This book was an amazing book and I loved it so much it was very interesting and it was also a very important story I think people need to know

Title, author, genre: I survived the sinking of the titanic,1912, author Lauren Tarshis, genre historical fiction. I chose rating 2 because. This book did not have a lot of sentences and words. But it had a lot of pages. I learned that everything is possible in life. I notice that everything is possible because the boy on the Titanic didn't give up but swimmed to the boat. Interestingly I learned that on that point the Titanic was the biggest moving thing in the world. I would recommend this book to 2-4 grade students because it’s not very hard to read.

The book I Survived The Sinking Of The Titanic by Lauren Tarshis is a wonderful book. I would really recommend you reading this book if you like adventures. This book is about a boy named George Calder who was heading back to America after his visit to London. His aunt and little sister were on the Titanic. It was their fifth day at sea and then a few days later the Titanic started to sink. What do you think will happen to George? Will he survive? Read more to find out.
