It is not the worst but it has to change. sooo I been using this app for 1 year and I LOVE ❤️ it. but it could have some changes but still I LOVE this app soooo much but I still wish it could been better just please😭😭😭 make it better just please😭 because some games on it is NOO fun😭😭😭 so now I kind of hate it sorry i'm soo sorry😭 teach your monster how to read i'm just so sorry I just need to say this actually I was going to write more but I think i'm going to stop writing now and stay safe of this sheltering thing anyways bye

My kids are in love!. This app is “almost” the perfect phonetics game! Loves: -My kids want to play it ALL the time. -It had 3 levels so it adapts to each kids’ ability. -It is fun, interactive, and very educational. -My autistic (almost)4yr old is an early reader but late speaker, his pronunciation is getting better after just a few days. -My 6yr old is now recognizing more blended letters when reading his homework. He was already one of the top readers in his class, he is now blowing me away by home much he is picking up in just a few days of playing. Cons: -The British accent is sometimes hard for my American kids to understand what they are being asked to do. -The volume is not quite right. The main narrator and the music/sound effects are really loud if you want to actually hear the “word speakers”. Example: I the narrator says “to save the bear find the word”, and then someone else says “turn”. The person saying “turn” is so quiet that we have the tablet volume almost all the way up. Then it’s way too loud when the narrator speaks again. -There are a few instances, in different games, where I wish you could touch letters and they would make the phonetic sound again for kids who have a hard time remembering their task. Overall we are absolutely in love with this game and I highly recommend it for anyone who wants a good phonetics game!

Fun and engaging!. Stumbled upon this after ordering some books. My youngest likes the games. I like that they work on blending and there are lots of ways to use it. I had a little trouble signing up and figuring everything out, some stuff could be a bit clearer in terms of user friendly especially with passwords, signing in but the program itself is great and under teacher tab there is quite a few non computer ways to reinforce the concepts learned

Fantastic!. I got this for my 4 year old and 7 year old to play. We were already familiar with Usborne books and enjoyed the educational quality and entertaining style. My 7 year old was already reading close to 2nd grade level so he breezed through the games. He still enjoyed playing even though it wasn't a challenge. My 4 year old had just begun reading CVC words and sounding out letters. Within a couple of weeks her reading had improved dramatically. She ended up completing the first level quickly but wasn't quite ready for the second so started playing on "my" account for extra practice. She has now completed level 2 on both her and my account and is doing well on level 3. (This is after having the app a few months and very sporadic and limited screen time.) It would be nice if there were American pronunciations of a few words but with just the UK pronunciations it gives us a chance to talk about other cultures and regions so that's a different kind of benefit.

Good but not Great. I love the concept but I don’t love that my child can guess her way through the game. I would love to see something put into place that forces her to actually learn the material such as making her redo the level if she makes too many errors. But now she’s at such a high level that I don’t know how to get her back to where she should be without wiping her account and making her start back over at the beginning as she’s past letters and sounds. I’ll probably just stick to better reading programs like Reading Eggs because I know that she can’t guess her way through (she has to repeat if she makes too many errors while just guessing to see what works).

I LOVE IT. This game is so fun that I could not stop playing it like I’ve been playing it for like five weeks and it’s so fun so please guys play it just ask your parents or maybe just you download it just download it yeah it’s super funky you should totally buy it or like just buy it it does not cost real money but just download it it’s like you could learn a lot of stuff you should totally tell your little brother about it this is the best game in the world!

Even a 3 year old can do it!. My 3 year old loves this app! She asks every day to spend time on “Teach Monster”. Once she got past building her space ship, she’s needed my help to read the words and sounds things out, but she’s definitely getting used to it and getting better. I enjoy the time we’re able to spend together on there. My only wish is that we had the option to learn from someone with an American accent, because some of the words and sounds are a bit different and I’m afraid it is confusing her.

Amazing for getting kids started with reading!. This app was the gateway to getting my son reading in preschool! While we waiting for my daughter at gymnastics we would read together or he would play this app if I needed to tend to a few work matters. He learned his letter sounds, how to put letters together, and simple sight words! It was so easy for him to navigate on his own! And I loved that he was learning so much! Thank you for making this fun and accessible for kids!

Fabulous program and app!. I'm an SLP who helps children with reading difficulties. I have recommended this wonderful program to many families. The kids love it! Only thing to be aware of for those in the US is that the program does use British pronunciations for some sounds as the program is from the UK. I love the mini games and the reiteration and repetition for sounds and words used, Fabulous program! Be sure to also check out the website version of the game.

Really helpful for a struggling reader. I’m not generally a fan of app based learning, but have been COVID schooling a kinder student who struggles majorly with the rudiments of reading, like letter sounds and blending. This app has turned reading from a frustrating subject to his favorite subject. He only plays for 10-15 minutes a day, as a supplement to our usual phonics lessons, but he has improved in every area by leaps and bounds, easily reading through simple books that would’ve been a slow, frustrating process to get through before. He is very motivated by earning prizes for his monster, and loves to show me all the monster accessories, letter sounds, and now “trickies” (sight words) he’s collected. The game has just enough intuitive feedback that he can figure it out almost entirely on his own, but not so much that it encourages guessing. My only complaint is that it does not automatically keep the player from progressing to harder material without mastery. As long as the child has done all the activities in level 1, even if he is still struggling and making a lot of errors in some places, the game will still move on to level 2. Overall, a great way to get struggling readers motivated, and build confidence.

Thank you!. This is by far my favorite kids app! No in app purchases of any kind and such high quality development! I love the voice over actor, the fun dress up component and of course that my littles are learning something when they play. The only slight thing I have noticed is the ship/block moving seems to be a bit more difficult than the duck and flower games. Perhaps that could go in a little later. But either way still the best game out there IMO. Thank you so much for this thoughtful game!!!

Too video-game-ish for us. Cute app but it is way too much like a video game for us to feel comfortable having our kids use it everyday. If you get this app I highly suggest previewing it yourself before showing it to your child. I would say it is 70 percent video game and 30 percent literacy. Received a response from the developer which reiterated their commitment to the video game aesthetic... that is fine, I know that sort of approach to learning has been pretty normalized in our society. But my review is for those parents, and yes there are many of us, that don’t want our four year olds getting addicted to video games at a young age. This app is mostly a video game with a little literacy for garnish.

Happy mom. I am a homeschooling momma and my 6 year old daughter is loving this app. She keeps telling me how much fun it is. I have noticed her using the sounds she learns during the game, later during story time and lessons. One concern was the limited practice for each sound but the new added practice material is fantastic. I love the ability to pick any 1-6 sounds she needs to work on. I only have 2 issues: 1. is the level of background noise compared to the sound of the letters. Some are difficult to hear. And turns it into a guessing game. And 2. I wish there was a spot to press for them to repeat the word or sound being asked for. I like to try out the game and noticed the third level has this feature but level 2 does not.

