RIF Activites Spark the Imagination and Encourage Reading

RIF offers scores of activities for readers of every age group and every skill level. Our activities provide solid learning opportunities through interaction with peers and siblings, and promote literacy through structured learning opportunities with parents. Best of all, they’re fun.

Cultural Heritage gives children a sense of how big and varied the world is through exploration activities, including Around the World in 80 Books¸ an adventure using a map, thumbtacks and a felt-tip pen.

Drama features activities to delight the imagination, including Hats on for Reading, which encourages play acting as kids dress in hats while parents read their favorite stories.

Writing activities reinforce good reading habits, so give children notebooks and pencils so they can participate in Travelog, which encourages kids to maintain a journal, scrapbook, and photo album during family vacation.
