    DESCRIPTION Rebecca L. Johnson
    Thousands of satellites circle Earth. Some look down, taking pictures and gathering all sorts of information about our planet. Others look out into space, toward the planets, the Sun, and the unknown worlds beyond our galaxy. In addition to recording what is seen, satellites relay information that make it possible to use phones, watch TV, predict the weather, and much more.

    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.

    About the Author
    Rebecca L. Johnson has written dozens of national award-winning books that highlight why science is such an exciting endeavor: there are no shortages of new species, remarkable adaptations, and fresh insights into life on earth. She believes that scientists have the world's best jobs, and has been fortunate to work with many of them in far-flung corners of the planet, including Antarctica’s frozen interior and the ocean's abyss. 

    "Through my writing, I hope to show young people that the world is full of wonders, and that science is the path that leads to them."
