What better way to show your kid some love, than by presenting them with the gift of literature? Now through Feb. 15, McDonalds will be giving books instead of toys in their Happy Meals.
The LA Times reports the fast food company will include four different books in their campaign, “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 Paddington by Michael Bond and illustrated by R. W. Alley.”
This is not the first time McDonalds switches out toys for books and according to Fortune, by the end of this campaign, McDonald’s will have distributed 50 million children’s books.
Hopefully kids will be ok with the switch and not throw a fit as a result. Maybe you could just keep their books. Kids books are fun anyway.
