Overview

For Martha and the other dogs in town, Saturday-night fireworks are the worst part of summer—they are so scary to canines with their sensitive ears! Crabby Mrs. Demson couldn’t agree more. In fact, she’s collecting signatures for a petition to ban fireworks, and Martha is happy to add her pawprint to the list. But when Helen and her friends are devastated about the fireworks ban, Martha realizes that she helped Mrs. Demson ruin their fun. Can Martha find a way to reverse the ban and still protect her doggy ears?

With fun word activities that highlight the new vocabulary, including a complete-the-sentence activity.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Martha has made it to TV so many kids know that she is a dog that can speak. This story is an adaptation of a screenplay by Dietrich Smith. It is a fairly straightforward story. The kids love fireworks, but the dogs do not because of the loud noise. A lady in town is actively working to get the fireworks stopped (why is never explained) and Martha and the dogs work hard to get as many people as possible to sign the petition to support that position. They succeed but the kids are really disappointed. Then Helen comes up with a possible solution to make the dogs and kids happy. The back cover offers a few activities for kids to try to see if they understood the story. It is interesting that when Martha speaks to people in the park they do not seem to find it the least bit strange to have a dog talking to them. A Level 1 book in the "green Light Readers" series—Guided reading Level J and Reading Recovery Level 17. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
