Martha Speaks: Martha's Nose for News

Written by Susan Meddaugh

When Carolina starts Carolina's Town Crier, a newspaper with a kids' (and dogs')-eye view of the goings-on in Wagstaff City, the whole gang wants to be reporters! Read two stories about the ins and outs of news reporting in this book: First, Martha and Skits dig up a BIG scoop, but nobody believes them! Next, Martha learns the difference between gossip and news as she hones her reporting skills. Based on the popular PBS show Martha Speaks, this chapter book features a glossary of new words and activities to help rookie reports start their own newspaper. Visit to play the "Town Crier" game and print your own newspaper!
