So your child wants to learn about the Titanic....

I recently assisted a mom who was in search of Titanic books for her seven year old son. This mom also chose some adult historical reference books, those with a lot of photos.  Apparently this young man is well-versed in all things Titanic and has been watching the National Geographic specials in addition to his extensive reading.

Since the school library had a very limited selection, she decided to select some reference books from her local bookstore to supplement it.  Here are some that we considered:

SOS! Titanic
by Freda Wishinsky
ISBN 9781897349786
(suitable for children ages 6-8)

Eyewitness Titanic
by Simon Adams
ISBN 9780756650360
(ages 9-12)

882 1/2 Amazing Answers to Your Questions About the Titanic

(Ages 9-12)

T is for Titanic:  A Titanic Alphabet
