Unlocking Magical Experience Through Reading

A book is a dream that you hold in your book – Neil Gaiman

McDonald’s Malaysia is thrilled to announce that they are embarking on a mission to promote the passion for reading amongst Malaysian children. As part of their efforts to nurture and build a generation of children who love to read, McDonald’s will for the very first time offer story books in their Happy Meal.

The campaign will also see reading activities and session hosted by Ronald McDonald himself throughout the campaign period. In conjunction with this campaign, my children and I attended the magical experience through reading it was held at Kota Damansara.
I like the campaign because it's about promote the passion for reading amongst Malaysians. It is good for the children to build interest in reading. It is part of McDonald's nation building effort to nurture a generation who loves to read. 

The campaign involves 50 family restaurants and 10 flagship family restaurants across Malaysia playing host to exciting reading activities for six weeks starting from 9 October 2014 to 19 November 2014.
