This nonfiction book would be a very good read and is accurate in its information. Its purpose is also good and is an important aspect of history we shouldn't forget. However, the level of difficulty is fairly high for kids in fifth grade or below and I'm not sure this would be the best book to describe the tragedy!

I think this book is interesting and appealing with the pictures and information but would be hard for kids to read at a low age level! Good introductory book for kids in higher classes though! I know I would still find this enjoyable and interesting!

A ship of dreams, a floating city; Titanic took its dreams to the ocean floor 106 years ago.

In honor of today being the 105th anniversary of the day the Titanic fatally struck the iceberg, here is my shelf devoted to the ill-fated liner. If you couldn't tell I'm a bit of a #Titanicnerd. I've been fascinated by the ship since before even the movie came out. #Titanic #April141912

Cinfhen It is an incredibly interesting piece of history! Nice #shelfie 3y
