Lewis Carroll Shelf Award,  The Great American Read #17 ( Top 100)

Tom Sawyer is one of the most popular protagonists in the history of American literature. Although Tom resides in a small, ordinary Missouri town, his daring exploits land him in the center of many thrilling adventures. Tom lives with his Aunt Polly, an elderly woman who dearly loves her nephew but struggles to control her mischievous charge. Tom loathes going to school or church. He would rather spend time immersed in fictional plots or romancing Becky Thatcher, the new girl in town. Tom envies the life of Huckleberry Finn, the town outcast. Huck, homeless and essentially an orphan, can do whatever he pleases and doesn't have to obey anyone. 

And then, while testing a wart-removal cure in the town graveyard, Tom and Huck witness the brutal murder of Dr. Robinson! Throw in some buried treasure, getting lost in a cave during a Sunday School picnic, and being threatened by Injun Joe and you've got real adventure!

    American Literature

    Posted by Martha on 3rd Apr 2021

    Tom Sawyer is a classic and it is nice to be lead through the story in a systematic way. It gives your student a solid course on the study of this classic. I used it with a 10th grader. The answer key allows you to discuss the book even if you don't feel comfortable with in-depth analyzation. The author has done the work for you. I appreciate the scripture that is throughout the text and how it is incorporated in the study guide. I'm half -way through the study. It is very doable for even the most unorganized person. It is organized in 5 chapter increments which is. a perfect amount to handle in one sitting. The vocabulary word section is especially interesting.

    We are using this guide

    Posted by Sharmila D. on 4th Apr 2015

    We are using this guide with my two homeschooled sons aged 11 and 12. So far we have only completed 1 unit. My boys work through it independently and I then check the answers using the answer key and using it almost as a leap pad for a 'Socratic ' discussion. I don' t necessarily have them write out the answers for each and every question/ activity. But it works well either way, having the student work independently or using it as a comprehension check gauge which is what I was really looking for when I found these- some sort of question- answer guide for some of the many books my kiddos devour and me left wondering - how much are they getting out of it? Well, I can see these guides serving that purpose , only wish they cost bit less...!
