It's likely that most students have already heard the story of the sinking of the Titanic,but there's much more to it than just the night of April 14, 1912, and the Titanic Perspectives series sets out to fill in more details about the ill-fated steamship. With full-color pages packed with photos, diagrams, and inset boxes, each book in the series offers a wealth of information in straightforward sentences and a dynamic layout tailor-made for browsers. For many decades, explorers searched for the wreck of the Titanic, but ocean currents and inaccurate coordinates made it difficult to find. The Search for the Titanic profiles a few failed attempts to locate the wreck before detailing Robert Ballard's successful mission in 1985, as well as the manned and unmanned submersibles his crew used to explore the remains of the ship. While the order of information presented can be somewhat confusing, the unique perspectives and sheer volume of facts are a major plus. Kiddos eager to learn everything they can about the Titanic will finds lots to ponder here.
