If you  would like to know more about the company behind Jonty the Dinosaur, Oken Studios Limited.

We are an independent studio who form and develop characters and adventures that try to capture the imagination and enthral those reading about them. Our simple aim is to create stories children love and would want to read over and over again.

Jonty – The Dinosaur Who Could Not Go to Sleep utilises “Invisible Learning”, a technique which incorporates the learning of new skills into gameplay, this means that children who may not enjoy traditional teaching methods can learn whilst playing and without realising that they are doing so. This is a technique that was developed in order to encourage children to learn through the use of technology.

In this story, we wanted to provide a space that children can explore safely, learn to read and develop their creativity – and share all this with Jonty and his world. Enjoy!

If you haven’t joined Jonty on his adventures yet, where better to start our first blog then with an introduction.

Jonty is a young dinosaur can’t get to sleep after a busy day. During the day he has lots of fun playing in the park with his best friend Bronty and helping his mum make pizza. When bedtime finally arrives, Jonty finds that he can’t go to sleep as there are too many distractions.

You and your child can interact with the app as you read the story together. While Jonty plays in the park, see what happens when you tap on different objects. Help Jonty make a pizza with his mum, you can choose the toppings! At bedtime you can help your child to work out what is stopping Jonty getting to sleep and fix them, allowing him to get a good night’s sleep.

We believe that when learning to read is fun, children will learn to love words and language.
