Find out about some of the people — both passengers and crew — who sailed on the Titanic's first and only voyage, and learn the tragic story of the doomed ship! This is a simple recounting of the Titanic's tragic story. The text describes the chronology of events, and discusses the investigation that followed the disaster. The final pages discuss Robert Ballard's discovery and exploration of the wreck of the Titanic. Sidebars introduce real people who were aboard the Titanic, including the captain, who went down with his ship. The Scholastic History Readers series was created especially for kids in grades 2 and 3, ages 7 and 8, who are comfortable reading alone. Clearly leveled texts have been formulated by a reading specialist to match developing skills. These reader-friendly books are illustrated with outstanding photographs that help to make history real. Each book has been checked by an expert for historical accuracy, and each includes a chronology, glossary, and index.
