Yawns are like colds. They spread! A hilarious — and infectious — cautionary tale that is so much fun, readers will beg for it again and again, whatever the consequences.

My Big Wimmelbook: A Day At the Zoo

“Abounding with humor and detail, this brain-building excursion to an illustrated zoo would be a great rainy-day substitute for a real one.”—The Wall Street Journal

In these oversize 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 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.

So welcome to Wimmelzoo! From the wildcat enclosure to the aviary to the monkey house, get ready to explore an array of animal exhibits and spot the characters there to enjoy them in My Big Wimmelbook—A Day at the Zoo.

About Wimmelbooks

They’ve been praised as “lively . . . and abounding with humor and detail” (WSJ), likely to “make any parent’s heart sing.” (NYT)

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!

Little ones will love encountering the amazing animals inside this board book, and with lots of flaps to lift, there's lots of fun to have.

The names of all the animals featured are included for easy reading and learning, and the tough board pages with rounded corners guarantee many hours of safe fun.

Pop Bottle Science presents 79 easy, hands-on experiments that probe the worlds of chemistry, physics, biology, geology, weather, the human body, and even astronomy!

In the kit is a lively, fully illustrated 96-page guide to astonishing and easy science experiments to perform at home with materials you have on hand. Each experiment begins with a challenge and ends with an explanation of the scientific principles involved. Kids can design a volcano and watch it erupt.

Simulate Jupiter's giant red spot, investigate buoyancy, demonstrate inertia, and discover the Bernoulli principle--which allows planes to fly. Plus, turn the bottle into a barometer, a thermometer, walkie-talkie, trombone, compass--or groovy lava lamp.

Kit also contains tools for the science experiments: measuring cup, balloons, and a cork bottle stopper.
