The Spectacular World of Waldorf by Barbara Terry is a storybook as well as a coloring book. It features a lovable canine named Mr. Waldorf who has misplaced his reading spectacles and can't seem to find them. While he travels through Texas, Mr. Waldorf keeps looking for his glasses as he visits the Alamo, rides a bull in a rodeo, explores mountains in a hot air balloon, tastes spicy food, sees large derricks in oil fields, meets NASA astronauts, sees tumbleweeds blowing by and more. As children hear the story and color the pictures of Mr. Waldorf’s fun adventures, they need to search each page to see if they can find the missing spectacles. Children will also learn new words such as spectacular and spectacles.
Children will fall in love with Mr. Waldorf and will learn a lot about the great state of Texas as they hear the story and color the pictures in The Spectacular World of Waldorf by Barbara Terry. Older children will enjoy the quick picture trip through Texas and learn a lot about interesting geographic places and important people. Younger children will be challenged to find the spectacles (reading glasses) that Mr. Waldorf lost and is looking for. The large drawing of Mr. Waldorf on each page could be colored with crayons, but the details in the backgrounds may need colored pencils to enhance the fine lines. Watch your child bring these cute pictures to life as they color them and then tell you the story.
