He likes to imagine and make things personal, so he connects with the realness of these books, even though they are not "true stories". H has even learned so much! The Children's Blizzard one was his first one, and he came to me with knowledge and understanding.
This one, the Sinking of the Titanic, held his interest so much that days later he is still telling me about it and finding ways to learn more about that historical event and ship. These books are a MUST for any child's library.
So, in conclusion, if you have a kid that is into history, this is probably a great book (and series) for them. However, if that kid frightens easily or is prone to nightmares, it might be worth reading it together.
Since my son had recently shown interest in the Titanic after watching a documentary, I bought this book used off Amazon just to see if it would spark his interest. It arrived in the mail and he was happy when I told him the package was for him. He opened it and was curious. He actually read a page.
Now, I'll be honest. The book sat for months untouched. Then one day he decided to look at it again, all on his own. He read a few more pages. Next thing we knew he was refusing to turn off his light and go to sleep because he was reading. He was ignoring my requests for him to put away his laundry because he was reading. He wouldn't stop and eat breakfast because he was reading. HE WAS READING! It worked!!!
I'm very grateful to the person who first told me to try this series. It grab's a child's interest and holds on so they keep turning those pages. If you are in the same boat that we just got out of with a boy who won't read, consider trying this book!
