    DESCRIPTION Susan E. Goodman
    Whooping cranes once lived all over North America. But by the 1940s, only one tiny flock was left. These beautiful birds were in danger of dying out. Scientists decided to start a second flock of whooping cranes, but they had a serious problem to overcome. Whooping cranes need to migrate. They live up north in summer, then fly south to spend winter in warmer locations. Usually young cranes follow older cranes when they migrate. How would the scientists teach the new flock where to go?

    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.

    "This exciting story for young readers is made all the more engaging by the trials and tribulations of the whoopers and the caring and devoted scientists who managed the early lives of these magnificent birds. Children's librarians would do well to add the book to their collections for young readers."
