Frequently Asked Questions

Since 2019, we have been making books more accessible to all Australian families with our Free Books for Kids program. Every family is invited to collect a free book each week for 8 weeks during the campaign period when they visit their local BIG W store, with absolutely no purchase necessary. New titles will be released each Thursday from 18th February and will be available nationally while stocks last. We will also be releasing audio recordings weekly on the ‘BIG W Free Books for Kids’ podcast which can be found on Acast, Spotify or Apple Podcasts.
