Giveaway: Martha Speaks


The winner is ...Lisa from Cheerios Underfoot

One of the books for The Itty-Bitty Bookworm's August curriculum is Martha Speaks by Susan Meddaugh. This is a hilarious story about a dog who learns to talk after being fed alphabet soup by her young child owner. Martha, the talking dog, speaks, and speaks, and speaks. In fact, she talks so much, that Helen begins to wish Martha had never learned to talk at all. When Helen announces this, Martha is devestated. Will she ever be able to make up for all of her wild and crazy hijinks? As you read to find out, you and your child will laugh out loud!

The PBS KIDS website contain tons of activity ideas and printables which correspond with the episodes. It is a great resource for parents and teachers. In addition, it offers games, coloring sheets, and videos for kids.

I am giving away 1 copy of this zany, comical book, which also includes a set of colorful stickers. To enter, leave a comment about a funny book that cracks you and your child up.

What a great giveaway! We love Martha Speaks and I've taken to recording the episodes on TIVO too.
Other favorites that make us smile include: Dirty Bertie, Silly Sally, and Where the Sidewalk Ends...

I sent out a Tweet and joined the facebook fan club!

We DVR Martha Speaks, too!

Our favorite silly book, recently, is Flat Stanley. While it's not a comedy, per se, the whole idea of a 2D boy cracks my guys up. Great reading for my 7 yo.

I'll spread the word...

So my twin two-year old girls love Sandra Boynton books and their favorites are "Opposites" & "Blue Hat, Red Hat." (My girls finish the sentences!) And they laugh hysterically about that silly turkey who can't seem to put his clothes on right!

My daughter thinks 'I Love You Stinky Face' is a hilarious book. I try to play the role and act like I sniff her hair and hold my nose when I read that phrase in the book haha.

My kids love the Robert Munsch books. My youngest always laughed at Sandra Boynton books when he was younger. Curious George is always a favorite, too.
