In a perfect world where I didn’t have to work and food didn’t make me gain weight, I’d spend my days sitting in bed reading books and eating McDonald’s French fries. Throw in a Diet Coke (large in a foam cup, please and thank you) and I would never leave.
I’m still working out the kinks on that dream, but until then I’ll just have to survive on McDonald’s Happy Meals and the super-cute books they’re putting in there for the next few weeks. McDonald’s is all about celebrating family and reading so between now and November 14th, children (or adults, ahem) who order Happy Meals will be able to enjoy one of four brand-new books that focus on eating right and healthy choices. We were there this weekend and got two copies of Ant, Can’t. It’s a big hit with my girls.
To go along with the Happy Meal Books, McDonald’s of Central Indiana is leading the “Give a Book, Get a Book” campaign. Drop off a new or gently used children’s book at one of the locations listed below and in exchange you’ll receive a Be Our Guest card good for one free Happy Meal.
Book Donation Sites: Hussey-Mayfield Public Library (Zionsville), Attica Public Library, Elwood Public Library, Barton Rees Pogue Memorial Library (Upland), Brownstown Public Library, Indy Reads (downtown Indy), and the Ronald McDonald House (435 Limestone St.). Additional sites are being added daily so be sure to check out the updated list here.
Happy Meals and books. Throw in a Diet Coke and perhaps an Oreo McFlurry and my week would be made. In celebration of Happy Meal Books and all the “Give a Book, Get a Book” campaign goodness, McDonalds is giving one lucky reader a week’s worth of Happy Meal coupons, a $10 Amazon gift card, and a copy of a Happy Meal book.
So until I can figure out the whole no-working-and-eating-French-fries-all-day thing, why don’t you go ahead and grab a Happy Meal, read to a kid (any will do), donate some books, and win a little something for your efforts. Good luck!
