Literature Study: Mark Twain, Adventures of Tom Sawyer & Huckleberry Finn

We ended the Reconstruction period in May of last year and now are moving ahead toward learning about the Railroads, the Western Frontier and so Mark Twain fits in nicely in this time period.

We are reading together the book "The Trouble Begins at 8: A Life of Mark Twain in the Wild, Wild West"  by Sid Fleischman. And so, I thought reading one or two of Mark Twain's writings might be perfect. We decided on Adventures of Tom Sawyer.

To change things up a bit and since my youngest is reading several other books at this point I found an audio book of it so that he could just listen and follow along, enjoying the colorful language of the time.

If we would like there is a literature guide to go along with the book found here. 

Later on, if we want we might go ahead and also do Adventures of Huckleberry Finn as well, along with the study guide.

Happy Reading~ !
