Big W free books - that's four words we love to hear! Nothing gets kids reading like seeing their favourite characters gracing the pages, and the beloved Sesame Street crew including Elmo, Grover, Big Bird and The Cookie Monster is about to make storytime more exciting - and accessible - for young learners! A series of heart-warming stories around individuality, dreaming big and understanding differences are available in BIG W stores, and the best part is the books are absolutely FREE.

The Big W free books campaign means more than 2.6 million Sesame Street books will be available to Australian families at no cost with no purchase necessary.

BIG W Free Books for Kids program is in partnership with Sesame Workshop - the non-profit educational organisation behind Sesame Street whose mission is to help kids grow smarter, stronger, and kinder.

“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.” Teresa Rendo, BIG W’s Acting Managing Director said about the initiative.
