He requested a few different books about the ship, and I happened to find this one along the way. And I'm so glad I did. It had information in it that he hadn't yet learned.
It's a good sized book, maybe a bit heavy for a 10 year old to be carrying to school, but chock full of information and a high quality printing.
What's great about this book, for adults and children alike, is that it's well-researched, doesn't repeat old myths, and has a very easy-to-approach format. Kids can get overwhelmed by the sheer amount of background, history, and narrative in the Titanic story. This book breaks the story down into interesting, accurate, bite-sized facts that allow kids to put the pieces of the story in place by themselves. Besides, kids love to show off their knowledge of trivia tidbits!
Of all the many Titanic books my boy has, he returns to this one again and again. Although now, thanks to other Titanic books, he will correct the title -- the Titanic has been variously cited as 882.75 and 882.9 feet long. I told him that, with all that riveted steel, it certainly expanded and contracted by an inch or two depending on temperature inside and outside the hull, and whether it was in dry dock or in the water. That seems to satisfy him that it's not quite wrong to say it was 882-1/2 feet long.
Highly, highly recommended for any young -- or even not-so-young -- Titanic aficionado.
