    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.

    School Library Journal
    "Cleary does a masterful job of explaining such potentially dry topics as 'long vowel sounds with consonant digraphs' and 'inflectional endings' by using comic, incongruous situations to get his point across. . . In his introduction, Cleary states that: 'The bridge to literacy is one of the most important we will ever cross. It is my hope that the "Sounds Like Reading" series will help young readers to hop, gallop, and skip from one side to the other!' Mission accomplished."
