McDonald’s Canada Launches Happy Meal Books #Giveaway

McDonald’s Happy Meals sure have come a long way since I was a kid with offerings like Danino® Strawberry Yogurt, the choice of apple slices instead of french fries, and the choice of a low-fat dairy option like 1 per cent white or chocolate milk.  As part of McDonald’s commitment to evolving the Happy Meal to meet the expectation of parents McDonald’s Canada is offering books in Happy Meals at participating restaurants until November 14th. 

The promotion includes four limited edition books which feature a focus on nutrition and imagination with fun and playful themes to get your child excited about reading.  McDonald’s will be introducing new e-books monthly and made available on McPlay™, McDonald’s Happy Meal app and on

  1. I can’t wait to read the DoDo bird one to my son! e loves McDonalds and their happy meal toys! These books are a great idea and thousands of times better than toys in so many ways. Good job McDonalds!

  2. I would love to read “Diddi the dodo goes to Orlando” first with my daughter, as we visited Orlando recently and she would love this one!
