When I was chosen for this opportunity, I was pretty excited. I love children’s books and when I heard that McDonald’s will be offering books in the happy meals, I was pretty happy, especially now that my son is reading. These are cute little books that all focus on eating right.


McDonald’s has partnered with Reading Is Fundamental (RIF) to help share stories with families. In addition to the 20 million books that will be distributed in the Happy Meals, they have partnered with RIF to give an additional 100,000 copies to families with little access to books.

But the reading fun doesn’t stop there. Every month, McDonald’s be posting a new e-book available for download on theMcDonald’s McPlay App (for iPhone or Android, both free). You can also download the books on McDonald’s Website.

The book “The Goat Who Ate Everything” also has the interactive digital version on the McPlay app where you can access and interact with the digital version.

McDonald's Happy Meal Books


The four books include:

“Doddi the Dodo Goes to Orlando”  –  Follows happy-go-­lucky bird Doddi who travels the world. She eats right because this dodo is always on the go-­go.

“Ant, Can’t”  –  Features Ant, a bite-­sized bodybuilder who’s big on encouraging physical fitness through exercise and eating right.

“Deana’s Big Dreams”  –  Shares how Deana, the world’s smallest dinosaur, grew tall by eating right.

RELATED:  Mrs. Tuesday's Departure Book Blast

“The Goat Who Ate Everything”  –  Tells a story of a goat who has a big appetite and struggles to eat right. But when he does, he feels great and becomes the playful ‘kid’ everyone loves.
