Big W is Back With More Free Books For Kids. Get Ready Bookworms!

The fantastic folk at Big W are gearing up for the fourth round of their Free Books For Kids program, so kids, free up some room on your bookshelf for your new, FREE books to collect, starting right now!

Bringing much-needed joy to families, Big W will be giving away 2.6 million books to Australian families over an eight week period, which is nothing short of HUGE. This fourth instalment of the Free Books For Kids program will take the number of books given away since the program’s inception last year, to over 11.5 million books. IMPRESSIVE, right?

You don’t even need to make a purchase in-store – you can just grab the book. TOTALLY FREE. Easy peasy.

Can’t get into Big W to collect your book? Don’t you worry, Big W have thought of that too! Helping families during this tricky time, you can tune into the Big W Free Books For Kids podcast for the audio recording of the book titles as they’re released. You’ll find the podcast at Acast, Spotify or Apple Podcast platforms.

For Victorian customers, a spokesman for Big W says “Additionally, the program won’t be available in Victoria, for now. “Being a responsible retailer means keeping our customers and teams safe. For this reason, we have made the decision to press pause on Free Books for Kids in Victoria for the time being, as we know that some families who shop with us won’t be able to, or may not feel comfortable visiting our stores over this period as regularly as they would like.  We will bring our Free Books back when the time is right. In the meantime, we encourage our Victorian customers to enjoy the weekly podcasts.”

Hang in there Victoria, we’re all thinking of you.
