The 102nd Anniversary of the Sinking of the TITANIC

One hundred and two years ago today, the “unsinkable” Titanic met its end in the icy waters of the north Atlantic. The tragedy has been studied and reimagined numerous times in the years since. Check out our list below for your fill of history, adventure, and more related to this fascinating and sad story.

First is I Survived the Sinking of the Titanic, 1912. In this fast-paced historical fiction, ten-year-old George finds himself on the trip of a lifetime crossing the Atlantic with his aunt and his little sister. When disasters strikes, George finds that his knack for getting out of trouble might only carry him so far.…


Next is Gordon Korman’s Titanic trilogy. If a ship heading steadily on a collision course with disaster isn’t enough tension for you, these books also feature a nail-biting on-board mystery! Sophie, Paddy, Juliana, and Alfie must unmask a killer before time runs out. Plus, the three covers combine to make an awesome picture of the ship!


For some real-life remembrance, Titanic: Voices from the Disaster offers amazing true stories from survivors. In addition to testaments from passengers and crew, this book also features amazing facts, photos, diagrams, and more.

Finally, for those creative-minded history buffs, take a look at the Titanic Press-Out Model kit. With easy-to-follow instructions and all the pieces you need to make your own two-foot-long model, you’ll be a ship-building expert in no time!
