I am reading this to my kids at school. They love it! It is absolutely quiet except for predictions about what will happen next or asking to read more. There are a few parts near the end that I have had to hand the book over to a student to read because I couldn't read. The kids understood why I was teary and just took over. They want the next books in the series.

This book, "I Survived the Sinking of the Titanic" is the best book I've read in my entire life. It is about a boy named George who lives with his Aunt Daisy, and his "guardian angel" sister Phoebe. He goes on the biggest ship in the history of the world, the Titanic! He goes to see his Dad in New York. Eveerybody knows what happened to the Titanic, but this is before that. What will happen? Will George meet new people? Will George lead or will he be the caboose to safety? Will his family survive? Will his friends survive? Will HE survive?

READ TO FIND OUT!

(Written by a 4th grade boy in Mrs. Marta's class.)

In this 16 chapter, 96 page book, sprinkled with illustrations every 10 pages, the story centers around a boy named George who survives the Titanic.

My 9 year old son is not taking to reading like I hoped he would and this series of books in the 4.0 AR zone area have been the only ones that he really loves to read with a passion. The author obviously know how to get boys attention and hold it...action, action, action, with characters boys can easily relate to.

My son really cares about the 'George' and it brings the Titanic tragedy to life for him.

I hope the author keeps writing and if she needs any ideas, I have many and would be glad to help keep this series alive, because this is a wonderful thing for boys to have. If she doesn't keep writing, I may start because this format/subject/writing style, strikes the perfect chords for my son to get on the reading train. Thank you.

I like I SURVIVED THE SINKING OF THE TITANIC, 1912 because it is historical fiction. I've read a lot of nonfiction books about the Titanic, but I've never read a historical fiction book. I also like it because there are facts on the back that the author didn't include in the story. If you like the Titanic, you should read this book.

My daughter was reading this book for a book report for school. She is 10, and she absolutely loved it. I decided to read it as well, since she enjoyed it so much. The historical facts are interesting and you feel as if you know the characters. It is very well written and a page turner. Highly recommended for a historical fiction read.

Both my son and daughter love this book series. They are an interesting quick read for elementary age children. Good age appropriate depictions of different historical events.

My 9 year old granddaughter has been working on her reading, with my help. We began an intensive reading program with Island of the Blue Dolphins which she truly enjoyed and will do her quarterly book report on. Then for the Christmas used book exchange at the charter school she attends, she received a copy of this book. She read nonstop until she completed it and told me that she will read I Survived: The Shark Attacks of 1916 next.

Having been a lifelong reader, I'm highly pleased she's found a set of books to compete with her gaming time. Yes, she gave up Minecraft time to read this book. Looking forward to many more hours of pleasant reading with the "I Survived" books.

I chose my rating because this book had outstanding details and surprises. Honestly, I thought it was flawless. I really loved the surprise when Aunt Daisy opens Phoebe's bed curtains and she's not there. Little Enzo's character was just down right adorable and he was a great addition to the book. What really hooked me was when suddenly the sailor said there was no room for George in the lifeboat. It was awesome and I can't wait to read the next book.
