Martha Speaks: A Winter's Tail by Susan Meddaugh- OPTIONAL

Meddaugh, Susan.  Martha Speaks:  A Winter’s Tail, 24 pgs.  Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Books, 2011.  $12.99.  Back cover:  “Puppy Skits loves to chase things-balls, Frisbees, chew toys, even hockey pucks.  But when Skits chases a hockey puck onto thin ice, the children can’t figure out how to save him.  Can Martha?”  This book would be loved by younger children who watch PBS Kids.  It is a cute story, but I don’t see a lot of application to the classroom.  Pre-K.  EL (K-3).  OPTIONAL.  Reviewer: SL.
