Teach Your Monster to Read fans love to share their passion for the game in all sorts of ways. We enjoy seeing pictures of your amazing monster creations and it's great to read all about how the monsters inspire children across the globe. Recently we received a beautiful poem written by Judith, from the perspective of her grandson, who loves to play Teach Your Monster to Read...
Most days I have extra fun
Teaching my monster to read
Dodging meteors then when done
I have my monster to feed.
We pop words into his mouth
He chomps them by the score
We journey north, west and south
Until we have some more.
I have trickies to chase and tickle
Until I catch them in my pocket.
Sometimes I get in quite a pickle
When I can’t guide my rocket
Lots of letter planets to explore
Adventures, challenges as we go
A secret gate, a hidden door
Stars to collect, paths to follow.
Passing goblins, spells to read
That part is quite hard
Because if I don’t succeed
My way ahead is barred.
So I try and try my very best
To read the goblin’s spell
I’ve done it ! (though it is a test)
I’m told I’ve done so well.
Soon my monster will love to read
Surrounded by his books
He’s had his words, a tasty feed
He grabs them with his hooks.
So now my monster lives with me
We both love reading together
As I sit upon his knee
Monster friend and I forever.
By Judith from the perspective of her grandson James.
