Review

This book chronicles the night the Titanic sank after hitting an iceberg. After a little bit of background on the ship, how it was made, and who were the passengers, the story begins when the iceberg is first spotted. The story is told using actual real life accounts by the survivors. This book is vague about why the third class passengers were kept below. While it says nothing inaccurate, it does nothing to counterbalance common misconceptions in that area. However, the story is complemented by the watercolor illustrations that can help readers picture the action. Teachers and librarians can use this book to complement other stories about the Titanic as well as other shipwrecks. Recommended. Reviewed by Kathryn I. Krizo, Centennial Library Intern
