"Martha Speaks Meet Martha" & "How About a Kiss For Me?"

The Children's Book Review


"Martha Speaks:  Meet Martha" written by Karen Barss (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, $12.99, 23  pages) is all about a talking dog and adventures galore based on the characters created by Susan Meddaugh. A super picture reader, a small package, highly recommended.

"How  About A Kiss For Me?" by Todd Tarpley and illustrator Liza Woodruff  for ages 0 to 2 (Penguin/Dutton, $16.99) is all about a little boy who embarks on a "kissing adventure" involving dogs, cats, bats, cows, etc. Delightful looking, fun for parents to read aloud and more fun for little ones to listen to -- this book is a winner.
