I am pretty choosy about what I let my kids watch on television. Most of the shows that we watch on a regular basis are on PBS and one of my six year old’s favorites is Martha Speaks. What’s not to love about a talking dog, right?
So when they heard that we were getting a sneak peek of a couple of brand spankin’ new episodes of one of their favorite shows, they were wicked excited!
Both of my boys sat and watched the episodes contently. I mean, they sat and watched for the entire time. Do you know what that means? They liked them!! When my boys don’t like something or something doesn’t catch their interest, trust me, I will hear all about it.
There are a lot of options out there for the kids on television (not like when I was a kid and cable hadn’t even been invented yet!!) and it makes me happy that they truly enjoy shows like Martha Speaks. For me, I love that they’re learning while they’re watching. Martha and the gang introduce new vocabulary words in each episode and isn’t it great when they learn something new and don’t even realize it? Plus, it’s a show that I feel comfortable leaving the room while they’re watching because I know it’s always positive and clean.
