On July 20th, PBS Kids and Paramount Home Entertainment released “Martha Speaks: Martha Goes to School” on DVD! My boys enjoy watching the “Martha Speaks” series and liked this DVD as much as the other ones. PBS Kids is constantly coming out with new, fun and educational shows and this is just one of them. You can find the DVD in stores or online, retailing for $14.99.


The endearing beloved family dog, Martha, has a lot to say in her new release Martha Goes to School.  Join Martha and her family as they discover hundreds of new words to teach children.  Based on the successful children’s book series by Susan Meddaugh, and now airing on PBS KIDS, the DVD features eight new-to-DVD episodes, printable coloring pages, resources for parents and descriptive video service for the visually impaired.


Martha Goes to School – T.D. thinks it would be funny to put Martha’s name on the list for substitute teachers.

T.D. and the Light Bulb of Doom – T.D. panics after he leaves his school project until the last minute.

Skits Monkeys Around – Skits loves Malcolm (TV’s blue monkey) so much he wants to be Malcolm.

Ain’t Nothin’ but a Pound Dog, part 1 – Martha loses her collar and winds up in the animal shelter.

Ain’t Nothin’ but a Pound Dog, part 2 – Martha decides she can’t leave her shelter friends behind.

Truman’s Secret – Where has Truman been hiding and why is he acting so weird?

What’s Bothering Bob? – What’s gotten into Bob?  He’s off his chain and chasing Truman all over town.
