Tampa English Tutor Recommends Christopher Mouse for readers in 3rd to 5th grades

Posted on 9th February 2010 in Tampa Language Arts tutors

I really enjoy tutoring writing. I’m blessed to be able to do something that I like to do and get paid for it. Today I met one of my favorite students at the Panera on West Kennedy and worked with her on some ways to improve the assignments that she is doing for an online course at USF.

I also got the chance to read a children’s book that I found at the New Tampa Friend’s of the Library bookstore. It’s Christopher Mouse: The Tale of a Small Traveler by William Wise. I think I will work on creating a writing prompt to go with the book for one of my younger students.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this story because it’s well written, fun to read, and nicely illustrated. I think it would appeal to 3rd to 5th graders who have strong reading skills. I hope my student will enjoy it as much as I did.
