Review: Eyewitness to Titanic


Eyewitness to Titanic
Eyewitness to Titanic by Terri Dougherty

My rating: 4 of 5 stars



Description:

View the story of the doomed ship Titanic through the eyes of those who knew it best. Builders, crew members, passengers, and explorers who discovered the wreck each have their own perspectives. Feel the pride of builders as they put the final touches on the grand staircase and the deep sadness of survivors who left loved ones behind. It’s the story of the Titanic like you have never heard it before.

For ages 10-13.

*Includes primary sources, including quotes from those who survived Titanic's sinking and primary-source images (Common Core link)

*Packed with infographics, including tables, charts, bulleted list, and graphs

*Explores the Titanic from the different perspectives and insights of those involved with the ship - the builders, crew members, passengers, and those who searched for the ship all had different experiences (less)


Review:

The photos and information in Eye Witness to Titanic were a great resource for factual information about the Titanic. My 4th grade son spent a few months learning about, and reading various books about the Titanic and it's disasteriois end in his class at school. The children were required to read a few different books, and hopefully, in the future this book can be used as a good source of information.

The information was presented in an easy to follow manner that leant greater understanding to the Titanic. I recommend this book for children and adults who wish to become more knowledgeable about what made the building and sinking of this ship and it's passengers so memorable. I was given this book free of charge to provide an honest review of.
