Today I visited a new English tutoring client in Odessa, Florida.
Perhaps because of the cold weather, I selected Jack London’s “To Build a Fire” as today’s short story.
I thought the story might appeal to this student because he has a sense of adventure.
With his younger brother, I read “Casey at the Bat,” one of my favorite baseball poems.

I would like to find some good short stories about baseball for the student. Does anyone have any suggestions? He is a strong reader at the seventh or eighth grade level.