Love it!. I used this in my kinder classroom for two years. I have moved onto a different grade, but should I ever go back to kindergarten I will use this app again. I still recommend it to friends with kinder-age kiddos! The games are fun, I could see the data, and it was an asset for my kids to learn sounds. The British accent did make some sounds a bit harder to hear/understand, but as it was used as one of many tools it didn’t affect the students. Love that they could do sight words too! Plus simple sentences. Overall a fabulous app!

Effective and fun!. When my 4 year old daughter began using this game she loved it and didn't want to put it down. When she started she knew all the letters of her alphabet and many sounds. Within the first two months she was reading simple words (CVC). By the fourth month she was reading simple sentences. By 9 months she had completed finished all three levels of the game and could read proficiently at a 2nd grade level (about 550 lexile). I combined this game with Usborne Books & More's Very First Reading Set, which progresses using the same sounds/words as each part of the game. The only downsides of this game are: as an American some of our pronunciations are different than how they are taught in the game (just a few words, but I enjoy hearing the accents of the narrator and characters), and single sounds/parts of the game cannot be focused on for further practice; the entire level has to be repeated. With my daughter I made up flash cards to practice her sounds and tricky words, but being able to select a letter/letter combination/word to repeat would be a nice feature. Overall, though, I give this game 5 stars for being FUN and very EFFECTIVE. I recommend this to everybody!

Great app. My students love this program and so do I!! I love the way the program builds knowledge through repetition. The new practice feature is great for reviewing sounds a student struggles with. I send the login information home and encourage parents to have their children practice at home, too. I was so excited about the week of free app downloads. My kinders can manipulate the iPad much better than a laptop with a mouse. Thank you for this amazing program!!

Both my kids love this app. My 5 yr old and 7 yr old both love this game. They're at different levels but they have each loved playing this game via our internet browser on the computer and on my iPhone. Game runs great, kids learn a ton and they LoVe it. I recommend it to everybody. The game is set up so well to reinforce principles of pronunciation. My kids love catching "trickies". I wish there was a game like this for every subject. They ask to play it every day and I happily oblige.

Child wanted to play extra time. Just downloaded yesterday but my first grader loved it right away. One glitch for my ESL girl was figuring out how to get the “magnet machine tool”...do not know what it should be called ...to lift the blank sound blocks as visible clues are what she looks for first. Because she has had trouble hearing and recognizing initial letter sounds, the lack of a visual clue made her listen more closely which was good. After frustration about figuring out what action was needed, she happily went on to make progress. She was so excited, she wanted to use the app again today on her lunch break. Today her almost 5 year and sister whined for me to put it in my phone so she could do it also. If early excitement and learning continues, I will be happy. A couple of other apos that I have tried the younger sister on before have yielded a “no, I don’t want that!” response. So it clearly got both over the app avoidance test!

My son loves it!. My son is in kindergarten & is learning to read & has very little interest... but he thoroughly enjoys this game! I love how it focuses on sounds of letters & makes the kids do the work. My 9 year old daughter, who can already read, even loves to play this game! I’m very happy I got this app & it seems to already be helping my stubborn little boy. He’s learning to read without realizing it because he is having so much fun playing the game.

6-yr-old loves it. My granddaughter figured out how the game works faster than I did! She really loved it, and I saw a lot of progress both in beginning reading and in reading 3-digit numbers. She had come to believe, in school, because the curriculum marched on regardless of whether all the kids were getting it, that she couldn’t read. She just didn’t want to try. But playing the game she did pretty well. Not being on paper was part of it I think. Her eyeballs still seem to just bounce off paper text. The sentences in the game get progressively longer, while the words are still about the same. As the sentences lengthened, the time she spent with it shortened. It would be nice to be able to choose levels, with variety, so that the learner could have some say in the challenge. The game definitely has resulted in important progress.

Awesome app!. My oldest is in kindergarten and has thoroughly enjoyed learning in this app! His teacher got her class signed up for this and it has been great for him to do independently while we watch his brother’s swim lesson. His 4 year old brother is typically pretty difficult to get motivated so it can be frustrating to try and work with him, even when trying to play a game. So since we had such good success with one kiddo, I thought we’d see how the other did. Wow!! He’s done great! He enjoys playing, he’s learning new sounds and the letters that make them. I’ve got something to help him learn while his brother is doing his schoolwork!

Best app ever 💚💚💚💚. I used to play this game when I was five years old and now I’m eight and still play it!!! This is the best game ever I have no complaints and love this app sooo much. I’m sure kids around the world like it too. I am so going to teach my almost three year old sister this awesome game. The British accent is not a problem at all because I already taught her the alphabet and she can pronounce them correctly. For other people who have complained about the British accent I have something to say: do your kids know the alphabet? If not, TEACH them!! Try to solve the problem. So this game was awesome !!!!!!! So yeah keep it up!!😃😃

Both my kids love it. We’ve done a few reading apps and none have captivated my kids like TYMTR! My kids are 6 and 4 and I have them on the first and last pathways, which have both worked out perfectly for their current skills. For some reason they absolutely love playing...I think because the video game element is just as challenging as the reading. I’m very thankful to have found this app as we head into summer break.

Great for school and home!. I am special education teacher and mother. My kids at home school love this app. It’s fun, academic and truly free. The game is centered on each child’s needs and does not progress until they have mastered a skill. Even when they’re slow to master a skill game doesn’t get boring or less challenging he continues to push the child in different ways the kids get prizes to decorate their monster for finishing challenges in the game. This game is not just for the lower level kids but for upper level elementary too. My daughter is in third fourth and fifth enjoy it for the reading comprehension and center structure. It has a great little Cavaleri and reinforces what your teachers are teaching. It’s colorful bright and I have yet to have any bug issues with his app. I use it on the computer on my whiteboard and also on my Apple products

Letter sounds. My four year old son loves this app and before using it he didn't know many letter sounds. After just a couple times of use he is already reading simple words! My only complaint is when you are racing down the track and jumping to touch the flowers to make the letter sounds, it's very difficult to time getting to the top ramp. If the letter sound points to the top it takes my son several tries to get up there even though he knows that's where he needs to go. Fun little app overall and I've seen significant learning since he's been using it.

5 year old loves it. My 5 year old loves designing her monster. Actually, she’s obsessed! She’s a bit addicted to playing so she can gather more stars to dress her monster up. She plays the game as if she’s secretly gotten away with doing something. I feel like in the 2 days she’s played, she’s learned lore about phonics and letter recognition than a whole year of being in school. I absolutely recommend this game for preschoolers and kindergarteners. Side note, for those in the US, as other reviews have mentioned, some, maybe just a few, of the phonics are different sounding. When she comes across those, I let her know how different countries/places pronounce things differently and I try to help her find the correct letter and move on. Gives me a chance to review it with her.

