    DESCRIPTION Sylvia Vanden Heede
    When Wolf finds a fact-filled book in the library, he thinks he will at last outsmart his clever cousin Dog.

    The two cousins swap fascinating facts about mummies and skeletons; robots, knights, and pirates; dinosaurs and dragons; rockets and the moon.

    But Wolf is wild and Dog is tame—these two always find there's just as much to learn about friends and enemies, setting traps, playing tricks and chewing bones.

    What Dog Knows is a fresh and funny mix of fiction and facts for inquisitive readers. It is packed with information, activities, quizzes, rhymes and stories.

    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.
