My Big Wimmelbooks are hours of seek-and-find, hands-on learning and fun for kids ages 2 to 5—and now, they’re small enough to carry around everywhere!

In these board books, every page is bursting with life—and tons to discover! Wimmelbooks are virtually instruction-free, inviting kids to make their own way through the busy Wimmelworld they encounter, and to craft their own stories. 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.

My Little Wimmelbook®—A Day at the Zoo invites young readers to follow characters through the Wimmelzoo, from the wildcat enclosure to the aviary to the monkey house and more. It’s the same animal-filled day of fun, made just the right size for kids to bring on their own excursions.

About Wimmelbooks

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

Praise For…

The large board books in the My Big Wimmelbook series are full of lively, crowded tableaux of people and animals going about their business in different settings. [Wimmelbooks] abound with witty details to draw in younger children . . . and older toddlers will want to follow the wordless interactions that spill from one page to the next in these eventful pictures.

— The Wall Street Journal

You know the kid who can conjure an entire imaginary world by animating, say, the sugar packets she finds at the restaurant table? That one will thank you when you put any volume of My Big Wimmelbook in front of her. . . . Picture Richard Scarryesque, dioramalike spreads with a hint of Where’s Waldo? junior detective. The combination should encourage long contemplative sit-downs that will make any parent’s heart sing.
— The New York Times Book Review

An opening spread outlines particular characters and objects for readers to locate, including a couple with a selfie stick, reporters on the scene, and a pizza delivery man. . . . The spreads aren’t as jam-packed as a typical Where’s Waldo? panorama, allowing for younger readers to spot characters and objects with ease.
— Publishers Weekly

With My Big Wimmelbook, kids experience their self-efficacy as something special, which makes them proud and, in turn, activates new ‘learning.’ The inner motivation that comes with their desire to satisfy their curiosity is the ultimate source of ongoing learning.
— Dr. Kristina Unterweger, educational psychologist
