Puppy Martha

Martha tells the story of her life in the animal shelter. Before she was adopted, Martha considered all of the possibilities--maybe she would become a police dog, or be adopted by a family in a bowling alley!

Martha Speaks is an animated series on 'GBH KIDS. Aimed at viewers between the ages of four and seven, Martha's educational goal is to teach kids new words. Based on the children's book series by Susan Meddaugh and published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, the series stars Martha, a beloved family dog. She is accidentally fed alphabet soup — this gives her the power of speech and the chance to speak her mind to anyone that will listen.The goal of Martha Speaks is to increase oral vocabulary, the words we use when we talk. The shows are not trying to teach kids how to read. They are designed to help kids understand what words mean when they hear them; words like retrieve, sprout, and crave. Vocabulary is one thing that predicts if children will be good readers. Once they are in school and they see these words, children will need to know what they mean. If children have heard the words before, that familiarity will help them as they learn to read. Martha Speaks is designed to teach up to 20 words in each show. And how better to get kids excited about learning and trying out new words than with a talking dog, who just can't stop talking?!

ABOUT MARTHA SPEAKS

Martha Speaks, a vocabulary-based children's series from the WGBH creators of Curious George and Arthur, is designed to bolster the oral vocabulary of 4- to 7-year-olds, engaging them with humor and imagination. In season two, all-new episodes continue the adventures of the family dog who found her voice in a bowl of alphabet soup. Along the way, kids at home will be introduced to words from perspective to portrait, reminiscing to recycled.
