    DESCRIPTION Jane Brocket

    Images of the Interactive Book in Action
     
    Lerner Interactive Books introduce students to knowledge areas in core grade-level curriculum in an engaging format. With titles that span curriculum themes from pre-K - 5th grade, Lerner Interactive Books give readers a digital option for reading that allows them to read, hear, and interact in a way that will engage and motivate them to read more and more often. It's a fast path to deepening students' love of reading and learning.
             
    From the opening page, audio and visual cues and easy-to-use tools help guide your students through the story. As the story begins, words are highlighted while they're read aloud. This type of word distinction better supports letter and word recognition skills, and keeps kids focused on the structure of how to read.

    School Library Journal
    "A variety of textures and surfaces is shown and contrasted in this casually structured visual feast.... Not really a book on the sense of touch and not really a book on adjectives, this amalgam will work in either science or language arts classrooms. But just browsing and enjoying the lovely photos will appeal to youngsters as well." --School Library Journal
    Booklist
    "Bright, attention-grabbing, and, in some cases, enlarged photographs of hard candies, duck slippers, stone walls, and other common objects give viewers the impression that they can reach out and touch them.... Clever, indeed." --Booklist
