"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, diorama-like 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 Wimmelbooks, 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
