JumpStart Reading for First Graders is a JumpStart game released by Knowledge Adventure circa 1997 that focuses on teaching language arts at the first grade level. It was entitled JumpStart 1st Grade Reading until about 2000. It is also known as Jump Ahead Reading Year 1 in Europe.
At the beginning of the game, Frankie introduces himself to the player and invites the player to his new home. Inside the living room, Frankie points out a framed photo of himself with his old friends from the circus. He says that he used to be a juggler, and begins demonstrating some juggling tricks, when suddenly one of Frankie's old circus friends, Katia, appears in his living room.
Katia tells Frankie that Mel, the magician she was formerly an assistant to, was performing mean tricks on the other circus performers. Eventually, his tricks caused the ringmaster to fire him. This made Mel very angry, and he turned all of the top performers into jigsaw puzzle pieces and scattered the pieces around the carnival. Frankie vows to help Katia and the other performers.
