Martha Speaks celebrates Poetry Month

Martha Speaks celebrates Poetry Month

Mon, 04/02/2012 - 7:30am

In honor of National Poetry Month, WXXI-TV presents three new poetry-themed episodes.

April is National Poetry Month, and Martha from Martha Speaks is ready to celebrate with three new episodes, airing April 2 - 4 at 7:30 a.m. on WXXI-TV/HD. On Monda Martha believes former U.S. poet laureate Billy Collins must be a canine due to his wonderful poems about dogs; and T.D. helps Milo overcome his fear of reading aloud in front of other people in Billy Collins Speaks/Milo's Reading Buddy episode.

Then on Tuesday, when Martha gets struck by a falling book of five-hundred-and-one English Verbs, she instantly becomes Verb Dog in Verb Dog, When Action Calls!/Martha's Adverb Adventure.

Finally on Wednesday, armed with the power to bring nouns from books to life, the Announcer wreaks havoc on Wagstaff City in Return of the Bookbots: The Case of the Missing Words, Part One & Two
