Keep your 1st 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.
The 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 1st graders are the following titles:
Nate the Great and Me: The Case of the Fleeing Fang
Book written by: Marjorie Weinman Sharmat
Book published by: Yearling
Are you ready to become a great detective like Nate the Great? See if you can help find Annie’s dog, Fang. This kit will help you sharpen your detective skills and enjoy this delightful story all the way to its happy end.
Andy Shane and the Barn Sale Mystery
Book written by: Jennifer Richard Jacobson
Book published by: Candlewick Press
This kit takes you right along with Andy Shane as he makes plans to celebrate Granny Webb’s unbirthday. The exciting conclusion to the kit is as rewarding as the ending of the book.
Buffalo Before Breakfast
Book written by: Mary Pope Osborne
Book published by: Random House
It’s a good thing Jack has his leather bag with him to collect things as he and Annie are transported back in time nearly 200 years by the Magic Tree House. This kit gives you a bag too and things to collect as you are taught how to hunt buffalo by a Lakota boy.
Galaxy Zack: Monsters in Space
Book written by: Ray O’Ryan
Book published by: Little Simon
Zack is shocked when he goes to school one day and finds a monster in his seat! Who/what is this creature? At first Zack is scared, but he soon finds that this monster, Al, is kind and friendly. Zack and Al become fast friends, and Zack goes to Al’s planet and meets all kinds of other monsters. Zack realizes that just because Al looks different, it doesn’t mean that he’s weird or strange.
Zack finds many cool things on his trip to Nebulon. Who knows? Maybe you’ll find them in this kit!
Some of the kits contains food items best used within 30-60 days of purchase.
We want the incentives used in our kits to be a surprise to the children. We also realize grownups will need to know what’s inside. A complete list of objects used as incentives for this kit is available in the “FOR PARENTS AND TEACHERS” envelope included inside the kit. Please retain that envelope for your reference before giving the kit to a child.
Kits will ship the first week of June. Please allow 3-8 business days for shipping. This item is currently not available for shipment outside the continental U.S.
