Our Bafta-nominated game is FREE for teachers on all app stores from 26th February until 4th March 2018.
Helped over 4.5 million children learn to read
Teach Your monster to Read is the immensely popular game that makes learning to read fun. It has now been played over 40 million times worldwide and helped over 4.5 million children learn to read.
The game was developed by The Usborne Foundation, a charity founded by children’s publisher, Peter Usborne MBE, with a mission to help children around the world learn to read.
We believe that every child should be given the opportunity to learn and develop. Giving our phonics and reading app away for free enables teachers and pupils to benefit from using the game in classrooms and at home.
Complements phonics programmes used in schools
The game covers everything from letters and sounds to reading full sentences. There are three levels which between them cover the first two years of the reading journey. Developed in conjunction with leading academics from the University of Roehampton, it is educationally robust and complements all synthetic phonics programmes used in schools.

- Far and away the best reading tool we have found for our kids.
- I was stunned to see how much they enjoyed playing this. It blew me away.
- It’s phonics based approach is pedagogically sound and up to date with the latest thinking on the topic. All education software should be this well thought through.
