Reading Level: Reluctant readers
Part of a brand new series from Scholastic, Survivor: Titanic tells the story of a young boy aboard the fated Titanic. This gripping first-hand account is perfect for children studying the Titanic at school.
It is rare that an author manages to cram in so much information and knowledge into a story without weighing it down but Survivor: Titanic proceeds at a breakneck pace. If the aim of the Scholastic series is to teach the history curriculum in an exciting and thrilling manner, then they have certainly succeeded with this first release.
