Happy Meal Readers Program – We All McLove it!

There’s no denying the success of the McDonald’s reading program, Tim Kenward, McDonald’s Marketing Manager says:

We’re excited to be partnering with Cressida Cowell for a second year to release a new and exclusive series of Happy Meal books, following the program’s great success in 2020.

“We are proud to have distributed 28 million children’s books since we launched Happy Meal books in 2009, helping to instil a passion and excitement for reading among Australian children.

 “At McDonald’s, we are committed to feeding and fostering communities, and that includes using our scale through programs like Happy Meal Readers to help spark curiosity and imagination among children, while also providing a moment of closeness for families with our books.”

The new book series is part of the super-popular McDonald’s Happy Meal Readers program, which gives customers the option to choose between a book and a toy with their Happy Meal all year round. We’re McLovin’ this idea!

So what will it be, nuggets, hamburger or a cheeseburger to munch on while you read?
