"My daughter hates reading. Despite all the efforts she probably read much less that her peers. She likes to write, but due to lack of reading her vocabulary and spelling just isn't great. To my surprise she loves Night Zookeeper and she is very keen to do all the tasks."

"My son is a very reluctant reader, but he loves Night Zookeeper! He was on it for over 2 hours on his first day. We had to urge him to put it down. I can see a great year ahead of us!"

"My daughter usually gravitates towards graphic novels so she wouldn't have to read as much and was overall slightly behind her grade's reading level before using this. Now she has enthusiasm for reading, her vocabulary has grown, and she wants to write more often."

Frequently Asked Questions
How does Night Zookeeper improve reading and writing?
By providing thousands of fun and engaging lessons, challenges, and games, Night Zookeeper helps children to learn new words, use them in sentences, and then create amazing pieces of writing that are shared with children from around the world. They receive feedback from our team of tutors as well as other children that highlight where they can improve. In-game awards and competitions keep them motivated to continue to learn and progress.
What will my child write about?
They’ll write about everything, from stories about magical animals to instructions on how to make the perfect hot chocolate. All genres of writing are gradually introduced including newspaper articles, persuasive writing, reports, and poetry.
But my child doesn't like writing! Can this help?
In short, yes indeed! Night Zookeeper has been proven over and over to inspire even the most reluctant writers to develop a love of writing. Trust us, your child will love it too!
How often should we use Night Zookeeper?
Children should try to use Night Zookeeper a minimum of 30 minutes a week to get the best out of the program. This will give them time to complete their weekly assignments and check feedback from their tutors. But there is SO much to do on Night Zookeeper so we recommend a few hours a week to really take advantage of all the material on offer, and to help your child improve their reading and writing faster.
