View the stories your way

Like other stories from The Story Mouse, Columbus’ tales operate in a choice of modes. In “Read it to me” mode, the pages turn automatically as the narrator tells the story. Or, choose “Read it myself” to turn the voice off and turn the pages at your own pace.

It’s a great way of reading along with your children while they gain real confidence learning their ABCs.

Phrase highlighting and fun illustrations

In “Read it to me” mode, phrases are highlighted as they are read, making the stories easy to follow for young learners.

Columbus’ tales are illustrated by Chris White whose sense of wit and fun jump out of every picture. Chris has blended characterful pictures with a strong element of learning.

Columbus lives at The Story Mouse

Columbus the Explorer Mouse is written for children from ages 2-5 and he’s made his home at The Story Mouse.

Columbus’ storyteller is Larissa Murray, a professional actor and voiceover artist whose credits include TV, radio, films and cartoons. Her warm, North American accent makes her the perfect person to bring Columbus’ adventures to life.
