My Little Wimmelbook® - My Busy Day: A Look-and-Find Book (Kids Tell the Story) (My Big Wimmelbooks) (Board book)
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! With My Busy Day, children learn about daily routines as characters dash around Wimmeltown and home again.
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—My Busy Day invites young readers to follow kids, families, friends, and workers as they go about their routines from school to the mall to the playground and more. It’s the same exciting peek into what different kinds of people do each day, made just the right size for portable fun.
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)

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.

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.
