Teach Your Monster to Read

Developing Skills and Knowledge

The Teach Your Monster to Read (TYMTR) series consists of three games: First Steps (2012), Fun with Words (2013) and Champion Reader (2015). The games have been played over a quarter of a billion times by children in home and school settings around the world, but more prominently in the USA, UK, Canada, Australia and China. In February 2020, the Department for Education recommended parents use TYMTR to help pre-school children learn at home. With the mandatory school-closures in the UK due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the games helped over 2.6 million children learn to read at home in March 2020 alone. Feedback from teachers and parents - thousands of testimonials and reviews – shows how the games have significantly improved the engagement and reading skills of children, particularly in the US and UK.
