A special thank you to Waldorf Publishing and NetGalley for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
A comical Labrador is the latest hit in the new children's book travel series, THE SPECTACULAR WORLD OF WALDORFMr. Waldorf Travels to the Great State of Texas, The second largest state in the US by both area and population, and featured in the first installment by Beth Ann Stifflemire and Barbara Terry.
Mr. Waldorf is a lovable and adventurous canine on a voyage to see the United States and the world.
His first stop is the State of Texas where he meets cowboys, learns to line dance, rides a bull, attends the rodeo, and hurdles cattle. He visits the Alamo, the famous River Walk, and historic sites, and explores Dallas and meets all sorts of friends.
In Dallas, he attends football games, and makes his way to Houston, San Antonio, and the state capital, Austin where he discovers beautiful and sweet smelling wildflowers. From oil, a judge in hot sauce competition, and plenty of spicy Mexican food.
With bold colorful illustrations, ideal for kids ages seven-nine. From second-third grade reading level. In addition, younger children will enjoy the images while parents or older siblings read to them.
My granddaughter, Avery is in AIG classes (3rd grade) and she gives the series her “thumbs up and seal of approval!” My grandson, Brady, (1st grade) loved the adventure with lots of fun along the way.
Educational, informative, adventurous, and entertaining!
Well-crafted, a great way to help children learn about different cultures, diversity, languages, geographical areas, while assisting them with reading, and social studies, as well as introducing them to new things.
A clever fun way to help kids explore other parts of the country in the privacy of their own home or school. Parents, grandparents, educators, teachers, and kids will love Mr. Waldorf and will want to follow him to the many cities, and parts of the country where he explores. A fun learning experience!
Mr. Waldorf loves to read and needs his specs. He tends to lose them along the way. Readers will need to help him find them. This comical Labrador draws children into his whimsical adventures in search of his lost reading spectacles for a little mystery.
The strong visual narrative makes this an appealing choice for a wide range of ages. By the turn of the last page, children will immediately begin imagining the next adventure.
Catch the train and join Waldorf, as he travels to his next stop. Coming up: Alaska, the largest state in the US. Collect them all- Ideal for gift giving.
