For The Love Of Reading

As a mom of two boys, I do my best every day to make sure my children are eating well and staying active. Their health and well-being is my number one priority.

On occasion, I take my boys to McDonald's for a treat, because every once in a while, a Happy Meal is totally okay with me. (Especially since there are healthier options like apple slices and yogurt.)

Here is some good news I'm happy to share with you about McDonald's: right now, Happy Meals will be coming with a new softcover book, until November 14th. After this, a new digital book will be released every month, available using the McPlay App. The books can also be found on

I love seeing my boys read, and love stocking up on new books for them and filling their home library.

The four books that can be found in Happy Meals right now are:

The Goat Who Ate Everything: This softcover book is about a goat who has a big appetite and struggles to eat smart. But when he does, he feels great and becomes the playful kid everyone loves.

Deana's Big Dreams: This 28 page book includes a special fold-out page. This was my five year old's favourite book and it's all about Deana, the world's smallest dinosaur with big dreams.

Ant Can't: This book is about Ant, a bite-sized bodybuilder who's big on encouraging physical fitness through exercise and eating right. The illustrations are great, too.

Doddi the Dodo Goes to Orlando: This 28 page book is about Doddi the Dodo, a happy-go-lucky bird who travels the world.

All these books are great for children, especially for kids just learning to read.

If you'd like to receive these four books and some Happy Meal vouchers, just let me know in the comments below and I'll pick a winner on Monday, November 12th.

Good Luck!

My little guy loves reading and McDonalds is his favourite treat. It's actually how I got him to eat yogurt and now he loves it.

Seriously, books! great idea! My kids love books, and McDonalds! I used to love trying to collect them all when Irving would give books for a gas fill up, fun!

I would love the vouchers and the books that come with the Happy Meals.

I like that they're giving away books with a happy meal! Very cute, and way better than a cheap plastic toy that breaks on the way home! Would love to win :)

I would love to have some Happy Meal vouchers on hand, for every time we drive by the Golden Arches! ;) And I keep the toys (and now books - awesome!) in the car to keep the kids occupied - having new books to read will be great! Thanks for the contest Loukia :)

I'd like to win because we don't go out to McDonalds very often so it would be a treat for my kids. The books look great too:)
