Yes. Get this book!

The I Survived books have my 9 (almost 10) year old reading! He hated books. Well, he hated reading. Like, HATED. but he picked up an I survived book at our local book fair and read it. ALL of it. Then he asked for more of those. He wants to read all of them! I got him the Titanic one and he read it in ONE day. I can't say enough about them not only did they get him to find a love for reading, but for history, and true stories.
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.
