When Martha's family brings her home from the pound as a puppy, she barks and woofs like any other dog. But after Helen feeds her a bowl of alphabet soup, Martha begins to speak! As readers meet Martha and her family, they'll soon learn how fun and challenging living with a talking dog can be.
This book uses picture symbols within the text to help introduce lovable Martha and her fun-loving family and friends to beginning readers. Includes a cut-out flashcard game.
