The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and Other Novels Reviews

    advanced 4th grade to 6th gradeAlthough nothing beats the full versions of these classic novels, the Great Illustrated Classic format is a good way for young readers to become familiar with the story of the originals. The illustrated classic version has about 21 lines of 18 point font on every page. There is a black and white ink picture on the right side of every page that helps to illustrate the story. The sentence structure is more complex than early transitional readers. Compared to the original text of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, the illustrated classic version is much more manageable for an elementary child. Content Area: Social Studies/U.S. History/Language ArtsLesson Plan: Focusing on the historical aspect of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, one can notice many references to the way that people thought, acted and lived pre-civil war. Students can read the illustrated classic version and compare this to what they are learning about the civil war.

    The Prince and the Pauper is one of those books that I started reading in childhood. Since then, I bet I've read it twenty or more times. Most recently, I read it out loud to my husband as we traveled, earlier this year. It's a challenging out-loud read, but an enduring and endearing story.If I'm feeling in a hurry when I read it, then I do a sort of "good parts" read: I read the early stuff about Tom, about his meeting with the prince, and then mainly about Tom's adventures after that. I tend to read less of the prince's part of the book (although I really like the character of Miles Hendon).I highly recommend it for anyone of any age. I think I read it first when I was eight or nine. I had to ask for help with a fair amount of the archaic words, but that didn't stop me!In fact, I need a new copy. Mine is falling apart!

    Tom Sawyer is, without a doubt, one of my favorite books. I read it when I was in my early teens and it's still tops on my list of “personal favorites”. It is rich with so much of what living a full life is all about. It has adventure, love, duty, friendship, family, loyalty, freedom, not to mention the innocence and experience of growing up in a small town in the Deep South, during the time of slavery. It’s a genuine treasure.

    I read this in a Am. Lit. college course. This is a great book. The story, the plot, the characters, everything. The dialogue in this book is based on local dialects found in that region of the country in that era.Twain worked on riverboats along the Mississippi River for several years when he was a young man. He gives us brief glimpses into life in that era.

    I have my mom's copy that she had as a kid. Lots of scribbles. A lot of subtle humor. I liked the treatment of poverty and extravagant wealth, no pity and brutally honest. Intense for a kids book but a good book for kids none the less. Good book to read aloud.

    This is only supposed to refer to The Prince and the Pauper, but this was all they had. What would it be like to live in royalty, then live as a tramp? What would it be like to live as a tramp, then become the Prince of England, soon to be King?

    Always been a fan of Mark Twain's works. The best boy-hood book I have read. I loved the mischief and the social issues entwined within a light-hearted plot.