Son made amazing strides in a short time. My son started playing this game the summer before he began kindergarten, about 15-20 minutes a day. At that time he could identify all of his letters but had no practice with sounding out words. I am AMAZED how fast this game helped him learn to read. At his first parent-teacher conference, his teacher estimated he was reading at a 2nd or 3rd grade level, after only a few months of playing the game. My only criticism would be that since we are American, it was odd to hear him read in an English accent sometimes, so I felt the need to play with him at first to make sure he knew some of the differences in how we pronounce words. He rarely plays anymore but now he can read nearly all the books on his bookshelf.

You can make 7 monsters!. I would love to make a better amount of monsters but this is the amount this cool app has. Just 7. But the cool thing is that I have the app at school. That app is trembling cool. The trampoline thing is a little rapid. And you can learn to spell,read,and make you smart. (Learning games make you smarter to think quickly and raising your hand when a teacher ask’s a question.) In my opinion your game is a amazing app for truggling readers and the editing monster makes it very fun to play.

Wonderful learning game. I homeschooled my daughter for awhile, and she loved this app. Now a few months later, we are dealing with school closures from COVID and when I come to re-download it, I see you are offering the app for free because of the school disruptions. I cannot thank you enough on behalf of all the parents and children who will benefit from having access to such a fun and useful app during these trying times. Absolutely heartwarming, thank you SO much.

Keeps her excited!. From my Facebook share of the app - Preschool parent friends - Our #1 goal this summer is to learn to read before Kindergarten starts. This app is $4.99 but SO fun, my 5 year old loves it. It is divided into 3 sections of learning to read - sounds, site words, and sentences all with super fun games. I especially like that her answer only has to be near where it has to go instead of EXACTLY on the squares. The app is made by Usbourne Books, which is a trusted book company that we loved before I found this and now Love even more! I get nothing for telling you this, I was just incredibly impressed plain and simple And I think THATS worth sharing!

Wonderful, amazing, great! Buy it!. My son (whom just turned 5) has a Kindle Fire with FreeTime Unlimited and he found this game there. For days he was playing it and telling everyone how it was his new favorite game. I watched him play it and was shocked at the level of education it provided as, sadly, educational games rarely hold my son’s interest. I’m currently setting up an old iPad Mini 2 to swap him away from the Kindle and when I saw this game, there wasn’t any questions, I immediately downloaded it! I highly, highly recommend you add this game to add to you child’s learning library.

Homeschool Mom Thrilled with App, but.... We have been using this app for a couple of weeks and we love it. My daughter struggles with reading, and her progress with TYMtR has been incredible. She enjoys all the games and is motivated to play. My only complaint is that the “Stat” feature is not working for her profile. On my account I made two student profiles one called “Mom” so I could test the app out to see if it was worth letting my daughter try it, and one in my daughter’s name. I have no problems accessing the Stats for the “Mom” profile, but for about a week, I have not been able to access my daughter’s stats. I would like to be able to use those stats to help her work on problem areas and to determine if she is progressing too fast through the levels. I emailed tech support, but was told that it may be a server issue with the influx of users and to try at different times of day, but no matter the day or time, the Stats are not available for my daughter’s profile but work fine on the other profile. Fixing this issue would make this app a solid 5 star review.

Not for everyone. I liked this app originally but I wish the audio was in standard American English. The characters speak a sort of British/Australian English where I cannot hear the R sound. My child is learning “Noth” instead of “North” and “Huh” instead of “her” and so on. It makes it difficult for my budding reader to do a lesson when words he can usually understand he now cannot and I don’t really want him to pick up speaking with this style of pronunciation as we don’t speak that way here. In combination with the fact that after my child completed the letter sounds the lessons went right into expecting him to fully read sentences (fun with words). I expected a bit more of an explanation to the child or to be guided into blending sounds but you truly are expected to read a sentence and complete the action, after only learning letter sounds. Unfortunately we may no longer use this app

Absolutely worth it.. This is PERFECT for my kindergartener! She’s been having difficulty in school with certain sounds/letters and this has helped tremendously and it’s only been a week. It’s fun, colorful, interactive. She makes the sounds when told and it holds her (very spacey and hyper) attention. I don’t know if it’s because she isn’t allowed tablets/phones but she hasn’t moved or gotten distracted in over an hour, I’d like to credit that to the app. I plan on recommending this to everyone, I wish I could give more than 5 stars.

Fun interactive. My 5 year old enjoys using Teach my monster to read. It keeps him engaged and sounding out letters. Which for a parent that is a plus. He stays engaged enough to keep learning and not be frustrated with it if it becomes to hard. He is able to navigated easily with some parent guidance. The only concern is the login is a three step process. Which I often have to remember the 3 part of the password. That is the only part that makes it not as user friendly. I use this both as a teacher and parent.

Older sister APPROVED. Last night I found this, my little brother just started kindergarten, and we homeschool. We set everything up fairly quickly and he learned the 'N' sound! I read a review that said it had incorrect phonics. Well, you learn the letter sounds, and sort stuff depending upon the sound. Not incorrect phonics. Also, my brother regularly comes up to me and asks to play! I played a little of it, and it's pretty fun! I already know all the stuff, but I will sum it up in two words! Educational FUN! That is hard to find. I got it for free, in Febuary. That's it! Thank you for reading! This was a review from ❤️Km❤️!

Fun learning with some flaws. The speakers on the app have an English (UK) accent. We are American. This make understanding the new letter sound combinations difficult for a new reader, especially those ending in r (as we tend to pronounce the ending r sound when those from England do not). My son loves the games and learning new words, but I don’t feel that he is fully grasping new information before the game allows him to progress. There is one section where he has to read a full sentence and follow the instructions. I have to read those for him because he only knows about half the words.

British Accent used. My son loves the app and has fun as its competitive and very much like any other game app where their player is on a path that needs to jump and make it to the end. The catch is that if they want to correctly finish, they must match the sound to the letter(s). The problem comes about when you’re needing to teach your child according to what they normally hear. Americans say arr for R but the game has an accent and says “ah” which also sounds like “au” or even the soft “a”. Furthermore, for iPad mini 3, the app doesn’t work well with the speakers. You can hardly hear the instructions by the narrator but you’ll hear a strong voice saying the letters needing matched. Many times they’ll be on top of each other and children can’t understand. If you’re in America or Canada, this app may not be the best.

Amazingly good. My daughter loves this. Its incredible how well this teaches phonetic (and sight) reading. It definitely requires parental guidance though; do not send kids off to play this by themselves. This program builds up new skills and sight words FAST, often using sight words that the student hasn’t seen as the answer (it’s a good thing; students figure them out by process of elimination and are never shown two new words at once and are required to recall or sound out multiple previously seen words ). By comparison, ABCmouse seems galacially paced. Most kids will do better if an adult is there to help them walk through the words when they forget a skill or get confused.

