Mark Twain for Kids

$ 7.48 $ 14.95

Nineteenth-century America and the world of Samuel L. Clemens, better known as Mark Twain, come to life as children journey back in time with this history- and literature-laden activity book. The comprehensive biographical information explores Mark Twain as a multi-talented man of his times, from his childhood in the rough-and-tumble West of Missouri to his many careers—steamboat pilot, printer, miner, inventor, world traveler, businessman, lecturer, newspaper reporter, and most important, author—and how these experiences influenced his writing. Twain-inspired activities include making printer’s type, building a model paddlewheel boat, unmasking a hoax, inventing new words, cooking corn-pone, planning a newspaper, observing people, and writing maxims. An extensive resource section offers information on Twain’s classics, such as Tom Sawyer and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, as well as a listing of recommended web sites to explore.

The exhibition Mark Twain and the Holy Land (October 25, 2019 – February 2, 2020) commemorates the 150th anniversary of one of the best-selling travelogues of all time, The Innocents Abroad, as it illuminates Mark Twain’s fabled journey and explores his and other Americans’ perceptions of the Holy Land in the postbellum era.
