What is the life of a penguin really like? How are planets formed? Inquisitive minds will enjoy finding the answers in a selection of eight Happy Meal books from publisher Dorling Kindersley’s (DK) “Watch Me Grow” and “WOW” series. It is a great way to spend some quality time together while exploring an animal’s-eye view of life or experiencing an enriching show and tell on topics like science and ancient history.

With so much to absorb, mothers would know that effective learning can never happen on an empty stomach. This is why McDonald’s Happy Meals offer the perfect balance with fun and flavourful meal options each accompanied by a Happy Meal book.
