I read about the website in the TES a few months ago and have only just got around to trying it with my 4 year old twins. They both loved it and it was hard to stop them at 4 games each!!! Thank you for this well made and motivating resource.
Becky Green (Teacher and Parent)
Thank you for this wonderful site! My students are
really enjoying it! We can't wait for Step Two.
Teri Pope (Teacher)
This is an amazing, beautifully made and entertaining site for young children to learn phonic sounds. Design a monster and take it on an adventure around a magic area to find the letter sounds and fix a spaceship. The storyline is good and the activities are educational and motivational.
Martin Burrett (Teacher and Educational Speaker)
All in all – we loved it and I can really see the potential for this in both mainstream classroom setting and for children with additional needs.
Jenny (Parent and Blogger)
My 5 year old son loved playing this and it was educational (without being too obvious). The graphics and sound were exceptionally good. Children these days are very lucky to have such learning tools. My son says “it is amazing!'"
Sue Press (Parent)
I can't recommend this highly enough, my boys love this! Even the ones that can already read enjoy it.
Samantha Tancock (Parent)
I just introduced my kids to your game today, and my son is already addicted. Which is wonderful because he's having a hard time with reading! Hurray!
This website is truly a gem. I love it and so do my students
Jennifer Jones (Teacher)
This is such a gem you will scarcely believe it is free! If you teach infants or children in the first stages of learning to read, sign them up straight away and watch them have a ball while teaching their monster to read. As well as recognising letters and sounds, the game teaches children to blend and segment. Synthetic phonics in an engaging, fun and progressive game... and completely free!

Teach Your Monster to Read raises the bar for those producing learning games. Even though games have increased in their quality and scope throughout the last few years, teachers have often had to shoe-horn ideas from off the shelf titles.
This game is deeply rich in its design, classic in gameplay, and importantly designed with the learner at the centre.
It offers a brand new approach to educational game development - drawing expertise together from a multidisciplinary team and it shows it the depth of quality in the game. As a primary teacher I was always left with a nagging doubt about one facet of games I was using. If it wasn’t the gameplay, the design and production quality was limited or indeed the learning value was fleeting.
With Teach Your Monster to Read we have a game that breaks that mould and delivers on every level.
