Search for the Titanic, The; Finding the Ship’s Watery Grave

Reviewed by:

‘After Titanic sank in 1912, adventurers dreamed of discovering its last resting place. Seventy-three years later, this dream was finally realized.’
This third book in a series of four about Titanic Perspectives, will intrigue young treasure hunters and historians. Readers will learn how the Titanic vanished beneath the sea and attempts to discover this watery graveyard.
This book reads more like a newsreel or scrapbook brought to life on paper.  Historical photographs, bulleted facts, varied text, diagrams, definitions on each page, and artifacts are used to foster the authenticity and accuracy of this tragedy.  The varying levels of text and brief text allow reluctant readers or English language learners to access this book  though anyone will find it fascinating.  A table of contents, glossary, book suggestions, critical thinking using the Common Core skills from US curriculum and internet sites encourage readers to do further investigation of this topic.  As this topic never loses its appeal, it will be a welcome addition to any school library collection.
