Kids who can’t get enough of construction equipment will love this seek-and-find introduction to literacy, full of busy diggers!

The My Big Wimmelbooks series is an effortless introduction to literacy that lets beginning readers ages 2 to 5 be the storyteller—with hours of seek-and-find hands-on learning.

Nearly wordless, My Big Wimmelbooks® invite young children to explore vibrant, full-spread illustrations of everyday scenes. Little ones love pointing out what they can find, while older kids can seek out recurring star characters and imagine their unfolding story lines!

Diggers at Work! is packed with digging machines of all kinds, alongside a crew of hard workers who are tearing down houses, shoveling dirt, and moving scrap. This is our first wimmelbook to include a spread with illustrated diagrams, helping curious kids point out different parts of diggers, like the bucket, cab, and engine. Promising hours of imaginative fun, wimmelbooks are a blast—and an excellent introduction to reading.

About Wimmelbooks

Wimmelbooks originated in Germany decades ago and have become a worldwide sensation with children (and adults!) everywhere. My Big Wimmelbooks is the first-ever English-language Wimmelbook series. Its books have been praised as “lively . . . and abounding with humor and detail” (WSJ) and likely to “make any parent’s heart sing” (NYT).

About the Author

Max Walther is a Germany-based book designer and illustrator with over ten years of experience illustrating children’s books. Walther studied design and illustration at the University of Applied Sciences in Mainz, Germany, and loves telling stories through illustration in his wimmelbooks. He is the author of six My Big Wimmelbooks, and his titles are consistently among the most popular in the series.

Praise For…

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 Wimmelbook, 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
