Everything you wanted to know about the RMS (Royal Mail Steamship) Titanic you'll find in this book. Well illustrated with diagrams, photos and maps, the book gives an excellent overview of the ill fated ship’s first and final voyage. One section of the book not only discusses the ship’s final hours, it diagrams what was happening to the hull.
This book is so much more than the "disaster." It talks about history, culture, science, geography, physics in ways that are understandable - and relevant - to kids.
My friend’s son enjoyed the book and wants to read more about the ship and sea disasters in general.
The book is well designed, with lots of good information. It is an excellent way of introducing a youngster to the story of the Titanic.
This picture book commemorates the 100th anniversary of the Titanic disaster.
This is a picture book that can be used with older readers not only to discuss the history of the RMS Titanic and the sinking, the material about what was happening to the ship itself is valuable for science and physics. Plotting the timeline and contributing factors (weather patterns and reports; ego; economics and society) can also be valuable.
