerios boxes now. If your kids don't eat Cheerios you can always donate the cereal to a food pantry, church nursery or preschool (you can easily get the book out without opening the cereal).

P.S. Look at what Screech has been up to. This one's a lulu!
