My Big Wimmelbook—All Aboard the Train!

product image
$12.95
My Big Wimmelbooks let kids ages 2 to 5 be the storytellers with hours of seek-and-find hands-on learning--and fun!

In these oversize board books, every page is bursting with life--and tons to discover! 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.

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.

My Big Wimmelbook--All Aboard the Train! takes kids on a few fun train rides as a busy cast of characters go on journeys from Wimmeltown Train Station to their final destinations. From boarding the crowded platform to wandering through the aisles upon aisles of train cars, watching the pretty scenery, and more--plenty of interesting things are happening along the way. All aboard!

About Wimmelbooks

My Big Wimmelbook—Good Night

product image
$12.95
My Big Wimmelbooks let kids ages 2 to 5 be the storytellers with hours of seek-and-find hands-on learning--and fun!

My Big Wimmelbooks are popular daytime activities for kids: In these oversize board books, every page is bursting with life--and tons to discover! 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.

Wimmelbooks invite kids to make their own way through the busy Wimmelworld they encounter, and to craft their own stories with the help of imaginative prompts. But sometimes kids don't have all day! Rather than one long story that progresses from page to page, in My Big Wimmelbook--Good Night, six nighttime scenes--from a slumbering fairy-tale woodland to a dozing toy store--depict a few hidden characters going about their night as they prepare for bed. Why are the toy rabbits having a pillow fight with the zebra? What are Jim the Giant's friends yelling up at him to try to wake him up?

With soothing subdued colors and activity on every page, kids will be entertained as they drift to sleep. Able to be returned to again and again, Wimmelbooks are hours upon hours of fun--and an effortless introduction to literacy to boot.

My Bison

product image
$17.95
In a clearing by the forest, a little girl befriends a bison. Each winter they meet, sit by the fire, and share stories or simply enjoy the silence together until it is time for the bison to rejoin his herd in the spring. Their bond deepens as they grow older and the years go by, but one winter her bison does not return. After searching for him in the woods, the little girl, now a grown-up, comes to understand that though her bison is gone, he will also always be with her. Gaya Wisniewski's evocative charcoal-and-ink illustrations, enriched by the gradual addition of blue watercolor, masterfully convey this tender, affecting story of friendship and understanding the passage of time.

Napoleon vs. the Bunnies

product image
$17.99
The renowned Napoleon Bonaparte faces an army of a different sort in this witty, unconventional telling of a true event in his life.Everyone knows the Battle of Waterloo was Napoleon Bonaparte's most crushing defeat, right? Well, some beg to differ. It seems there was another less famous (though perhaps more humiliating) surrender in his past. Let's call it Bunnyloo. In 1807, Napoleon had ordered his chief of staff to round up rabbits for a celebratory hunt, only, he collected domesticated rabbits, not wild ones. So, when the rabbits were released to begin the hunt, they didn't run away. Instead, they ran straight at Napoleon and his hunting party. Now, some might think Napoleon --- king overthrower, army commander, territory conqueror --- would only laugh at an advancing battalion of cute, fluffy bunnies. Think again!J. F. Fox's funny, quirky picture book story is based on a little-known event in the life of one of history's most notable figures and greatest generals. With an afterword containing further information about him and what's known about the ill-fated rabbit hunt, it makes a highly entertaining introduction to Napoleon. It also could spark lively discussions about notions of power, strength and courage, promoting inquiry-based learning. Adorable bunnies loom large in Anna Kwan's fun brightly colored illustrations that lean heavily toward shades of blue, white and red. Adding to the read-aloud appeal, dialogue bubbles in the illustrations contain easily decipherable French words, along with English text as spoken with a French accent.
