McDonald’s Happy Meals Encourage Reading with Fun New Books-Giveaway

Almost every child gets excited about a McDonald’s Canada Happy Meal, and between now and November 14, 2013, you can get excited about Happy Meals too, because each one now comes with one of four charming children’s books! As a huge literacy advocate, I was so excited about this new program and my boys, both of whom love reading, were just as delighted.

I received all four of the books to review along with a few McDonald’s goodies. I liked the fact that the books had positive messages about eating healthy or exploring the world, while still being lots of fun. Doddi the Dodo Goes to Orlando was my personal favourite. The story of a Dodo that gets lost on the yearly migration to Orlando and ends up touring the world was fun, fresh and had a clever ending. Plus it helped get my boys asking questions about other countries!

And while the books are only available in Happy Meals until November 14, McDonald’s is keeping the learning going after that too! Every month, a new digital book will be available through the McPlay app or by visiting What a fun way to encourage kids to read more!

To celebrate this exciting new program, McDonald’s Canada has a very special giveaway just for you. One lucky Mommy Kat and Kids reader will win a prize pack containing all four of the McDonald’s Happy Meal books, a cute McDonald’s lunch bag, an iPhone stand and McDonald’s free product coupons, a $50 value! To enter to win, just check out the downloadable ebooks on the site and leave a blog comment about which one would be your child’s favourite.
