Publishers Weekly
"Rocky and Blossom's wide googly eyes exude mischievousness, especially compared to the wedged snout of the vicious wolf who chases them to a cliff's edge in the story's climax. Both the text and artwork celebrate disobedience, and those looking for a cautionary tale should look elsewhere: the ending hints that some habits (especially bad ones) die hard. Luckily, the same isn't true of Rocky and Blossom." --Publishers Weekly
The Horn Book Guide
"All sorts of sheep-related dangers—from steep cliffs to wool-crazed knitters—are humorously rendered in illustrations that make effective use of white space and dialogue bubbles." --The Horn Book Guide
Booklist
"The irascible duo is tons of fun to follow across the pages; Monroe even blasts them through panel borders to illustrate just how 'incredibly sneaky' they are. Ultimately, a dark forest, a hungry wolf, and a steep cliff figure into their comeuppance—though a final page suggests this won’t be their last dubious deed. Monroe's comic timing is positively Mo Willems–esque." --Booklist

Images of the Interactive Book in Action

Lerner Interactive Books Screenshot 1

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.

Lerner Interactive Books Screenshot 2

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.

Page Turn Feature Page Turn:

Students can turn the page using the forward arrow, clicking and dragging, or clicking the bottom corner of the book depending on their comfort level or keyboard skills.

Single Word Repeat Feature Single Word Repeat:

A unique feature of the Lerner Interactive Book is single word playback. Readers can stop, click and re-listen to the pronunciation of any word on the page. If the book includes a glossary, readers can also click on the word for a full definition.

Dual Audio Speed Feature Dual Audio Speeds:

Because not all students read at the same pace, we've included dual audio speeds based on a words-per-minute pace recommended by reading and educational researchers for struggling and on-grade-level readers. Readers start at speed one, and can move to the faster speed as they gain confidence.

Player Controls Toolbar:

Each button on the player uses color, text and easy-to-recognize icons so even the earliest of readers feel comfortable using the controls. Each tool remains consistent through all our titles, so kids can focus on reading.

Interactive Whiteboard Tools Built-in Interactive Whiteboard Tools:

Teachers, parents and librarians can use the interactive whiteboard tools to highlight or circle specific portions of the book for one-on-one, small group, or whole class instruction.

Additional Materials Additional Materials:

We've included extra material and support to help extend the learning experience. Kids can play a game or activity that relates to the story they just read, or take a simple 5-question quiz to check for understanding.
