Martha is visiting a farm for the first time. Along with learning new words, Martha loves to learn new skills so she volunteers to help out with the chores. But who knew that would mean rising before the sun? And how was she supposed to know the sheep weren't allowed in the house anyway? She doesn't think she's cut out to be a farm dog--until she's able to raise the alarm that a coyote is on the loose!
Fun new vocabulary activities include a word scramble and matching animals game.
Susan Meddaugh was born and raised in Montclair, New Jersey. She graduated from Wheaton College, where she studied French literature and fine arts. After working briefly with an advertising agency in New York, she moved to Boston and worked at a publishing company for ten years, first as a designer, then art editor, and finally as art director. While there, she did the illustrations for GOOD STONES (Houghton Mifflin) by Anne Epstein, and then decided to strike out on her own as a freelance illustrator and creator of children's books. Since that time, Susan has written and illustrated many popular books for children, including MARTHA SPEAKS, which was chosen as a NEW YORK TIMES Best Illustrated Book for 1992. In 1998 she was awarded the New England Book Award, given by the New England Booksellers Association to recognize a body of work. Her work also was acknowledged with a New York Times Best Illustrated Award. She lives in Sherborn, Massachusetts.
