Give a Book, Get a Book

Nearly every teacher my kids have had say the same thing. They say, “You can tell they’ve been read to.” I know what they mean- they want to listen to stories, they’ve pretty much always known which way a book opens, and they’ve always had their favorites. Now one of their favorite “treat” meals is featuring one of their favorite things- books.

McDonald’s of Central Indiana is holding a “Give a Book,  Get a Book” campaign for the first half of November. Donate a gently used book at a collection location, and get a coupon for a free Happy Meal. What’s the Happy Meal toy through November 14th? Why it’s books! See all of the collection spots on Indy with Kids. We’ll be heading down to Indy Reads with some books we’re ready to pass on soon.

McDonalds USA will be distributing four books, especially written for this campaign, featuring characters making nutritional and active lifestyle choices. They are super cute, and I know they’ll be a big hit with my crew.
