Back in the Saddle! Summer Reading 2010
The Adventures of Tom Sawyer
A wonderful summer classic for children in first grade through sixth. The Adventures of Tom Sawyer is based on the classic story by Mark Twain. Tom's adventures begin with a whitewashed fence, a sweet girl named Becky, Huckleberry Finn, and tales of pirating and treasure hunting. Only after a surprising funeral and a murder trial where the truth is uncovered does the audience see Tom not only as an adventurer but also as a moral hero. Join BCT to share in lessons of bravery, truth, and adventure where Tom meets his match and mischievous fun begins...Tom Sawyer style.
1. Some great activities to do with this book would be to use role-playing by assigning characters to each child or family member.
2. This book is a part of Alabama's The Big Read Initiative, a great starter novel for you and your child to enjoy! Visit this website for more details and fun things to do with this book: http://www.neabigread.org/books/theadventuresoftomsawyer/teachersguide02.php
