As picture books for children go this offers more than just a pleasant reading experience. This is the beginning of a series and said series provides information and education in a very entertaining and painless manner. In addition, the oft used but still extremely effective act of, including a lost or hidden object turns the reading experience into a game.
This specific book deals with a visit to
Alaska where Mr. Waldorf, a walking upright
and talking Golden Labrador, discovers the sights and sounds of travel. The inclusion of gold panning and caribou as
well as Eskimos should keep the young reader engaged. Another feature that I particularly like is
that the authors infuse the love of reading into Mr. Waldorf's character. Encouraging children to read should be a goal
of every author.
I recommend the book.
This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
