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.

Good material, but can’t use with mutiple Mac users


We have this on a Mac that is normally offline, since we don’t have fast Internet. We took the computer to a location with fast internet and spent several hours downloading all the lessons. But upon returning home, we discovered that only the original Mac user can access the downloaded lessons. We want to have our daughter in her own protected Mac account. Alas, all other Mac users (as opposed to inside-the-app profiles) require redownloading hundreds of megabytes of lesson files.

Also, despite purchasing the whole US lesson kit, there is no way to download all the lessons at once. You have to navigate to each of the fifteen lessons and download them, which takes about ten minutes each on a fast Internet connection, and has to be baby-sat during the process. This is not good app design for multiple users!

Amazing…. I love it !!!!!

Nicol _4287

it’s amazing it shows kids how to learn about all types of thing in different types of languages. In this case my kids learnt french and they had a blast leaning every night before going to bed the would get the computer out and practice and they would be on it for about an hour before going to sleep, they absoulutely adore it and now they can even speak it and well i’m jealous since i am having a bit of a hard time understanding them.I guuess it’s my turn to learn a different language too :)

Great learning app


My son is loving this app so far. cant wait to see how far he can advance with it. Thank you for a great product. would be nice if they would give the child more time to read the word before saying it or when doing the word review they went a bit slower to allow the child to read the words.
