    DESCRIPTION D.J. Ward
    This planet has a giant volcano three times as tall as Earth’s tallest mountain. It has a canyon that would stretch across most of the United States. And it is covered with craters, including an enormous one that is more than 1,200 miles wide. What is this place? It is Mars—the red planet that is Earth’s next-door neighbor. Learn amazing facts about Mars in this fast-paced glimpse into the future of science.

    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.
