My Big Wimmelbook—My Busy Day invites readers to join a lively group of kids, families, friends, and workers as they go about their normal daily routines. From starting with a healthy breakfast to an exciting day at school, swinging in the park, and more, readers will have a blast recognizing their own daily lives reflected in the many activities packed into this single bustling day in Wimmeltown.
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.
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)
