The Mini Page

In November you can read all about Mark Twain in The Mini Page!
The Museum is happy to have been able to work with the editors on this project.
As a former elementary school teacher, I'm a big fan of "The Mini Page" - a Universal Press Syndicate feature for children appearing in more than 500 newspapers since 1969.  I used to laminate these and share them with my students and was always impressed by the wide array of subjects they covered.

We were contacted by the editors of The Mini Page recently and asked to help with an important upcoming topic: Mark Twain!  In honor of Sam Clemens's 175th birthday, The Mini Page will feature our hero in its Nov. 13-19 issue.  We are thrilled to have played a small part in providing information and images and hope you all get a chance to read it.  Let's hope that classroom teachers will save this copy for future students, too!

  1. My kids love the mini-page. They fight over who gets it first every week. Will look forward to seeing this one.
