    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.

    The Horn Book Guide
    "Heinz describes the course of the day from dawn to night in a pond. The food chain, and the many close escapes involved in animals' attempts to eat one another, provide narrative momentum and some suspense. The warm, detailed illustrations encourage the reader to sympathize with the animals and their quest for survival, while the matter-of-fact tone of the text eschews sentimentality."

    "Heinz introduces readers to the drama of nature in this day-in-the-life look at Butternut Hollow Pond, where hunters become hunted and creatures all play a part in a complex, interdependent life cycle. Water striders, dragonflies, mallard ducks, snapping turtles, and many other animals appear in Marstall's detailed illustrations."
