I love this series. Each book uses the letters of the alphabet to desribe details of historical events etc.

I was surprised at how much information was in this particular book, but it really helped my 6 yr old wrap his mind around this event. He's genuinely interested in history, but he doesn't quite understand why the past would have such an impact on people today.

This book presented the story in a way that helped my son understand that it's not just another ship that sank in the ocean.

This is a really interesting books containing some of the lessor known facts about the Titanic and its passengers. The format, while not terribly useful for research or school reports, is fun because the reader never knows what he or she will learn next. This will be a nice addition to my elementary school library.

Several weeks ago, my wife read Titanicat (True Stories) to our 4-year-old granddaughter and she was fascinated by the story and the pictures.

So, when this book, T is for Titanic: A Titanic Alphabet (Sleeping Bear Alphabets), was offered to us by Amazon Vine, I immediately grabbed it.

I read it to the little girl two days ago and I have to tell you - she seemed to be even more fascinated with this one than the previous one. Of course that may be because she now had certain knowledge which influenced her; she had enjoyed the first book so why not this one too? (I am too far away from a 4-year-old mind to know just what goes through them!)

The book is arranged in alphabetical order with each letter representing something about the Titanic (some of them, however, seem a bit far-fetched, though this is not objectionable). Each letter has a short poem and a paragraph or two of explanation. I read the poems to her and I merely paraphrased the explanatory material in a way she could (hopefully) understand.

I have only one quibble with one of the poems: it seems to me that, in the poem, the watertight doors would seem to prevent the ship from sinking. Obviously they didn't work and I had to explain that to her. But the other poems appear to stand fairly well on their own. (The poem about the little French boys required some additional explanation too.)

The pictures are beautiful as is the paper, the printing, and the binding.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Alphabet books or ABC books are one of the mainstays of the picture book genre; the trick to success, beyond having a good author and a good illustrator (or a good author/illustrator) of course, is to come up with something that appeals to young and old alike. In this example Sleeping Bear Press, authors Debbie & Michael Shoulders, and illustrator Gijsbert van Frankenhuyzen have done just that,...

for those interested in the Titanic.

However, I was disappointed in many of the examples chosen by Debbie & Michael Shoulders: A for Anatomy and Y for the Years 1912 and 2012 seemed real stretches, and several others seemed oddly chosen.

Note on reading level: In another bit of brilliance, the book has two (countem' two!) reading levels: a simpler, four line, single stanza poem that usually begins with, "_ is for _____" and a higher level, much longer, smaller type section detailing the history behind the choice of the given word. Thus young children can read the poem themselves while parents can read aloud the detailed explanations. Unfortunately, many of the poems supplied here are, to put it bluntly, terrible: poorly rhymed, poorly metered, and full of great big words likely to frustrate the young readers they are aimed at.

IMHO this is a marvelous idea, readily replicable for a lot of historical subjects (like the far superior IMHO F is for Fenway: America's Oldest Major League Ballpark, but as this volume demonstrates, poor execution can mightily damage the result.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
T is for Titanic is from the Alphabet series by Sleeping Bear Press. They specialize in nonfiction children's picture books. I have many for teaching. They range from holidays to places and people. P is for Pilgrim, I is for Idea, S is for Smithsonian, etc. This book focuses on the Titanic for its 100th Anniversary. The book follows the usually format, there is a short passage so that a teacher or parent can read aloud to younger children and a longer more detailed passage to elaborate the short passage. For example, A is for Anatomy of the Titanic, B is for Bridge, etc. with a short rhyme for young kids. The side panels elaborate about the anatomy of the Titanic and the bridge of the ship, etc. The short rhymes are great to read to kids and discuss before and after. Kids enjoy it. The longer passages are for the adults and older kids are meant to be read silently. I find the books interesting and this one is no different. I learned more about the Titanic and I thought I knew a lot already. The book choses interesting topics to highlight, I didn't know how interesting the anatomy of the ship could be and that there were dogs on the ship, 3 survived. K is for Kodak tells of a priest who took photos on the Titanic and was told by his order to depart when the ship got to Ireland. He later put the camera in a trunk and never developed the film. In 1986, a relative was given the trunk and developed the film. Cool! Nice information and teaching moment for the Titanic.
