Arizona McDonald’s restaurants are teaming up with Read On Arizona, a statewide public/private collaborative that works to improve literacy, to host Family Reading Day on Saturday, Nov. 2, to encourage families to pick up a book and read together.

 Beginning at 1 p.m., the first 100 families that visit their local McDonald’s will receive a free Scholastic book (toddler to sixth grade), ice cream cone and Read On Arizona Early Literacy Guide for Families to help support their child’s reading. McDonald’s will give away a total of 25,000 books and early literacy guides will be given away to families at Arizona McDonald’s restaurants. The free book offer excludes Walmart and mall McDonald’s restaurant locations.

Mayors in the cities of Phoenix, Goodyear, Flagstaff, Yuma and Tucson will kick off Family Reading Day by reading a book to children at their local McDonald’s restaurant.

As part of the event, McDonald’s restaurants across Arizona also will host reading screenings from 1 to 3 p.m.