This help my brother. Soo what I was little I alway love this game the my brother the first flayd this game he love it but one time he acendently delisted his ceroter and he is rely sad but this app did not have a update which is sad because I rely what the app to be fo every grade but this app I the best app and now my brother love this game but sad about the deleted part app I also wish that some day this app could be the best app in the world🤩

I’m 15 and I learned a lot. Wow. That is the word I would use to describe this amazing game. I have played a lot of different games over my past years of living (My job is living so I do it quite a bit). The clothing outfits are fascinating. I love how you can dress up as whatever you want! The progression behind the game is great as well. The more activities you complete, the faster you can build your spaceship to get home. The plot is a little shaky though. You crash land on this planet and your ship explodes, yet you come out with no injuries what so ever. I think if the game showed a little blood and showed the children how to bandage and clean a wound, that would be a great survival skill to learn. You never know when your spaceship will crash land and you’ll be stuck on a planet with kings that have you learn letters to rebuild your ship. Overall, this game is a pretty good game but it could be better.

Great app, needs a few tweaks. My 4 year old loves this app! She has learned a lot of letters and sounds and especially loves customizing the monster. A few issues I have had with the app: - The sounds all have English accents, which generally isn’t a problem but is really confusing on “o” and “r”. - The games have no tutorial, so the fast games start, give a quick instruction, and take off without giving the child time to figure it out. My daughter still hasn’t figured out the flower or balloon games because they’re just too fast and have very little explanation. - My main issue is that in the main game, there’s no way to “pause” and pick up later. On an island, if you close the app, it skips ahead to the next letter and there’s no way to go back. I wish there was the option to continue or stop between each island. We do an island every day and when we stop it skips ahead to the first letter of the next one when we reload the next day, so she misses the beginning and first letter sound of the next island, which is frustrating. Otherwise this is a great app; lots of fun and really helps my daughter. She begs to do the monster game every day.

Honestly not that bad. I’m going to be perfectly honest here, this game has fun mini games and no bugs at all from my experience, but the one issue I have with it is that it doesn’t really help children once they learn to read. Once they can read, it just becomes kind of useless for the child. In my experience, it was a fun game overall that did what it was supposed to do quite well! To anyone who’s reading this and looking for an app to help your child learn to read, this might be your best bet.

Incredible value. My son sort of liked this game when he was 3, but now that he is 4 he has figured out all the mini games and will happily play for a length of time! The phonetic based learning is quite effective and I appreciate it is not a subscription based model (which I would have given up with if he had used it as infrequently as when he was 3)

Excellent. This has hands down been one of our best apps. My son is 4 and on the 3rd level/game. There are a few items I think could be tweaked....the running game....my son was too young to time jumps when it came along. You can just wait and eventually you will win. >< There are constant updates and added content. The only thing I would like to see added is writing. A moveable alphabet to practice and writing with a stylus or finger. One comment on level 3, I notice my kid guessing a lot. He knows what parts he can “cheat”. He’s a little too smart. If you let kids progress when guessing the point won’t hit home. I know practice exists but I would love if he could see his scores on phonemes and go back to practice. This would also be great insight for our teacher. He is in a US Montessori school.

Great app— needs to acknowledge girl audience. My kids love this game and play it first whenever they earn screen-time. However, my 5 y/o daughter has gotten increasingly frustrated with the choices of prizes for the monster. She wants her monster to be a girl— like her. However, the majority of clothing is masculine (neck ties, top hats, etc). Of course I have sold my bill of goods regarding gendered clothing; however, there are NO clothes that are typically gendered female. Clearly, the app makers have done their research regarding methods of pedagogy. They also need to do research regarding the importance of children seeing themselves in learning, and step into 2018. This could be a really easy fix.

Me and my little sister are addicted. Me and my little sister have so much fun learning and this is good for her because she is in preschool and she is a level one but we are going to work on that so yeah but I also love this game because I tried getting more games like this but they all cost money and this is the only one I love because I played it and I am the oldest out of all my siblings and I still play it so everyone should download this app

So worth it!. This is a wonderful game for my 4 year old. It plays just like any journey style game (Mario-esque) and makes the objectives learning based. For example: all the ducks have escaped! Herd them back to the pond that makes the “Sh” sound. So your child would easily make their monster gather the ducks and put them in the right pond. It’s much easier on a phone or tablet than the computer for us. Using a mouse is still a learning process but it can be great if your child is good with one. Definitely recommend this app!

Great Game!. No, I am not a parent writing this, but an actual user of this game, and yes I’m old- when I was young my parents got me this app and wow, is it so fun! I might know how to read, and a bunch of other stuff that some four year-olds would not understand, but this game is always fun! There’s just so many things to do! Yeah, there might be video games, or just girly teenage games, but for some reason I just love this, I don’t find it cringe or whatever for me to play it, just seems a bit weird to myself even, but I would recommend these for ages 4-6 not 12-14 haha, but anyways, thanks for reading this! <3

Thanks for teaching my “monster” how to read! Lol!. My 5 year old son has been very stubborn about not wanting to read. Then one day he decided he wanted to learn how to write his own video games. My husband, the programmer, broke the news that he has to be able to read first. This started several days of him angrily trying to sound words out he wouldn’t quit, but he hated every minute of it. So, I splurged on the game. Next thing I know, our little “monster” has blazed through the entire first section and is spelling and reading words with blends! Thank you for making phonics fun for him!!

Not compatible with PC application. This game is great on PC. Very disapointing on Ipad as you can't use the account you created on a PC or create additional account on the ipad to save progress of more than one child. The IPAD app is only useful if you have only one child using the same ipad all the time so this way it can save the progress of your child.

Great app for schools and teachers. My class love using this app to help them learn to read. It's so engaging!

Awesome App. This is an awesome game for kids to learn how to read. My daughter uses Reading Eggs for school, but finds this more fun and it encourages her to read by making her read what she has to do, for example, go to the monster with a hat. Even my 3 year old is learning a lot from this; it’s great for different levels of reading ability.

App does not work. I just bought this app for iPad. It does not work. It asks for user name & password, but does not allow to create account. Really disappointed.

Favourite App for learning sounds and improving early word/ sound recognition. Love it. Worth every cent! My daughter asks to play daily. Well done. Great benefits!!

Best app for littles ones!. My 4year old is starting to recognise alphabets and sounds already through the app and its been a great revision for my 6 year old they dont get bored from it either! Thank you!

Kids really enjoyed this but finished too quickly and only 1 player option on iPad. All my kids really enjoyed this miss 4 is still enjoying the levels, mr 8 finished it within the day, and mr 10 really wants to get it in a level that would challenge him, he says the adventures look pretty cool, better than any other one he's seen! BUT... There needs to be an option to fast forward to higher levels on the PC version, and I can't find the next levels on IPad yet? Are they going to be available soon? Eager to try it out on the bigger kids

I think this game is great but I would like a update please. Thank you

Ethan. It is great a great app

Aisling. I love it so far

Kids loved it, but can not add another monster or restart. Both of my children love the game! It is fun and simple way of learning letters :) They were really disappointed that they could not add more monsters either to have more than one player listed or to repeat the tasks once they had finished the game (without loosing their first monster).

class love game. this is a faboules game to play whith little children to learn

Even 2yr old wants in on the action. Bought this for my son, to help him put his phonics together to make words, has helped immensely and he's way out ahead in his reading now. My daughter only 2, plays it now because it looks so wonderful, she's progressing a lot slower and is really way above her ability but she's determined to do it too.

