Wombat Books is Giving the Gift of Reading this Christmas

Christmas is the time for giving! Wombat Books is giving away books to children who normally wouldn’t receive them under the Christmas tree. It’s a chance for families, who usually couldn’t afford to do so, to give the gift of reading.

There are four free books available in limited quantities to be given away this Christmas to children in need.


1. Better than a Superhero

2. Marlo Can Fly

3. Nerrilee’s World

4. Possum Games

Books will be shipped with plenty of time before Christmas for requests put in before December 10.
