From the charity behind the award-winning Teach Your Monster to Read comes Teach Monster – Reading For Fun, a brand new game that encourages kids to have fun and enjoy reading! Designed with experts from the UK’s Roehampton University to get kids reading more, Teach Monster – Reading For Fun inspires kids to explore a magical village full of fascinating facts and spellbinding stories.

Customise your own monster, make friends with colourful characters and collect over 70 free ebooks courtesy of Usborne, Okido, Otter-Barry and more. The game encourages children of all ages to read for pleasure and is perfect to play at home or school, alongside Teach Your Monster to Read or on its own.

There are hours of reading fun, from following signposts and reading aloud with Goldspear the librarian, to discovering books which help you bake delicious cakes and find treasure.

Promotes the Idea that Reading is Fun and Exciting

This game is such a fun follow up to Teach Your Monster to Read! I have a few students who have become Champion Readers on the first app, so I will move them to this game soon. I love that players can earn books for completing the challenges. Because books are presented as a reward, they are valuable and exciting in students’ minds. And since they can click to have help reading, they won’t just click through. I have tested this app first with a student older than the students I teach and that student loves playing it and prefers it over other games.

This app is just as great as their first, Teach Your Monster to Read! My 4 year old and 7 year old both really enjoyed this app today, and I did as well. We are looking forward to many hours playing on it.

Update: my 4yo and now 8yo absolutely love this app. My 4yo’s reading ability is rapidly improving using this app and Teach Your Monster to Read, and my 8yo could read well but was reluctant to read on her own - now she loves earning books and is happy to read the books she earns, and has begun reading more overall.

Great reading RPG

We’ve been playing this since we got to beta test it. It is so much fun. It’s an RPG (role playing game) that teaches reading. Kiddos don’t even realize it’s teaching them as they play. “Secret homework” as Peter Usborne would say. Increase skills as you read the interaction between players and earn books for completing quests/tasks to help the villagers. And it has a read along for kiddos that need help. Can’t say enough good things.