My monsters love their monsters. My children have access to more than one app to help them read, but even though two of them are well beyond needing basic reading skills, they love to look after their monsters and help them read. This app is engaging and encouraging. You couldn’t ask for much more.

Better than reading eggs. Evidence based approach to teaching reading according to science. Engaging.

It works!. My daughter loves this app

Fun little App. Great little app for starting kids off with their reading journey. It helps my son (5) with sounding out letters.

Not happy. I paid and can’t download the app , couldn’t get any help

This is amazing. This is entertaining for kids and even schools have this game it’s really fun and you get up to levels and the mini games are super fun try it for yourself 😊

Works perfectly for little readers. Both my 4 & 6 year olds love this app. It has helped reinforce school taught reading techniques for my eldest, and provided an entry point for my youngest, who after a few months of having this app is now reading introductory reading books borrowed from a primary school. More importantly then this however, is the fact they both love reading and this app has played a part in fostering that.

Buggy on recent devices and i/iPadOS. Frequently does not display words in cookies, instead your just see the blank section where the word should be. Similarly, on stepping stone games, often the letters are replaced by ‘.’ , a full stop or period instead. Frustrating for kids and adults because then it just becomes and random guessing game until you pick the right combinations.

Great for the kids!!. Love how easy it is to use and my girls love learning using this and enjoy each milestone and the rewards that come with it! Great for all stages of early learning !

Class teachers love it.. I am the computer teacher at a school and have introduced this game to students from Kindergarten to reluctant year 4 readers. I have used both the app and the website. The students love it and the teachers love the results.

Waste of money. I think this app is a scam

This app taught my 3yr daughter to read. At 22 months of age, our daughter knew the alpha bet, by chance I stumbled upon this app and a few others. All education apps have a main pathway, but they also have other distractions which deter children from the original path of the game, like mini games and buying accessories for a virtual home. This app does not have these distractions which allow our toddler daughter to remain on the main path. Our daughter is nearly 3 1/2 and her reading skill is that of a 5 1/2 year old. I give a lot of credit to ‘Teach monster’ mainly due to the lack of distractions! Simple is more ! Thanks guys, and well done.

Great for Home Educators too!. As a home educator I am always on the look out for engaging and fun ways to learn, especially the more repetitive things such as reading and phonics etc. So thank you so much for this app, my 6yo son loves it. Some of the things we like most: - it keeps changing the games as he goes further, keeping it fresh and engaging - it gives plenty of support and doesn’t ‘penalise’ for wrong guesses, some games do this and it discourages kids from having a go, which really is how we learn! - gives plenty of verbal support which helps kids be more independent and confident in having a go and feeling a sense of achievement Thank you!

Teach Your Monster to Read. We are using it as part of our Educational apps to reinforce what we are teaching. The kids love it and we can set them up at the right level. Great for EAL students as well to help them with their letter sounds.

It’s greatest educational game in world. It great make a free version like a demo version

Best ABC app. I can't rate this app highly enough, it has been so great for teaching my son letters and and sounds.

Proxy Issue. Fantastic app HOWEVER downloaded on all our school iPads but it won’t let the kids log in due to proxy issue. App won’t allow auto proxy yet we (like most schools using an MDM) must use auto proxy settings due to our caching server. This is poor programming on the developer’s part and the only app we have ever had this issue with. Please update the app to allow auto proxy!!!

Well worth it. This is a fantastic app, one of the best I've found for helping my pre-schoolers - and even preps - understand and learn phonics.

Glitches in code but great idea. Please fix the games. This morning the game was saying ‘ch’ for all sounds in make this word instead of ‘ch’ + ‘sh’ + ‘th’ And instead of ‘th’ was saying ‘ng’ I tried logging in to report and ask for help but “email address not found” although my daughter has been using this app for a few months now.

Great educational game. Amazing! My son (5) was playing it since I downloaded it and already learned more then in 2 months at school. He wouldn’t play reading eggs but he loves Teach Monster. It’s so well made with rewards and possibility to buy gifts when he earned stars. I wish the developer will do something similars for numbers in the future ?

Engaging and Confidence Building Brilliant. A wonderful education resource that can be played over multiple devices and technology. The games are engaging and well structured, supporting not only the beginner reader but also those who may require consolidation and review of skills. Bravo for providing such a great reading program.

Not very intuitive. Tap the blocks to build the spaceship: I had no idea how to solve that second level. It would be much better to have the audio of the letters on loop. It issues a frustrating long time to try to figure how to progress instead of designing the app for a young child to have greater exposure to phonetics.

Scammers. I paid money for the app but it didn’t work. So I have decided to sue your dumb company.

Teach monster. I like it but it is a little bit babyish

We lost all progress. We had logged in on the app. Son was loving it, but lost all the progress with no way to recover. He now says what’s the point. Don’t both the help on the webpage is useless and it’s hard to follow linking better the app and webpage, bad design.

So far so good, it has the kids hooked. My 4 & 6 year olds give this app the tick of approval. They are very engaged and enjoy how interactive it is.

We love it!. Our 2 young readers LOVE this program! It is fun, engaging and packed with educational content. Thank you for continuing to expand the Teach Your Monster To Read program to include more advanced readers! Your new additions have lined up perfectly with our oldest reader. Thank you!

Hi. My brother JACOB Jackson loves this app ❤️💜💞💝🧡🖤💓💛💔💗💚❣️💖💙💕💘

Great. This game is great! You have to get it.

Solid app to support learning to read!. Love this app as a support my students learning to read. It’s evidence-based and lots of fun for kids. It’s a huge plus that I can track where everyone is at using the teacher dashboard. Makes differentiating and assessment even easier. Thanks Teach Your Monster!

SO AWESOME. So I played it and it was great ty for making this

Intros to each game are too long. The intros to each game are so long my kids loose interest before the game has even begun. When the game begins its slow and boring. Confused about all the good reviews.

Hi. Good game

You cannot put an account. When we tried to type info in the account we cannot type anything and will just freeze if we use strategies to fix it

Love this game!!!!!!!. This game is child friendly, fun, and even way better then any of the games out there!!!!! This is my 3rd fav route game.

Amazing. This app has taught my daughter how to read. She was struggling until she started playing this game. Highly recommend

Sound not working. My kids love this game, but sometimes the sound stops working when they need to hear a word to spell or the letter sounds

Terrific reading game!. I played this game as a child and I was ahead of all the other children in reading at school, Me and all my siblings used this and it gives me great nostalgia, get this for your children it’s works absolutely perfect!

Great Program for Kids!. My students are really enjoying this program! They like the idea of having a monster. The program is straight forward with levels that are helping them to develop their reading skills.

