Description

Keep your 7th grader reading this summer the fun way!

Your child will love reading with RIK! In each kit are six to nine packages containing surprises that relate to the story. Children open them at intervals as they read.

No other reading program has proven to be as engaging, motivating, or just plain fun! Read independently or grab your friends, form a book club, do book-related activities and have fun reading with RIK.

Reading Incentives inside a reading incentive kitThe RIK Summer Reading Program includes four exciting kits selected by elementary school librarian and RIK founder, Paula Ruesch. Enjoy Paula’s Picks, or custom design your own bundle.  Kits can be ordered with or without books. The RIK surprise packages track with a specific book, so the book is necessary, but if you have the book or want to check it out from the library, that’s totally cool. We are big fans of libraries.

Included in the RIK Summer Reading bundle for 7th graders are the following titles:

Schooled
