" not sure whether to laugh or cry when I read this. c is for capitalizing on the unfortunate deaths of other human beings...s is for shills...f is for...nevermind. " said.

" It's pretty good. It was very free to say that this person died and that person died. " said.

" Informative with some impressive illustrations. " said.

" Another in the Sleeping Bear Press alphabet series. Very interesting. Learned a lot I didn't know about the ship and the fateful maiden voyage. " said.

" I love alphabet books, and have a small personal collection. I also love the Sleeping Bear Alphabets for their extraordinary artwork and the variety of facts and explanations. An index would increase the value of the book for research. " said.

" This is a really interesting books containing some of the lessor known facts about the Titanic and its passengers. The format, while not terribly useful for research or school reports, is fun because the reader never knows what he or she will learn next. This will be a nice addition to my elementary school library. " said.

Twin Text: Titanicat By Marty Crisp

This nonfiction book went through the alphabet, and for each letter, it gave an interesting fact about the Titanic. The book teaches about the Anatomy of the ships, the Bridge where the steering was done, the Children on the ship, and many other interesting facts about the Titanic itself or the historical recounting of the ship's sinking. I chose Titanicat to pair with this book as a fiction selection. If the student loved learning about the Titanic, they may love this fictional story about a young cabin boy who was supposed to be on board the Titanic but misses the sailing and later found out how lucky he was to miss the departure. They both take place on the Titanic and include historical information, however, T is for Titanic is a nonfiction story while Titanicat is fiction. It would be a fun pair to read together, pointing out which information in Titanicat was historically accurate when compared to the nonfiction story.

"I haven't yet found one of these Sleeping Bear Press alphabet books that I really like, and this one is no exception. The verse is awkward on the tongue, and the rhythm seems a bit simple compared to the seriousness of the content.
One challenge in this particular volume is presenting information chronologically as well as alphabetically. I think the author was mostly successful in this. I don't think the lack of chronology is a problem for readers since most of those who will pick up this version of the event are probably quite well-informed of the tragedy.
There were several mentions of details that would have been better explained with a photograph. For some non-fiction books, illustrations rather than photos can be an asset if the author is trying to detail something specific. Illustrations don't work so well with this topic. Most of my readers want very specific, detailed charts, and love pouring over cut-aways.
Even though most of the information is generally well known, I would also like to have some sources included to support the obscure, unusual facts given.
