Children's Books about Titanic

Recently, I found there have been quite a few new books about Titanic for kids that have been published, or will be published in the very near future. 

April, 1912, front page of the New York Herald,
on the Sinking of RMS Titanic
Why books about Titanic for kids?   With the century mark of one of the world's great sea tragedies being marked this year, evryone is interested in learning more about the sinking of the Titanic, and that includes kids.  It's nice to know that there are materials available on age appropriate levels to satisfy children's curiosity, too.

I've written up a little article with some tidbits of information about the children who were aboard the great ocean liner on her ill-fated maiden voyage in 1912, and listed some of the books about Titanic for kids.  If you have a child who is curious about the ship, the people who sailed on her, or the events surrounding her sinking, please pay a visit to the article.  There's nothing like a good book about something a kid is fascinated about to get them reading, and that's always a good thing!
