My Big Wimmelbook – Animals Around the World


Wimmelbooks foster imagination and conversation, so much to look at and name! This is one of our favorites, and since it’s a board book, no worries about ripped pages!

In these one-of-a-kind picture board 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 story line 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—Animals Around the World, go on a journey with a pair of wildlife photographers, a daredevil adventurer, and more, as they see lions, tigers, dolphins—animals of all types in a variety of landscapes—from the Antarctic region to the African plains and beyond!

Wimmelbooks originated in Germany decades ago and have become a worldwide sensation with children (and adults!) everywhere.