Thx you show my kid how to read. Thank you I am not sad that I bought this game because it works thx dude

Fun and interactive. My son who is 4 years old now loves playing with the app, now he can play most of the games that comes up. sometimes need a bit of guidance but once taught he is able to grasp it. The games are repetitive but with different content. He started playing this app when he was 3.5 years old. He enjoys it and loves it a lot. Totally recommended if you want to get an educational app for your kids.

Kids Love It!. Very user friendly and educational. Great content and helps “monsters” read while having fun!

Not working want my money back. This app refuses to load on my iPhone 11 - please refund my money as I don’t usually pay for kids apps and this is truly disappointing.

Best app. My kids love it, learn and play

Great App. I found starting an account to be a challenge. But once I got passed that part it was amazing. 3 kids using it at once, some on PCs and some on iPads. They all enjoyed the game - I am so happy to have help teaching the kids how to read.

Great APP. My two son’s love this app! It help give them skills they need, also confidence with their new skills and abilities.

Great!. Great app for teaching letter recognition and sounds as well as putting them together and beginning to read. My kids really enjoyed playing this game.

Good app for reading basics. My 5 year old daughter seems to enjoy this app quite a bit. She has played it for the past few weeks and doesn’t seem bored of it yet which is great, kids seem to lose attention so quickly. I have recommended this to many people and will continue to.

Login is always an issue. See title

Perfect app. This app is flawless. It keeps my daughter's attention and keeps her learning. I wish they offered this in other languages as well such as French and Japanese!

Good app - wish there was more variation. Good app for my 4 and 7 year old. Focused more towards boys than girls. My 4 year old step son wishes there were more games - it is getting a little boring for him.

Excellent app. My FASD daughter absolutely adores this app and has made great leaps in her reading skills playing this app, but it progresses a little too fast for her, so after reaching a few levels she lost interest. Is there a way you can slow down the introduction of new concepts? She’s also getting confused with the British accent. Will you be adding an option for a Canadian accent? Thanks again, for making such a fantastic app available to promote literacy.

Nostalgiaaaaa. I only play this cuz I played it in grade one lol

Kids love it!. The kids and I love this app! They learned so much from it and progressed so quickly. They absolutely enjoy playing it and I enjoy seeing them learning. Thanks!

I would like my money back. I would rate this a zero. Couldn’t open up the game. I would like my money back

Great app!. My daughter (3.5 yrs) LOVES IT!

Great resource. Homeschooling mom- use this as a supplement for all my kids!

Highly recommend!. It’s an educational app that I like AND my kids enjoy playing so that’s awesome! One downside is that, for us, the narration has an accent so some of the phonemes do not sound proper, which is annoying given that its an app that teaches phonetic awareness/reading. Luckily it’s a consistent difference and the game is easy enough to navigate, so it can be easy to overcome that challenge.

Can’t Go Wrong!. We love this app! My son started it at about 2 years old for support with letters and sounds. He will be 3 soon and can recognize a few sight words. It’s all because of this app! It’s fun, educational AND he gets his tablet? That is a big win at our house!

One of the best!. This app is one of the best out there to teach your children to read. It is fun, interactive and the animations and story telling are awesome. Thanks!

User-friendly effective learning tool. Love this app! My grade 1 students progressed so well with their reading, using the web version at school, and many chose to purchase the app to continue at home. They returned to the games again and again. Thank you.

The best game. When I first played the game it was AWESOME

Classroom. I use this once a week in the classroom and my students love it. It keeps their attention for a long time unlike other early reading and learning to read activities.

App is good depending on how the developer responds?. My son loves this app and it's hard to get it away from him. However, as he was playing he stopped to use the washroom and came back and found that all his stars had disappeared. He is on level 3 and had over 1000 stars as he was saving up to buy stuff from the store. Only to come back and find 94 stars and all 31 'Trixies' gone. Is there anything that can be done to fix this. Could it be a glitch in the app? Please advise at your earliest convenience.

Terrific phonetic sounds. The progression from letter recognition to sound recognition and then sequence to produce words is so smooth and natural. Well designed to create enthusiasm and reinforce learning.

Kids love it. The kids love this app! The 2 yr old caught on pretty quickly to listening for the right sounds and matching the letter. 4 yr old is half way through the first stage!

Amazing. My kids love these apps. They are so much fun and help them with their literacy skills.

Great app!. My children are really enjoying this app! It was recommended by their teacher and I see the value in it. Thanks!

Volume issue. The volume just turns off on the game sometimes. I actually have to turn off my phone to get the volume working on the game again. It may be just my phone but I don’t change any setting on my phone and it doesn’t do this for other applications.

A Learning Ap the Kids Ask to Play. My kids love earning stars and playing their monster game. From 2 to age 9 they all enjoy it. It’s a fun and educational game.

Amazing. My boy is six and has been struggling to read. This game is absolutely brilliant and he is now reading!!!

I like the app but. This app needs a bit more direction. The kids are allowed to bypass many parts of each lesson without the practice neededso when they get to the reading part of the lesson, it tends to fall apart because they get too frustrated. They shouldn’t be allowed to continue until all work on each level has been completed. I would also like to suggest some kind of internal timer so that the app can gauge when a child is ready to move up to the next level. If it’s taking your child 5 minutes to read one small sentence, they’re not ready to go on to the next level. The kids love it though but now it’s too hard for their level and they’ve gotten frustrated. Maybe it’s just me and I haven’t sat down to learn everything the app has to offer. I might be missing something but this is what I’ve seen so far.

The best reading program. We tried so many different games, apps, interactive books etc etc to teach our kids to read. I knew it would eventually just click but it was taking awhile for my son. Teach my monster was finally what made it click for both of my kids. My son is 2 years older so he had tried everything under the son by the time we tried this app. My daughter didn’t have as much exposure to reading but they were both at the same level after teach your monster. It works! And it’s fun! They didn’t fight me when I said it was time to play which is the first hurdle. Highly recommend!!

It’s fantastic been using with my students.. Love it!

Help with app. I accidentally bought the app in my apple store but should of bought it on my daughters tablet instead because it’s Samsung and I’d have to buy it twice. Is it possible to get a refund for the purchase on my iPhone so I can’t buy it on her tablet? I sent an email as well. Thank you, she loved the little bit she played on my phone. :)

My kid read is so helpful. My kid is so much beter he nose beter then he’s teacher

Perfect for our preschool son!. During the quarantine... our preschooler is missing his end of the year letters and sounds. So thankful for this fun tool he is enjoying to wake up with and asks to be able to play with the monster. He is very much a math/stem kid, so letters and reading have been a challenge. So thankful for this fun tool! We are about start the First reading library and am excited to use alongside this!

A great app that taught my son to read. My son was in Pre-K and we wanted a fun app that would get him ready for school. Tried a bunch of the others including ABC Mouse and he gave up on them easily. He loved this one. Both him and his brother challenged each other to get stars and build the spaceships. After one year he is reading “Level 2” books on his own as he heads into Kindergarten and a huge part of that is due to this app.

