    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.

    About the Author
    Jane Sutcliffe was born in Providence, Rhode Island, in the days when library fines were a penny. One of her earliest memories was the weekly trip to the local library with her father. She's loved books ever since. Her childhood was fairly average. In fact, it was so average that all her friends had pretty much the same childhood. They all went to the same school, and attended the same church on Sundays. Their mothers all called them home to supper at the same time. On weekends they visited grandmothers and aunties who spoke a different language when they didn't want the children to understand.
     
    To live any differently seemed exciting and exotic to her, so she began to read biographies, just to get a peek at how other people lived day to day, in different times and places. When she was 10 or 11, she spent a whole year reading nothing but biographies.
     
    So it wasn't a big surprise when Jane began to write them, too. So far she's written nearly two-dozen biographies as well as other nonfiction books and articles. She loves everything about writing: the research, the sweating over the perfect word or phrase or sentence, the joy in the finished product. But she especially loves the time she spends visiting readers at schools. She lives in rural Connecticut with her husband, Skip, their dog Willy, assorted cows and goats—and lots and lots of books.
