The Most Underappreciated Kid’s Show

Kid’s shows, who hasn’t watched them?  There are many great kids’ shows out there, many of which come from the beloved PBS network. Though there are a few that stand out above the rest. These shows are not only entertaining, but they also teach valuable lessons. Just like the parents like.

Martha Speaks is a show where a dog, Martha, eats alphabet soup that travels to her brain allowing her to speak English. What kid didn’t like the idea of a talking dog? Martha Speaks is a vocabulary-building TV show targeted toward Pre-K through 2nd graders. Regardless don’t feel shame for re-watching it all in 2 weeks during the summer as someone well above that age. Most people in the show aren’t very fazed by Martha being a talking dog, so the concept doesn’t get overused. Martha often hangs out with her owner Helen, a 10-year-old girl, her friends, and their other nonspeaking dog, Skits. Most episodes are them goofing off together using the vocab words of the day and it ends with a lesson of some sort, but its so much more. Of course you wouldn’t know until you watch it.
