What's inside a Reading Incentive Kit

Reading Is Extra Fun With RIK™

RIK™ (Reading Incentive Kit™) is a highly effective and lauded tool that incentivizes children to read, while simultaneously increasing reading skills, reading comprehension and a love of reading. Each kit 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.

“I rarely see my son finish a book he has started reading. But with the incentive kits, he was picking up a book and finishing it in a day or two.”
Janessa R
“The RIKs are awesome! My kids were so excited to read and get to the next part of the book where they get to open up a new surprise. I have never seen them so excited to read.”
Manal H
“The RIK kits were spectacular. Books came alive for my daughter. She was so excited to open the next envelope.”
Laura M
The first chapter book my daughter ever read all on her own was with a kit and in one sitting

I used this kit with my WHOLE class. The kit motivated my students to read. They BEGGED to read on in the book. After opening each envelope or box, it was fun to discuss why that item was included. The students enjoyed figuring out more about the book, or a character based on the item included in the envelope. Because of the discussion and connection to the item, their comprehension was increased
