McDonald’s Will Serve Happy Meals With Books Instead of Toys
Trying to get your kids to read more? You might want to take them to McDonald’s MCD -2.00% , where they’ll get a book instead of a toy in their Happy Meals, now through Feb. 15. Fair warning: You might want to tell them in advance, because they just might throw a fit when they find a paperback instead of a shiny plastic toy.
According to the Los Angeles Times, McDonald’s is including four different books in this experiment. Three of them are Valentine’s Day themed: Clark the Shark Takes Heart by Bruce Hale and illustrated by Guy Francis, Happy Valentine’s Day, Mouse! by Laura Numeroff and Felicia Bond, and Pete the Cat: Valentine’s Day Is Cool by Kimberly and James Dean. The fourth book is the classic Paddingtonby Michael Bond and illustrated by R. W. Alley.
