As part of the launch of Happy Meal Books, McDonald’s is collaborating with Reading is Fundamental (RIF), the largest children’s literacy non-profit in the U.S., to help more children and their families discover the joy of reading. RIF will distribute 100,000 Happy Meal Books to children who do not have easy access to books.
There would be 4 books to collect and the titles are:
The Goat Who Ate Everything
Deana’s Big Dreams
Doddi the Dodo Goes to Orlando
And the "Ant Can't" video read by celebrity friends Colin Kaepernick, Alex Morgan, Mark Consuelos, Trevor Jackson, DJ Irie, and Daym Drops.
It doesn't stop here because starting November 1, there will be an e-book available on the McPlay App each month. The first e-book would be The World’s Greatest Cities from the DK’s Amazing World Series.
Kids would be able to read and interact with the story in the McPlay App.
The book "The Goat Who Ate Everything" also has the interactive digital version on the McPlay app and they will be able to access and interact with the digital version there.
The fun doesn't stop because you can also download the Happy meal Books as well as the DK Publishing e-books at the McDonald's website. There would also be Spanish versions of the McDonald's Happy Meal books on McDonalds.com and MeEncanta.com
You can read more information about the McDonald's book here. :)
I am very excited about these books because my daughters love it when I read books to them (they are 2 and 5 years old). My daughters have A LOT of happy meal toys collected throughout the years and in my experience, they would only play with the happy meal toys for a few days and then they'd put them in their toy box (of course I still buy them the happy meal because they love the food and nothing can compare to their happy faces when they get the toy. :)) and then completely forget about it. Now with these limited time books, we can read them over and over again and add it to our small library of reading books.
Now for the fun part, my VERY FIRST giveaway!! (YAY!! :))
