Each Reading Incentive Kit™ (RIK™) accompanies a well-known children’s book. Inside each RIK is a series of numbered and labeled packages containing surprises and a “think piece” related to the story. The think piece helps the reader “think” about what they just read or what they will read. The reader opens the packages at requested intervals throughout the story. As readers progress through the book, they continue to open packages, which keeps them motivated, increases comprehension, and makes reading extra fun.
