Welcome to our new website and the world of “Teach Your Monster”

You may have noticed that we have a new look!

A new website and a slightly different name

When we launched Teach Your Monster To Read over 8 years ago, we had a mission to improve the literacy of young children with a game that was both super-fun and designed to meet stringent standards by educational experts. 

Now, over 2 million children per month play our games on our website and apps for iOS, Android and Amazon.

It’s been quite a journey! 

And for 8 years, being known as “Teach Your Monster To Read” has suited us just fine.

Along came Reading for Fun and Number Skills

While remaining true to our core mission as a non-profit charitable foundation, we want to make more games across different areas of learning.

Whether those games are focused on literacy, mathematics or other topics, we’ve built a wealth of experience and know-how to allow us to make magical, fun-filled games focusing on other areas of childrens’ education and well-being. 

However, as we’ve launched new games - Teach Your Monster: Reading for Fun and Teach Your Monster: Number Skills - being known as “Teach Your Monster To Read” made less sense. 

So welcome to the world, Teach Your Monster! 

A slightly tweaked brand name and a beautiful new, more modern website that allows us to give you access to all of the games that we’ve made - and will make in the future.

Not much has changed really, we’re still the same people with the same passion for children's education - we just have more than one game for you to enjoy now.

Welcome to our new world!

FAQ

Why is the computer version free?

The game has been funded by the Usborne Foundation, a charity set up to support initiatives to develop early literacy.

Our mission is to help as many children learn to read as possible. The computer version is 100% free and we put profits from the app back into the Usborne Foundation, to continue to create new and exciting ways for children to learn.

The charity was founded by Peter Usborne MBE and his children, Nicola and Martin, one of the world’s leading children’s book publishing companies and Children’s Publisher of the Year 2012. He was previously one of the founders of the magazine Private Eye.

What age is it for?

The game is for children in the first stages of learning to read, or for older children who need a bit more practice. Read more details about the three games.

How do children learn from the game?

The game takes children on a magical journey, meeting colourful characters along the way and collecting fantastic rewards. When children are engaged, they’re motivated to learn.

As they progress, they rehearse a range of essential reading skills; matching letters to sounds, blending, segmenting, tricky words and reading full sentences.
