This is the first book in the "Travelers Through Time" series for intermediate/middle grade children.

Much nostalgia from my childhood. I like all the actual historical stuff. Also nostalgia Bit weird how Johnathan knows so much about time travel theory though.

I love reading about the titanic so this book was interesting. A group of kids fin their grand fathers invention of time travelling. In the beginnging of the book is shows the massive ship and describes the parts of the ship. It is informational and if I were to teach a lessons over the ship this would be a fun book to have my students read. Not only is in informational it is imaginative and will keep the children's attention.
This was pretty sad, but it was good. It was a very quick read, and I didn't exactly get hooked on the series, but it was pretty exciting and it kept me reading.
Loved this when I was younger. I went through a time when I was obsessed with everything Titanic, and this is a product of that. Cute though.
Very very interesting and entertaining - I got to see how many things went wrong with the Titanic when it sunk

This book was boring

I found that all it was about was a time machine and not about the titanic
