This is the first book in the "Travelers Through Time" series for intermediate/middle grade children. Using their grandfather's time travel machine (TASC-Time And Space Connector), Matt, Emily, and Jonathan travel back in time to April 14, 1912 to see if they can save the Titanic from hitting the iceberg and sinking.

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.

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.
