4 posts | 4 read | 3 to read
Young Jim Mulholland can't believe his good luck: He has signed on as a cabin boy to the world's finest ocean liner, the Titanic, and can't wait for the history-making voyage across the sea to America. As part of his duties Jim is in charge of the ship's cat, a beautiful tortoiseshell that also appears happy to be on board. He calls the cat by the ship's construction number, 4-0-1, certain that she will bring him good luck. And he's delighted when 4-0-1 shortly gives birth to a litter of kittens. But once the ship's trial runs are completed and it's ready to launch to sea, Jim notices that 4-0-1 is nowhere to be found. He's got to find her-the Titanic can't cast off without her lucky cat. Jim is faced with a decision that will affect the rest of his life.A newspaper journalist for 30 years, Marty Crisp often writes about the animals that hold a special interest and place in her heart.

Titanicat (HF) by Marty Crisp is the cutest story of a cat and a little boy. I think children would really enjoy this book because of the connection between the cat and the boy and they will also learn a little about the Titanic. I would have children read this independently. The UDL guideline I would use is 3.1 and the ESOL strategy I would use is 29 to offer more information about the Titanic.

kgarzon This sounds like a great book to gently introduce the topic of the Titanic! 3w
AlyssaB Aww this book sounds so cute and awesome! 3w
Shannyblake The cover of this book grabbed my attention! I love cats. Your UDL and ESOL strategies align well :) 3w

It's good luck for a ship to carry aboard a feline luck charm. Well that's what Jim believes, as he's set to work as a cabin boy for the "Unsinkable Titanic" and befriends the ships cat. Cats can also symbolize bad luck or oncoming danger. What will Jim believe in the end in this historical fiction piece. Here's some more superstitions about cats to go along with a discussion: https://user.xmission.com/~emailbox/folklore.htm #ucflae3414sp17 #cats

DrSpalding As a side note, there are interesting stories about the animals that were on board! Some survived! http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-2128731/Women-PETS-There-menagerie-ani... 3y

Betty @Suzze this Titanicat obviously is Tink's ancestor, which means she/he survived! 3y
