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.

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 husband and I both LOVE to read and we never worried that our son would grow to enjoy it, too. Yet by the time 3rd grade rolled around, we had a child who HATED reading books. The bookcase in our living room grew heavier with more enticing tales and he wouldn't read a single page in any of them. He enjoyed the books I read aloud to him very much but he simply refused to read on his own. "Diary of a Whimpy Kid!" everyone shouted. He wouldn't touch them. "Hatchet!" they urged. We read it aloud after he refused to begin it on his own. Then someone said "Buy the four dollar 'I Survived' series and trust me, he will read from then on." Yeah, okay.

Since my son had recently shown interest in the Titanic after watching a documentary, I bought this book used off Amazon just to see if it would spark his interest. It arrived in the mail and he was happy when I told him the package was for him. He opened it and was curious. He actually read a page.
Now, I'll be honest. The book sat for months untouched. Then one day he decided to look at it again, all on his own. He read a few more pages. Next thing we knew he was refusing to turn off his light and go to sleep because he was reading. He was ignoring my requests for him to put away his laundry because he was reading. He wouldn't stop and eat breakfast because he was reading. HE WAS READING! It worked!!!

I'm very grateful to the person who first told me to try this series. It grab's a child's interest and holds on so they keep turning those pages. If you are in the same boat that we just got out of with a boy who won't read, consider trying this book!

I bought this book at a scholastic book fair for my then 8 year old daughter and she really enjoyed the book. She had been requesting the rest of the series once she found out there were more books. I bought my nine year old daughter the full series and she loves the books. She has read them all two to three times and shares them with her classmates as they take turns taking them home to read. She talks about the events all the time and how amazing it is that the people survived and has intrigued her interest more with the types of natural disasters that occur and incidents of mass casualty such as the sinking of the Titanic. Great books.

I have a fourth grader who absolutely REFUSES to read but he's gotten hooked on this series and begged me to buy him the whole set for Christmas. I have another fourth grader and sixth grader who also enjoy them, but it's the non-reader that got my attention. Anything that interests him is worth it in my book! Typically, he sets a timer after school to keep track of how long he's supposed to "read" (although much of that time is spent staring out the window or checking the timer to see what's left). When he started these books, suddenly, he would keep reading past his timer and tell me he couldn't stop till he found out what happened. I think they're supposed to be second - third grade books but several of my boys love them.
