This book is based off the true story of Ruth Becker's voyage on the Titanic and how her family was able to survive, escaping on the lifeboats. I am doing a unit on the Titanic with my 4th graders right now and used this picture book today and you could have heard a pin drop when I was reading it. Great introductory book to this fascinating topic. Be sure to read the Afterword which mentions how Ruth never even talked about being on the Titanic until 1982. Her own children didn't even know until then that she was a passenger!