Very effective and fun!. I have 4 yr old boy/girl twins and they both love using the app and playing the games. They're both making progress with reading much more quickly than they had been and it holds their interest. They’ve been very proud of themselves and have also had so much fun while they learn!

Wonderful Educational Reading App!!!. This is an excellent app for learning letters and sounds as well as readers!!! I have been recommending it to everyone who has a PreK child through 2nd grade (possibly even 3rd). My personal 5 year old loves it and is really beginning to start tapping out words and hear sounds in words. He starts kindergarten next year. Thank you for this app!!!

Dyslexic Reader. My 8 year old is dyslexic and was struggling to read BIG time! I saw teach my monster to read on a FB post and thought why not we have tried everything else..this program has helped her TREMENDOUSLY!! She has improved her reading so much just with doing it for a week! She also enjoys doing it because it’s so fun so it’s not a chore to get her to do it! We love this program!

Suggestion for app to make it better. This is a great tool for learning to read. My six year old son loves the games. I just have one suggestion for the developers. Is there a way to go back and review ‘trickies’ that my son gets stuck on. I use the ‘trickies’ list to review words, it would be great if there is a way to go from the trickies list to going to the excercises/games that teaches the sound associated with the ‘trickies’. Please add the vowel combination ‘OI’

Great app 😜😜😜. This a wonderful app !!!I remember playing it when I was little and I loved and then I downloaded it for my little sister and she loved it. She had so much fun playing it and loved the missions we’re fun and interesting and making her monster

Not enough help with words. App goes really fast from letters immediately to constructing words. Seems unreasonably fast. For example, my kid was practicing “ng” sounds and the next game was spelling the word “fang” without any practice behind spelling whole words. I would not recommend. It’s good for sounding letters and combinations of letters but doesn’t do a good enough job transitioning to whole words. Another example is we finished the beginning and then the next stage asked us to read a sentence to find the next steps. We haven’t even begun to learn words and now they want my kid to read whole sentences?

Very hard to use the app.. This is the first app I have given one star too. It is very hard to use. I downloaded it last night for my granddaughter to use. It is very hard to maneuver. I couldn’t do it even helping her. It asks you to keep putting ducks in a pond. It took forever to get the darn things in there because the wouldn’t move easily and then it repeated itself and wanted us to do it again. She was not impressed and now doesn’t want to play it anymore. This was not a cheap app so I feel like I am out five bucks. I would not recommend. She has no issues with other apps.

Love!!. My kids love this!! My daughter did this as a game in her downtime when she was 5. Now my little guy who is pre K and super hard to get to focus on anything loves it. This is saving me during our days stuck in the house while I’m trying to work from home. I feel good about him getting a jump on school.

Absolutely wonderful!. I use both the online and app versions with my first graders. It is the hands down favorite. Even if we have recently played in the lab, the children will choose this app on the iPad. Many also choose to play at home. I think it does a great job of helping children learn to read!

Great supplement!. I teach young students and they all love when they get to play “Teach Monster” at school. When they play, they tell me what they are learning in the game and how it connects to what we have learned in class. I also love that they can play at school and at home and it keeps up with their progress.

Sanity Saving!. My 7 year old LOVES to learn and interactive reading is something that he enjoys very much. This app has been a sanity saver for us!! He wakes up every morning since downloading, goes potty, and gets on Teach My Monster. It’s very engaging and gives me peace of mind knowing he’s putting the safest, best info into his brain from the time he wakes up til the time he goes to sleep. Thank you so much for offering this app during such an uncertain time!!

Amazing game. This game has really helped my 4-year old son. He has trouble focusing on practice activities that I have done with him, but the game is fun (and funny) to him and he plays it all on his own. I truly believe that it has taught him a lot about sounds and starting words. And it doesn’t hurt that it’s by a company that we’ve bought fantastic books from!

Amazing 🤩. This is just great. I was looking on the App Store when I found this, it reminded me when I was four or five and played this. I decided to try it again because I wanted to feel how I felt again and it amazed me! It’s so fun and informative at the same time. If I ever have a child I will show them this app

Classroom use. I’m a library media specialist in a Title I school. I’ve been using the online version with my classes, after using the app with my own child for years. They LOVE it! It’s magnificent for our struggling readers and our most fluent readers love seeing how far they can get with the fun games. Two teacher thumbs up!

My kids love this buuut.... My kids love to play this game, but I noticed that they are easily able to “cheat” and will keep on advancing beyond their abilities. From what I’ve noticed, the game allows players to answer multiple times until they give the right answer.. letting the into the next level when they haven’t mastered current level.

Homeschool Mom of 5. We have been using the website but decided to give the app a try. We love it. My 1st grader has some difficulty using the computer mouse at times. Using the app, he is able to play with out getting so frustrated about the computer mouse.

It’s really fun.....really!. My son ( in first grade ) is used to playing roblox and Minecraft so I was a little hesitant about how fun it would be. But my son has told me multiple times that he really like the “new game” I downloaded for him, he says it really fun and likes the challenges. It really is fun and they are learning he’s also willing to do the flash cards and drills, I highly recommend your little reader will love it

Fantastic!. Teach your monster to read is a great, fun way to enhance your child's journey to reading! Kids are very engaged as they work from practicing single sounds to building words and then sentences. I use it with my kindergarten class - it allows kids to work at their own pace and repeat practice as much as possible 😄👍🏻👍🏻

Nice app. My 4 year old likes this app. It’s in a video game format which helps him enjoy it more. They have little mini games inside the app, so if he doesn’t like one of them he can pick a different one. If you don’t like the video game format, this isn’t for you. (Duolingo ABC is a good one)

I love it!. This website/app is great! My students LOVE to play and beg for “game time” every day. Since starting this program I have seen so much growth in my students. I have even starting using it with my 4 year old niece! I could not recommend this more! (Note: there are some pronunciation differences since this a British software but it’s still wonderful!)

I don’t get it. I’m so confused by the spaceship game. How does it teach letters? The flower pedal game at least makes sense, though I can’t say it’s a good way to introduce a letter to a 3 yo beginner. The approach taken by Endless Reader on level 1 makes more sense for beginners. I regret paying for this app. This game is also a nightmare in a noisy environment like an airplane when you can’t hear all the instructions. There are no visual instructions at all for parents to help when my child is wearing headphones.

Pre-k and K kids LOVE it!. My kids cannot our this game down once they start playing. There was no instruction for the space game where the UFO has to pile the block in the correct order, so my kids didn’t understand how to play that game without an adult figuring it out first. Other than that, my kids are learning their letters and learning to read!

Awesome website to get students ready for Reading. My school has started to use this website to help aid our students to become better readers. You can place your students into different stages of reading from first steps, to fun with words then to Champion reader. Your kids will love it, mine can’t get enough!

Amazing app!. I am a teacher and this has been a supplement to our curriculum. Each k-1st grade class that I have used it with absolutely love becoming the teacher to their monster. I use it as a reward on Fridays and the students don’t even know that their still learning the skills. The app is worth it because there’s no ads or anything extra to buy. Definitely worth $5.00!!

