Marty the Martian Learns ABC Review by Lisa Barthuly & Family

Ekadoo Publishing Group

Meet Marty the Martian as he helps our little ones learn their ABC's! This cute, sturdy & colorful board book will engage young children with its illustrations, and storylines. This book contains easy to comprehend reading material, and each letter is taught with a series of words beginning with the featured letter, such as:

"N: A newborn duckling that Marty just met
Had a long nose, a short neck and a funny hat.
The whole family was near the nest
A noisy dragonfly was their guest."


"E: Early in the morning, Marty opened his eyes.
He saw an elephant with big ears
And eight little mice!

This 24 page story-board book follows Marty on his mission to learn to read, and introduces the many friendly characters he meets along the way. A fun, and imaginative book for our youngest learners!

Look for more books with Marty and his friends in 2006, and stop by Ekadoo's website to see all of their offerings at
