5.0 out of 5 stars A lovely children's book based on true events! July 12, 2012
By Becky
Format:Kindle Edition
A story both children and adults will enjoy. This story tells a realistic account of a young child on the Titanic. Children will love how Eva brings her cat on the journey, the adventure before and after the disaster, and all the characters who appear throughout the story. Along with that, they will have the bonus of learning some historical facts about the Titanic. The illustrations are also very lovely!

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for young readers & little students! June 26, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I am so pleased to read author Sidsel Carnahan's newly released children's book about the Titanic! The story is partially based on the account of Titanic survivor, Eva Hart. (Who was, in real life, a Second Class passenger, only 7 years old in 1912. Her young age made her a fitting passenger to choose for a book written for 6 to 9 year-olds.)

The story is perfect for young readers & little students who are learning about the events of the Titanic. You'll get to discover the Ship of Dreams through the eyes of young Eva Hart. In this story, Eva is traveling to America with her parents, and she obscurely takes her little white kitten aboard with her (although her mom and dad are quite unaware of this fact). The girl's main concern is to keep this secret safe for 7 whole days while riding across the ocean. With her kitten tagging along, Eva meets other people on the ship, like Captain Smith, Margaret Brown, and even making friends with the Navratil Orphans (Michel and Edmond). Incorporating these characters into the plot was a cute way to introduce other passengers to curious, developing minds.

Overall, I found the story to be quite educational and factual, so that young readers are learning realistic details about the tragedy. My favorite part of the story was the description of the ship sinking. The main events of that fateful night are all touched upon---the panic, the lifeboats, the rescue, the aftermath. This is a book I'd definitely recommend!

Sidsel wrote this book and illustrated it herself too. I thought her drawings were adorable, colorful, and quite fitting. The 22 hand-drawn pictures clearly depict accurate views of the Titanic. She did a wonderful job on both the illustrations and the writing. By the way, you should check out the Facebook fan page for this book!

After reading this story of Eva Hart, I am quite eager to peruse Eva's true personal account that she wrote decades after the disaster, in 1994.

5.0 out of 5 stars Definetely worth it! May 17, 2012
By JTiller
Format:Kindle Edition
The book is both factual and can be used as a great bedtime story for younger readers. It tells the story of a little girl who was aboard the titanic on that fateful day. The art work in particular is exquisite! The drawings are great to grab the attention of younger readers and they really are great pieces of art! A great way to encourage children to read, as well as learn about this historical situation!

5.0 out of 5 stars A child's view May 15, 2012
By Kruemi
Format:Kindle Edition
This children's book is based on the childhood memories of Eva Heart, a surviver of the Titanic catastrophe and is told from her point of view as a little girl. The photograph with her and her parents in the end of the book underlines the authenticity of the story.
Eva reports in the simple language every child this book is meant for will understand. I think the illustrations adorable; I especially like the cat.
All in all I'd say that "Eva and Little Kitty on the Titanic" is a story that transports the feelings of a small girl that first enjoys her trip but then has to experience the horror of seeing the ship sinking while sitting in a life boat her father wasn't allowed to enter.
