    DESCRIPTION Kate Hosford
    Annabelle is determined to have a birthday party that stands out from the rest. The moon seems like the perfect spot! But wearing spacesuits and partying in a place with no air create some challenges that Annabelle didn't expect. Will her out-of-this-world birthday still be a blast?

    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.

    "While the engaging verse makes this book a lively read-aloud, it is the illustrations that bring the story to life. Clifton-Brown's skillful use of color and texture add depth and humor to the story while the varied text placement adds interest." --Library Media Connection
    Booklist Online
    "Clifton-Brown's whimsical painted illustrations match the spirited nature of the text, particularly in her depiction of freckled sprite Annabelle." --Booklist
