    DESCRIPTION Ron Fridell
    After leaping from a plane, a skydiver opens a pair of carbon fiber wings and shoots through the sky at 200 miles per hour, in perfect control. Down on the ground, an Olympic pole vaulter soars to a world record on a state-of-the-art pole. A runner, born without feet, runs on space-age artificial limbs at speeds almost as fast as Olympic winners. Meanwhile, a swimmer slices through the water in a bodysuit modeled after sharkskin and shaves vital seconds off her time. How have these athletes managed such amazing feats? The answer is sports technology. Learn how science helps athletes stay safer, perform better, and have more fun.

    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.