Fun! All my kids enjoy it!. I have 3 children who use this app, ages 4, 6 and 8. They are each playing at a different level. I think the app is very effective if combined with other programs and reinforced by the parent. We use it mostly for a fun way to bring more opportunities to enjoy reading into our home.

Kid taught himself to read. My kid taught himself to read before kindergarten during lock down just by playing this game. Starts really slow and simple but he didn’t mind because he hadn’t played any games before. Very gradual but effective!

Engaging. My kindergarten students really love this game and in the beginning I felt like they were learning a lot. But now I have noticed a few of them guessing more than actually testing their skills. I wish the app was better at incentivizing accuracy, because most kids will always choose the easiest path.

Great for reading intervention!. I work with students who struggle with reading foundational skills. My students in 1st-3rd love all the various games this app uses to help them practice reading words in isolation all the way up to full sentences. It’s wonderful to see students having fun while working on a skill that is difficult for them! I am more than satisfied.

4yo and 7yo loves it. We love this app- both kids are able to be challenged at their respective levels and learn and improve their sound association and reading. I was looking at the App Store and complete shocked this one isn’t ranked higher. It’s so great for my kids and recommend it when talking to other moms about ‘screen time’ any chance I get.

Great little app. My son is 4 and this app along with other free apps has helped him build his reading skills to an impressive degree. I really appreciate the quality and it has held his attention while giving him a solid foundation for reading. Thanks for the great free content.

Very educational yet fun!. My daughter loves this game and completed it awhile back! She got a certificate of completion!! She’s currently five years old and it’s too easy for her now but was not the case at first. I did practice with her along the way (blending, sight words) and this was a great reinforcer. I’m on the search now for something more difficult and will definitely be checking out other apps this developer has to offer.

Great rewards, pace, and graphics for 3 years old.. The space between the activity and the e-rewards keep my 3 year old engaged and playing. The games are easy to learn and actually help him review letter sounds outside of structured learning time. The graphics are simple and exciting and don’t have a bunch of extra things on the screen that are irrelevant or distracting.

It’s good but there’s something a bit wrong. The game is amazing! I love how you get to play multiple minigames and it teaches children a lot! And I love how the customization works. But I think there are 2 things that are a bit upsetting. 1: I think there should be a joystick for the walking and if there is I don’t know how to enable it. 2: I think there should be maybe a color pallet for you monster character.

Some programs too fast. I am a computer teacher at a local elementary school. I used the program for the first time with my kindergarteners. They love it but there are a few games that was a struggle for them. The first games is when you build the rocket, the mouse movement is too fast and the same for the flower game. The man is running to fast and the students don’t have time to click on the flowers to hear the letter sounds; which then the program tells the students that they when the wrong way.

Better than the other apps out there. I tried ABC Mouse and Hooked on Phonics and several other “highly” rated games for my kindergartner. None of them even come close to the quality, the fun, and the effectiveness of TAMTR. Save your money on the other scams and go with this.

Awesome reading app. My now 5 year old has been playing this game off and on for a few months. I am so impressed with how he is learning and reading. He is starting to read simple 2-3 Letter words. I decided I needed to put it on my daughter’s phone and she loves it too. I would rather my kiddos play this game over many other “educational apps. “ No Ads or asking to buy anything.

Best gamification, with solid pedagogy. I am a literacy specialist, and while my favorite reading game is “What’s Changed?” most fun is “Teach Your Monster”! It won’t actually teach YOUR monster to read, but it will introduce and reinforce essential knowledge and concepts in a logical, manageable order. Plus, it’s a really fun game, that looks and feels like a regular, non-reading game. My kids love it!

A guessing game. The app is alright, I will not recommend it to a parent as a primary learning tool. It's a guessing game and the child is rewarded even if they choose the wrong answer first. All they have to do is keep guessing until they get it right. I also downloaded to the wrong iPad, the only solution from the company was to pay for another download to the other iPad. I would have been okay with paying again but this doesn't seem like a good learning tool to me.

App do not work but can login on computer. This app doesn’t let me log in it says check internet connection n I have tried both connections this app doesn’t work. So I figured out after 2 weeks. I turned the password off thats the only way to get the app to allow me to login there should be instructions about this and customer service should be aware of it also they didnt help me at all and I have yet to receive a second reply to my email.

I’m 10 and I love it.. Hi so when I was in first grade I did this with my teacher and it really helped me and then by the time I was nine I was a homeschooler and I was looking through the App Store and I saw this app and omg I was so happy so I got it and played it ofc I had to start at the beginning and then when I was ten ( rn ). I found the app and started playing it again so I rlly recommend it

Love it!. This app is amazing! Both my 6 year old and 3 year old enjoy playing it and it really does help them with their letter sounds and reading skills. Worth every penny! Sometimes my 3 year old has difficulty figuring out what he is supposed to do, but the 6 year old will help him. I recommend this to everyone who is trying to help a child learn to read, especially for reluctant readers.

Great tool, could be American. I love this app for helping kids learn to read. I would like to see an American version. Certain words, such as “again,” are different enough to be confusing for young children. I’ll continue to use the app but I think the logical next step would be to add an American English option.

Impressed. As an educator, I am truly impressed with how well thought out and engaging teach monster is. I have a 6 year beginning reader and twin 4 year olds working to master sounds and symbols for reading. They enjoy playing and love all the fun and exciting mini games. I highly recommend this app!

Fun & Educational!. My 5 year old learned how to read with this app and now my two year old is learning so much just from watching his big brother play. I have recommended this game to all of my friends. I love it and cannot stop telling others about it! Finally a program that actually works to teach little kids how to read in a fun way. No wonder they won a BAFTA award!

The Best Reading App. I asked my 5 year old, as he read a book to me, “how did you learn to read?” He said, “from that app.” “Teach Your Monster to Read?” “Yeah!” I cannot imagine a greater honor, as a developer, than to teach kids something so fundamental and life-altering as reading. Well done and thank you from all the parents and kids you’ve helped.

Helps with speech development too. My 4 year old struggles with certain phonetic sounds, so these games are amazing for him. It’s easy to navigate. He’s so focused when he plays. I do wish the sight word stage lasted a little longer on simple sight words- as in he masters them first before full sentences. Great app!!

Not intuitive and very repetitive. My daughter is three and knows all her letters and their sounds very well. This app has many situations where the next step isn’t intuitive so I have to help her figure it out. It’s also VERY repetitive in nature. I will make a child go through 6 rounds of the same game with the same letter just in a different order. She’ll make it through one letter and then be bored. It doesn’t have any real progression or advancement at the speed that she needs.

Great tool. My daughter is 3 and eager to learn to read. While we work with other tools, this has been a fun and engaging way for her to practice skills that would otherwise seem boring and repetitive. I highly recommend this app or the computer version for anyone wanting to support their young reader!
