Learn to Read

(Posted from Usborne Publishing Facebook page)

With schools disrupted by coronavirus, we’ve made the app free for a very limited time. Please share this!

As a result of disruption in schools due to coronavirus, we’ve made Teach Your Monster to Read free across the world, in order to help children learn to read whilst at home.

Our award-winning phonics and reading games have been played over 160 million times and are used by thousands of teachers as part of their phonics and literacy education.

The app has recently been approved by the UK government Department for Education’s Hungry Little Minds campaign to help parents find high quality educational apps for kids.

With children learning from home due to school closures and self-isolation cases, as a not-for-profit, we want to do what we can to mitigate the disruption and help children continue learning. Millions of children use the app every month and we want to make sure every child can access it at home.


Our app (covering everything from letters and sounds to reading full sentences) is free on Apple today and Amazon from Thursday March 19. It’s also free to play on laptops and PCs at and just £0.99 / $0.99 on Google Play Store*.

It is usually £4.99 / $4.99 and it has no in-app purchases or adverts. The special offers will run until Monday March 23rd. We can’t guarantee when we’ll run this offer again.

Once downloaded, it’s free to continue to use on that device even after the promotion has ended.

App store download links:
Apple (free now):
Amazon UK (free Thursday):
Amazon US (free Thursday):
Google (£0.99 / $0.99 now):

*Due to Google Play Store policy not allowing a new sale to start within 30 days after the completion date of the last sale, we’re unable to give our app away for free on Google Play Store because we just recently ran a free promotion. For this reason we’ve priced it at £0.99 / $0.99.
