The super-popular Big W Free Books giveaway is back and this time it’s featuring all our favourite Sesame Street characters.
The Free Books For Kids program will start back from Thursday 18 February, where over 2.6 million books will be given away in store.
Big W has partnered with Sesame Workshop – the non-profit educational organisation behind Sesame Street. Customers will enjoy the heart-warming stories, featuring everybody’s favourite Sesame Street characters, including Elmo, Grover, Abby Cadabby and Cookie Monster, that share inspiring messages for kids around individuality, dreaming big and understanding differences.
In addition, some well-known celebs, including Olivia Newton-John, Rose Byrne and Rove McManus, will be hosting storytime readings on BIG W’s YouTube channel and the BIG W Free Books for Kids Podcast.

The Joy Of Reading
“Reading is one of the most important and engaging tools to help with a child’s development, and BIG W is proud to partner with leaders in learning and literacy to deliver a collection of books that will not only teach kids valuable lessons about the world around them, but also foster a love of reading. The extension into video recordings and Podcasts also means families from all over Australia can enjoy these stories together,” said Teresa Rendo, BIG W’s Acting Managing Director.
BIG W will also be donating another 40,000 books to the Australian Literacy and Numeracy Foundation (ALNF) and Good360 Australia for families living in remote and rural areas, and communities in need.
