On this adventure, Mr. Waldorf discovers the huge Russia.
The curious canine encounters fun new friends and places while visiting Saint Petersburg, the Ural Mountains, Lake Baikai, Russian State Library & more. Silly Mr. Waldorf has a tendency to misplace his favorite reading spectacles and can't seem to find them while discovering the largest country in the world.

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.
