Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kathleen Monks
Helen is upset that her drawing did not win in the art contest, so her dog, Martha, decides to bake Helen a cake to cheer her up. With the help of her canine friend Skits, Martha runs home and puts on a baking DVD. First they try to gather their ingredients—but it is a tricky task with paws. Skits punches holes in the milk carton and drops the eggs. After Martha receives ingredients from a neighbor, Mrs. Parkington, she and Skits decide to mix the batter on the rug and bake it in Martha's bowl. Once the cake finishes baking, it is retrieved from the oven with the help of a pizza delivery boy, who Martha has called for this very purpose. The stray hairs from the rug and broken eggshells sticking out of the cake do not quite entice Helen and her parents, but Martha and Skits mouths are watering! Shortly after the cake is done, Helen arrives home from school to discover her cake and thanks Martha. While the story is somewhat anticlimactic, readers will take pleasure in the colorful illustrations and agreeable characters. This book is designated as a level 2 bilingual reader, with a guided reading level of J, reading recovery level of 17, and Spanish Lexile level of 390L. Spanish and English texts are easily differentiated by color and font size. End matter includes a simple chocolate cake recipe that adults and children can bake together, making it a nice addition for families that enjoy the "Martha Speaks" series. Reviewer: Kathleen Monks
