Meet some of the people--both passengers and crew-- who sailed on the Titanic. The Scholastic History Readers series was created especially to bring history to life for beginning readers.
This is a simple recounting of the Titanic's tragic story. The text describes the chronology of events, and discusses the investigation that followed the disaster. The final pages discuss Robert Ballard's discovery and exploration of the wreck of the Titanic.
Sidebars introduce real people who were aboard the Titanic, including the captain, who went down with his ship.

Grade 2-4-This easy-to-read chapter book takes readers back to April, 1912, when the Titanic set out on its first voyage. Sherrow discusses the vessel itself, its passengers, and Captain Edward J. Smith, and tells why and how the steamship sank. Stories of survival and descriptions of the resulting maritime laws are included, along with information about the discovery of the wreckage and the role of scientist Dr. Robert Ballard in that endeavor. The black-and-white and color illustrations on every spread include a painting of the ship sinking and a reproduction of the front page of the New York Times announcing the tragedy. With its lively text, well-organized chapters, and outstanding photographs, this book is a welcome addition.
