If you are working with a group of children that are emergent readers, you can introduce them to our early literacy game called Feed The Monster. This game is available in more than 50 languages.

For emergent readers, we also have a separate category of books with less than 50 words.

For preliterate users, we have a collection of books that are wordless with engaging illustrations.
