Ratings and Reviews
I’ve been using this app with my 3 year old, partly for his speech, but to also give him a head start on reading. He’s blasting his way through the app and loves showing everyone how far he’s got and inviting them to play with him. He’s able to recognise letters and match them with the sound and vice versa, and carries this through to every day life when he’s beginning to try to read words he sees.
One criticism is that it’s too easy to add additional players to the game, meaning that he has made the maximum amount of players, which leads to him playing the same sounds over and over instead of working consecutively through the game if i’m not guiding him to the main one that is the furthest on. Adding the need for an adult to oversee new players being added would cut down on this.
All in all, a brilliant app that has helped with speech difficulty, helped concentration and coordination and makes learning extremely fun for a bright 3 year old.
Brilliant! My kids love it!
I’ve tried so many learning programs and apps to help my Autistic son, he’s high functioning and clever but really struggled to concentrate during the phonics lessons, any English, reading and writing classes at school, it had a huge impact on his reading abilities, which has a knock on affect with everything else. He hates writing and anything that looks like school work. I quickly worked out he would quite happily learn with a fun computer program or a fun app on his iPad, however a lot we’ve tried are quite basic or boring. I am so glad I found Teach my Monster, not only is it fun but very good at teaching sounds to my child, who just thinks he’s playing a game, he’s really motivated to get on to the next level. Excellent app! Well done!

That's great to hear! We hear of so many kids who prefer to learn through play (what better way is there?!) and we're so pleased that Teach Your Monster to Read helps kids do just that. Well done to you and your son for finding what works for him. :)
Great way to encourage young children with their phonics and early reading
We love the Teach your monster to read game! We have it on most of the phones and tablets in the house. It has really helped my daughter progress quickly with her reading. She loves making new monsters so she can start again too, which has been a great way for her to practise and cement her knowledge of the earlier sounds.
She enjoys the different challenges set by the various characters she meets along the way. It is a game that she comes back to almost every day, she never gets bored of it and she sees it as a reward/treat. I can definitely see the improvement in her reading ability and I think this game has played a big part in that.
