With Martha Speaks Story Maker you can make eight different interactive stories with Martha, who reads the story you’ve just made. Your stories will be saved in your library to re-read anytime you like. You can also test out all the new vocabulary you’ve heard in your stories! There are 128 words (like turret, sturdy or confused), and these words are reinforced in the Wordbone Zone quiz.

The Martha Speaks Story Maker app from PBS KIDS was developed and produced by WGBH Educational Foundation, the producers of Martha Speaks. Aimed at viewers between the ages of four and seven, the TV series’ educational goal is to teach kids new words. Based on the children's book series by Susan Meddaugh and published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, the series stars Martha, a beloved family dog. She is accidentally fed alphabet soup — this gives her the power of speech and the chance to speak her mind to anyone that will listen. Visit the series website at:

Developer needs to update

My children LOVE this app but because the developer hasn’t updated to accommodate the new iOS, the app doesn’t even open at all. That’s a bit much and we will end up deleting the app because it’s been a week now with no update!

Developer Response ,

Hi mymusicfan! We are sorry to hear this. Unfortunately, PBS KIDS is still waiting to see if we will be able to update this app to be iOS 11 compatible. Please check out Daniel Tiger Storybooks or some of our other great apps at to keep your child reading!
