The Call of the Wild by Jack London
The Call of the Wild Audio - Saddleback Educational Publishing

 

The Call of the Wild is told from the dog Buck's point of view.

 

I read this as a teenager but I don't remember much of it. I do remember that I received it as a Christmas present and that it was part of a package of classic books, but that's about it.

 

I'm glad I re-read this, but I didn't enjoy it as much as I did back in the day,(if I remember correctly). I am not a person that enjoys anything with animal abuse and as I get older I find myself less and less tolerant of those sorts of scenes. 

 

Overall though, this book was interesting and kind of neat, being that it was told from the dog's POV.

My Rating: 5 Stars 

 

A comical Labrador is the latest hit in the new children's book travel series, THE SPECTACULAR WORLD OF WALDORF- Mr. Waldorf Travels to Russia, featured in the fourth 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 on his journey: Mr. Waldorf Travels to the Great State of Texas, the second Mr. Waldorf Travels to the Wild State of Alaska, then Mr. Waldorf Travels to the Mysterious China and now Waldorf is making his journey to Russia, the largest country in the world! Join him as he discovers this new adventure.

 



Waldorf begins his adventure with art and culture, exploring the beautiful city of Saint Petersburg, Russia where he sees the world famous ballet. He enjoys dancing with his new friends. Next, he attends the Opera, as the singer tells an amazing story in a song.

Next, he visits the Saint Petersburg Zoo, the oldest zoo in Russia, where he visits with new friends and Polar Bears. After the zoo, he journeys through the Ural Mountains in Western Russia. He discovers jewels, mountains, and heads for the oldest, deepest freshwater lake in the world, Lake Baikal.

Next, he ventures off to the Eastern Forests of Russia and enjoys the beautiful tall trees and visit more animals and a Siberian Tiger. Next, he decides to complete his trip in the capital of Russia, called Moscow.

He loves the old colorful and beautiful buildings. He also is excited to visit the Russian State Library, where he finds plenty of books.

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, a 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. (Hi-res glossy images pop with color)!

Get on board, and join Waldorf, as he travels to his next stop. Join him as he discovers interesting and fun places. Collect them all- Idea for gift giving and the upcoming holiday season!

A special thank you to Waldorf Publishing and the author for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
