What are Wimmelbooks? Wimmelbooks display wordless panoramas teeming with tons of persons and things toddlers can find in their daily life. Younger readers (around two years of age) have a blast identifying their favorite objects-for example, things that are red, animals, or a specific element of the book that catches their eye, such as a cool car or particularly funny character. They also delight in seeing social interactions and actions familiar to them: a pat on the back, a dog that barks, a person who lends a helping hand, and so on. Then, as kids grow up and develop their cognitive abilities, they learn to engage with the book at the next level: identifying the characters in the Wimmelbooks as well as their storylines.

Here's how it works: In each Wimmelbook, children are introduced to a cast of characters on the first page. As they flip through the book, they're encouraged to seek out the characters, hidden in plain sight among the hustle and bustle of their Wimmelworld. As they do, a story unfolds from page to page as each character experiences one thing after another. Think Where's Waldo?, except that with Wimmelbooks, young readers experience a story being told right before their eyes, and effortlessly begin their path toward literacy as a result.

My Big Wimmelbook—At the Construction Site takes kids to a variety of bustling construction sites in Wimmelcity. Readers join a hardworking crew as they build roads, a downtown building, a house and more. As they go about their day, readers are challenged to spot on each page many members of the construction team—for example, Sarah the architect, a trucker named Mike, Eric the surveyor, and James, who loves to sing (no matter who’s listening!)—and many more charming characters.
