My Big Wimmelbook--On the Farm

Description

Welcome to Wimmelworld--a land of few words, yet endless entertainment--for curious kids ages 2 to 5!

In these one-of-a-kind picture books, every page is bursting with life--and tons to discover!

Children as young as two 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.

In My Big Wimmelbook--On the Farm, adventure awaits on Wimmelfarm. From the stable to the wheat field to the rodeo, follow each character as they go about their day--whether watching Jessie the handywoman fix one thing after another or hoping Cousin Grady will survive his next blunder!

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.

Reviews

"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
