PBS Kids will premiere new episodes of popular animated children’s series Arthur and Martha Speaks, beginning November 11. The new outings feature guest voice actors Alan Cumming and Kenan Thompson. The adventures continue online with a new series of Martha Speaks interactive nonfiction books that help build vocabulary. Produced by WGBH, both series help kids build pro-social and literacy skills.
