Happy Meals just got more exciting!

Do you get kids squealing each time you walk past the fast food restaurant with the big yellow letter, 'M?' Yes, McDonald's! Keep those squeals down as I tell you they are now serving up something more purposeful with those Happy meals. From 03 September to 30 September (4 weeks), each purchase of happy meal comes with a book! I am undoubtedly one excited parent who always prefer books over toys. 

Just hot and fresh from the mail man, we received a total of 8 English titles specially selected from publisher Dorling Kindersley ("DK"). These 8 books of 2 series are "Watch Me Grow" (Targeted at 3 to 5 years old) and "WOW" (Targeted at 7 to 9 years old). The 6 year olds will love them all! 

"Watch Me Grow" series explore an animal's eye view of life through a collection of popular animal titles. The titles in this series include Panda, Butterfly, Elephant and Penguin. Children may read interestingly about these growing animals from babyhood to adulthood. I love that these books come with fold ins and outs on certain pages, which makes it fun to read like 'Peekaboo' books.

"WOW" series is a spectacular show and tell experience exploring each subject in a unique way through stunning photographic images. Titles in this series include Human Body, Art and Culture, Ancient History and Space. Each book not only come with fantastic facts, it comes with fun quizzes and stickers too. Be sure that your child will be totally engaged.

It's an applauding move for McDonald's to help inspire more family reading time, beyond burgers and nuggets. There seriously isn't a better bundle than these very educational books. Like their usual toys, they are light and easy to carry about too. Good for keep. These book choices did make life a little easier for parents. Enriching in both food and knowledge.

And so, I asked Js about these books, here's what I've got:
Jazz: "They are good and exciting. I learn new things."
Jare: "They make me clever!"

Guess they have enjoyed their adventure with these books. Defnitely more pleasing to sight kids handling books than toys over their Happy Meal time. Set a date with your kids at McDonald's soon!
