Monkey Junior is currently #1 popular learn to read program with millions of happy learners and counting.

Monkey Junior offers a comprehensive reading program for kids to learn to read with thousands of well-structured lessons in different levels and in multiple languages. Each lesson lasts from 7 to 10 minutes and kids can learn one or more lessons each day. No planning ahead, no preparation required for parents. It is fast, fun and effective.

Monkey Junior has no advertising, pop-up ads, or links to other sites. The little readers can learn and explore with their parents, or on their own (depending on age and ability), in a safe and secure online educational environment.

Your child will play a reading game, answer questions and complete lessons to improve their vocabulary and reading level. Start with basic verbs, nouns, phrases, and sentences and learn new words daily.

Monkey Junior adopts the whole word approach (i.e sight words) proposed by famous early education researchers such as Makato Shichida and Glenn Doman as well as traditional phonics approach. The curriculum is divided into three different reading levels: easy, medium and advanced, guiding your little readers to learn from individual sight words and phrases (with a total of 7,500 sight words, phrases) to sentence formation (over 2,000 sentences) along with a wide range of phonics rules (over 200 phonics sounds).

Not only does the kid improve his reading skills and his pronunciation, he will be enriched with encyclopedic knowledge. Our reading program covers 50 most popular reading topics for kids ranging from basic ones such as things at home, body parts, actions to advanced ones such as wild animals, occupations and businesses and science.

Our reading program uses sight, sound and touch to keep your child engaged in the whole lesson. We have a multimedia library with 6000 images, 2000 interactive videos and 10,000 audio files that are used to illustrate the words and the sentences. Children will enjoy completely tailored reading games at the end of each lesson that they can play and learn to read at their own pace.

Very Educational and it’s awesome - My daughter loves this app very much. She enjoys every part of the lessons. I hope we could have more subjects integrated in this app. Good job and thank you for making it free :)

Review by Nicknamewhat

Does not work! - Sounds like a great game. However it will not work at all. Never makes it past the initial menu. No response by customer service and no info in FAQ’s or anywhere online. Disappointing.

Version 1.0.3
Review by Xao

App keeps crashing - As soon as you close out of the App the incorrect way, ie: and not clicking on the “X” and slowly exit, it will never launch again until you remove the preferences file and then have to download all the content again. Also, there is no way to delete any profiles, so if you accidently create one, it’s stuck there, unless again, if you remove the preferences file. My child (5 in K), LOVES the app, but it is a major pain to keep it running. I am hoping they put some more time and effort into the Mac version, as I like to sit him down at a desk to work on this and use his iPad for fun games as a reward. I’m going to check out the iOS version next, hopefully that’s better, but I did ask for a refund for the $29 in-app purchase until they fix these issues. It is almost unusable at this point. For those who desperately want to get it working again, open up the “Terminal” application and type: rm -rf ~/Library/Containers/com.earlystart.monkeyJunior/ KEEP IN MIND THIS WILL DELETE ALL PROGRESS ALL COURSES DOWNLOADED AND ALL PROFILES!!!! However, the app will relaunch and you can restart the programs. Hope this helps, and I would love to work with the developer in resolving these issues, I’ve submitted no less than 20+ crash reports so far.
