This giveaway is very near and dear to my heart! Years ago, I got the book, “Olivia and the Missing Toy” in a box of Cheerios. I threw it in a drawer somewhere and didn’t think much of it. Then…our Olivia Grace was born! I dug out the book and it has been our daughter’s absolutely FAVORITE story to read for months now. She and my husband can recite it word for word together. Last Wednesday, Olivia fell and had to get six stitches in her forehead. (Boo!) The doctor needed to keep her perfectly still, so my husband recited the story to her and she laid on that table and never moved, not one bit! The doctor and nurse were so impressed and now they know the story of “Olivia and the Missing Toy” also. LOL! So, that one little book in a box of Cheerios years ago is well loved and has made a very big impact on our family. Thank you for the book giveaway and thanks to Cheerios!!
