Kohl's Takes $5 to the Max

Looking for a great deal on some fantastic books for your child? How 'bout a soft plush toy to go with it?

With Kohl's Cares for Kids program, you can have both without breaking your budget. From now until the end of June, Kohl's is offering another unbelievable deal. You can buy Duck at the Door and Duck Soup, both written by the New York Times bestselling author and illustrator Jackie Urbanovic, for only five dollars each. No, that's not a typo. Each of these delightful and beautifully illustrated hardcover books is now available through Kohl's. And that's not all—you can also purchase Max the Duck and Brody the Dog plush toys for just five dollars each.

And you're not the only getting a great deal, one hundred percent of the net profits from these sales goes to benefit children's health and education initiatives nationwide. Since the beginning of Kohl's Cares for Kids in 2000, Kohl's has turned these five-dollar deals into over 126 million dollars for kid-related causes. So you can feel good knowing you're supporting educational programs for diabetes, asthma, and childhood obesity, as well as injury prevention and immunizations.

But the best part is that the fun adventures of Max the Duck and his pal Brody are sure to get a giggle from both children and adults. And at five dollars each, you can afford to stock up for upcoming birthday parties or stash them away until Christmas. This is one deal that's too good to pass up!

Once you get a hold of Duck at the Door and Duck Soup, why not create some unique fun for your little readers? Here are a few suggestions to get you started:

Rainy Day Fun: Kohl’s Cares for Kids books and plush toys can spark a child’s imagination on a rainy day. Read Duck Soup and then encourage a child to create his or her own recipe and even test it out in the kitchen (with supervision, of course). Children can also imagine and act out new adventures for Max the Duck and Brody the Dog after reading the books.

Kids Book Club: Develop an early love of reading by starting a book club for kids. Invite a group of parents and children to read Duck at the Door or Duck Soup. Determine a meeting date and encourage everyone to come with a discussion question. Plan an activity to compliment the book, such as making soup.

Plan a Charity-Focused Birthday Party: Encourage guests to bring Kohl’s Cares for Kids books and plush toys as gifts instead of other presents, then donate the books to a local school, library, or hospital. Invite the children to join you when you deliver the books so they can feel the joy of serving others, perhaps reading their favorite stories to children in a local hospital.

Share the Love of Reading: Volunteer to read at a daycare, then leave Kohl’s Cares for Kids books as a gift to the center. Take children to a nursing home to read with residents and teach them about volunteering their time while practicing their reading skills.

Now that you're getting the idea, run—don't walk—to your closest Kohl's and grab onto this fantastic deal. Remember, you only have until the end of June before these five dollar bargains are over. And if you don't know if there's a Kohl's located near you, check out their website at for store locations and much more.
