I know that this book is for grades younger than I will be teaching, but since I am going to probably be teaching students who are several grades behind in history, I figured that having an idea of what children's books on the subject of the "Titanic" were out there and how knowledgeable they were.

This series about historical events, science themes, and famous people is just right for that 9 year old boy who isn't interested in books. Reluctant readers don't like fiction. They like true stuff, scary stuff, or weird stuff with lots of pictures. This slim volume - with the heft and look of a magazine crossed with a comic book - has just enough punch to keep a fidgety child reading until the end. Buy a bunch of them by Peter Benoit.
This is an informational book for children about the sinking of the Titanic with many interesting facts and details.
