What is Maneno?

Maneno is a new and different reading app, designed to help children become strong readers.


Maneno is a reading app that is available for your tablet. At the moment we support iOS and Android. You are currently able to download Maneno in App Store and Google Play and use on your tablet, iPad, iPad mini and CromeBook.


We exhibit a wide selection of popular children's books in various levels of difficulty and genres. We make sure that each book is of a high quality and therefore we only provide books that we know that the children love.


Maneno is inspired by the popular Tamagotchi game from the 90's. In Maneno, the children are given their own dragon, that they have to "feed" by reading to it every day.

Your child will be motivated to read!

Reading IS hard. As a child, you will be faced with a lot of challenges on your “reading journey”, which can leave even the best of readers with very little motivation to read. Therefore, it is extremely important that reading is made fun for the child, so we can focus on the good stories that will motivate the child to keep reading all through life.

ALL children who have tried Maneno - are drawn by the Maneno-universe. Because it's new, fun and exciting. It speaks directly to the child because reading is made into a game.
In Maneno, your child receives their own “reading-dragon” that they must take care of and read for each day. If they are able to read every day, the dragon grows bigger and smarter little by little.

The child reads to his dragon by choosing from the hundreds of children's books available in the library. The books can be read offline or online.

There are numerous books of various levels of difficulty and genres that allow the child to immerse in just the book that suits him. It is therefore a perfect tool for children to learn to read. And the best thing is .... you don’t have to think about which reading level you are on! Maneno keeps an eye on the child's reading level and displays books that suit the child. At the same time, Maneno lifts the child's reading level by letting the child challenge himself with more difficult books.

In addition to the children always having hundreds of children's books at their fingertips, they can also get help, through various help features built into Maneno. This makes it easy for the child to get reading assistance even if there is not an adult present.

Maneno is a reading app that lets the children discover how fun and inspiring it can be to be absorbed by good books.

How can Maneno help your child?

The reading app has many other very useful features, so that the child always gets the best possible experience every time. In Maneno you will find word explanations, both in the form of images and synonyms.

Every book has an assignment that the child can complete and thereby confirm whether the story is understood correctly. A reading feature has also been installed where the child can record a reading and immediately after check if the reading was done correctly.

Why read on a tablet?

Kids love iPads and you've probably seen how their interest is awakened when there's an iPad nearby. Reading on a tablet allows children to see and touch the words and interact with the content. Why not use this curiosity to make them want to read? Compared to traditional physical books, the electronic books offers a unique opportunity to get closer to the books and get help while reading.

The best help you can give

As parents, we are interested in helping our children as much as possible. You can help your child to become a better reader by giving them access to Maneno. In Maneno we do everything to help your child become a better reader. We do this by continuously analyzing the children's reading patterns and identifying how we can best support them.


A lot of children can’t be bothered to read. Motivation is the foundation of becoming a good reader. Maneno provides the built-in dragon concept to motivate the children to read. Once your child has entered the Maneno univers he will want to read, without you having to tell him to.
