The Word Monsters passes 50,000 downloads

April 8th 2013 – Dublin, Ireland – Since its launch in March The Word Monsters has averaged around 2000 downloads a day and has now reached nearly 60,000 downloads worldwide. International rankings of this decodable reading series have been solidly high – reaching the top 15 in USA, Canada and China, and the top 5 in Australia and New Zealand.

“We're delighted to see our efforts rewarded by this surge in activity around The Word Monsters”, says MindConnex CEO Michael Cordner, “There is obviously a demand in the app market for high quality educational products for younger children and we’re thrilled that The Words Monsters is meeting that demand.”

The Word Monsters uses phonics, interactive animation, activities, and additional optional instruction in a quirky narrative environment to give children a rich and engaging introduction to reading. Each "book" is developed in accordance with modern literacy pedagogical standards while still remaining appealing to today’s children.

Every screen in The Word Monsters features optional supplementary instruction around phonemic awareness, print concepts, reading comprehension, vocabulary and sight words. Every book also includes three activities that address each of the main strands of the Common Core Standards: Literature, Foundational Skills, and Language.

The Word Monsters series is designed for use at home or in a school setting. The first six books of the Kindergarten series are now available in the Apple App Store and Google Play and the first book is free!
