Book Description

Titanic A to Z, the Story of the World's Most Famous Shipwreck, is a children's picture book that takes young readers, ages 5-9, through the alphabet to learn about the sinking of the Titanic. Authentic photos from 1912 make the true facts come alive as young readers learn about the Titanic without dwelling on the gloomy aspects.
Details seldom found in other Titanic books will answer such questions as: Did kids help build the Titanic? What did kids do for fun when on board the ship the first four days? Who brought their pets along? Why did the kids like the Titanic barbershop? Who saw the iceberg first? How did the Captain of the rescue ship find out the Titanic was sinking? What scared the survivors as they waited for the rescue ship to take them on board? How were the kids who survived carried on board the rescue ship?
The introduction tells the story of the Titanic, followed by interesting details added in an alphabetic sequence. Suitable to read aloud to younger children while boys and girls who read at 2nd or 3rd grade reading level can enjoy reading it to themselves.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great resource to teach the children about Titanic February 27, 2013
By JennlyT
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Being a Titanic fanatic since my youth, I was glad to see this available on Kindle. I picked it up for my six year old and together we read through it as part of his homework assignments.

This book is a great little resource to teach children about Titanic without dwelling too much on the loss of life. Not to say that it's not mentioned, because it is, but it's not done is such a way as to cause nightmares or instill a fear of ever setting foot on a cruise ship. In fact, the text has prompted him to ask more questions about Titanic and the wreck, which has fostered a dialogue between he and I regarding what happened and how it relates to our world today.

The book is actually split into three parts. The first is an introduction that tells briefly the story of the sinking; the second being the A to Z and the third, a brief mention of how she was rediscovered by Dr Robert Ballard in 1985. There are also numerous authentic photos to assist in telling her story.

My only disappointment with the book is that part three only touches on Dr. Ballard's initial discovery. I would have loved to have seen this section more expanded to speak about the other ongoing expeditions to Titanic along with photos of how she appears today. Especially considering that the publication date was April 17, 2012, I feel that the author may have missed out by not adding in more information regarding present day Titanic to commemorate the 100th anniversary.

That is just my opinion though. :)Even without my "wish list", I still give it high marks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Titanic A to Z April 19, 2012
By BHass
Format:Kindle Edition
A most interesting, quick read. Little-known facts are presented in an easy to understand, short format that can hold a child's attention and educate the adult reader as well. The author has managed to convey the excitement of the tragedy, without being too scary for a child, and instead focuses on the details of the ship itself, and it's passengers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for beginners June 1, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a great book for kids or someone just looking for basic information. I'm quite the Titanic fanatic and didn't learn anything new but this is well written and informative if you don't know much about the "unsinkable ship".

4.0 out of 5 stars A good overview and introduction to the Titanic. May 31, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Written in three parts, this book first tackles the sinking of the Titanic, which includes some of the people and animals on board, along with the loading of the lifeboats etc.

Part 2 is the A to Z section where each letter of the alphabet corresponds with an item/happening on the Titanic or something linked with the Titanic like the failure of the SS Californian to respond to its distress calls (Letter S). Other examples A is for Anchor, M is for Musicians, R is for Rockets.

The third section focuses on the discovery of the Titanic in 1985.

The index is linked so easy to find and go to what you wish to read. The paragraphs are short and to the point so a great overview for independent readers starting to learn about the Titanic. For die hard Titanic fans (yes there are kids out there like that), you are going to want to read a more comprehensive book on the subject.
