Advent Calendar Countdown: Most Popular Aussie Kids’ Books

Are you counting the days ’til Christmas in the Boomerang Books Advent Calendar?

Everyone loves an excuse to count down to D-Day, and this time the chocolate is virtual – with sweet treats being proffered in the form of a gorgeous line-up of Australian books.

After running a survey in November, Boomerang Books is featuring the top 24 most popular Aussie kids’  books, which will be revealed day by day on the Boomerang Blog.

With Shoes from Grandpa by Mem Fox at #24, I wonder which Australian tome will appear at #1, come Christmas day? Follow along and see!

In the meantime, don’t miss your opportunity to win a serious stash of books valued at $5000 by entering our Santa’s Sack Giveaway – the biggest ever book giveaway on Boomerang Books. That’s over 200 books, mostly thanks to the good people at Random House, and four lucky people will each win approximately 50 of the books on offer. It’s a Christmas book bonanza!

If you’re struggling for book ideas for Christmas, be sure to check out our Christmas Catalogue, which is busting out all over with fabulous bookish suggestions. It’s even divided into helpful topics, so you can pinpoint the right book quickly (after all, you knew Boomerang Book has over 11 million titles listed, right?).

If, like me, you’re always after another stunning children’s book, this Kids’ Reading Guide is an absolute must-flick.

Oh – and one more teensy thing (that’s actually quite big, if you ask me) . . . Boomerang Books is offering gift wrapping with purchase for just $3.50, with the opportunity to send a personal message with your gift.

Looks like a bookish Christmas is all wrapped up. Happy shopping!
