Martha Speaks: Teacher’s Pet
This story was about Martha, a talking dog, who gets to be a substitute teacher. Her human friend, TD, puts her on the list because his mom is the Vice Principal. The janitor says, “No dogs allowed!” but Martha slips in through the window. Luckily the subject she is supposed to teach is animal behavior. It turns out she does a pretty good job, although she is biased in the oral reports since she doesn’t like cats. Martha decides she doesn’t want to be a teacher.
TD, however, thinks she did such a good job he figures out a way Martha can help him and another friend, Alice, in Spanish class. He feeds Martha Mexican Alphabet Soup his uncle makes and that makes her speak Spanish. Then Martha can translate their reports for them. After Alice gives her report she tells the teacher what happened because she thinks it might have been cheating. The teacher explains that it was ok because it was good practice, and he shows Alice she learned more than she realized.
I liked this book because I really like Martha Speaks and these stories were great. I watch the show and it was fun to read a book about characters I like so much.
