Person of the Month: Mark Twain

Person of the Month: Mark Twain

On November 30, 1835, an American writer, publisher, and lecturer was born his name is Mark twain. So this month, the children learned about him, some of them kept by heart two or three of his famous quotes like:

“If you tell the truth, you don’t have to remember anything.”

“The secret of getting ahead is getting started.”

“Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.”

And also, they watched a short documentary movie about the Mark Twain National Forest which is located in the southern half of Missouri. Also, the children were so excited when we told them about The Mark Twain Riverboat that goes on a gentle cruise around Tom Sawyer Island in Disneyland. That’s the same route that the Sailing Ship Columbia and Davy Crockett Explorer Canoes take. Parents, be prepared to hear from your children a new reason to go to Disneyland: to ride the Mark Twain Riverboat. We also previewed for the children Mark Twain’s books like Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn.

Below are arts and crafts inspired by the legacy of Mark Twain:
