RIF Reading Planet was developed by Reading is Fundamental, Inc (RIF) a children's literacy nonprofit organization. It includes interactive reading games, writing activities, book reviews, author interviews, coloring pages, and more.
This site is vibrant and colorful with child-friendly graphics.
The content is organized into four major sections that are represented graphically on the main page. Internal pages have a top navigation bar that uses the same graphics as the main page.

Kids will love this online world of books created just for them! Each of the four main areas of the site -- Activity Lab, Game Station, Express Yourself, and Book Zone -- offer fun activities that kids of all ages will enjoy. Fun activities include printing and illustrating stories, making a seasonal collage, and choosing a picture to color in the interactive coloring book. Children will also enjoy entertaining and educational games and activities like writing stories with other kids, creating poems in the Poetry Splatter, and making their own word puzzles. For help in choosing the right books, kids can browse books to find summaries, book covers, and other kids' ratings and reviews. They can also read all about their favorite authors and find out how to send them fan mail. Registration is available for using all the features of the site, but it is free to anyone.
