Wimmelbooks invite kids to make their own way through the busy Wimmelworld they encounter, and to craft their own stories with the help of imaginative prompts. But sometimes kids don’t have all day! Rather than one long story that progresses from page to page, in My Big Wimmelbook—Good Night, six nighttime scenes—from a slumbering fairy-tale woodland to a dozing toy store—depict a few hidden characters going about their night as they prepare for bed. Why are the toy rabbits having a pillow fight with the zebra? What are Jim the Giant’s friends yelling up at him to try to wake him up?

With soothing subdued colors and activity on every page, kids will be entertained as they drift to sleep. Able to be returned to again and again, Wimmelbooks are hours upon hours of fun—and an effortless introduction to literacy to boot.

My Big Wimmelbooks let kids ages 2 to 5 be the storytellers with hours of seek-and-find hands-on learning—and fun!

In these oversize board books, every page is bursting with life—and tons to discover! Children as young as age 2 have a blast pointing out recognizable things—a blue tricycle, a hungry dog, a piggyback ride—while older kids can follow the star characters from page to page, telling their stories along the way.

How? Wimmelbooks are virtually instruction-free, inviting kids to make their own way through the busy Wimmelworld they encounter, and to craft their own stories.

  • First, you’re introduced to a unique cast of characters who are hidden in plain sight on the pages that follow.
  • As you seek them out, each character’s storyline unfolds, but it’s up to kids to interpret the scenes and create stories they think fit.
  • It’s hours upon hours of fun—and an effortless introduction to literacy to boot.

About Wimmelbooks

Wimmelbooks originated in Germany decades ago and have become a worldwide sensation with children (and adults!) everywhere. My Big Wimmelbooks is the first-ever Wimmelbook series to feature Wimmelbooks as Wimmelbooks in English. They’ve been praised as “lively . . . and abounding with humor and detail” (WSJ), likely to “make any parent’s heart sing.” (NYT)
