14th April Titanic Hits Iceberg 1912

I find it hard to believe how interested children are in the Titanic. They don't seem that keen about other aspects of history. Is it because it was a disaster? Whatever the reason, there was a time when books about the Titanic were the most borrowed books in the library. Year 2 boys would be squabbling over who was having which book next. They are not the most borrowed at the moment, but some of them are still very popular and we have at least ten different titles. Among the more popular books are:
Story of the Titanic by Steve Noon
The Story of the Titanic by Deborah Heiligman
Titanic by Anna Claybourne & Katie Daynes
Survivors; The Night the Titanic Sank by Caryn Jenner
Polar the Titanic Bear by Daisy Corning Stone Spedden, and
Tonight on the Titanic Mary Pope Osborne
