My 7 yr old grandson is really into the Titanic. He loves the separate picture that unfolds to show details of everything location on the ship. Was VERY EXCITED to receive it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
my son couldn't stop reading this book
My son is 8 years old and a very picky reader. Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Spiderwick are the only books he's gotten into but he picked this book up and wouldn't set it down. Be prepared, my son wanted to share all the things he learned so don't expect to get any reading done while your child is enjoying this book. We went on to purchase Cars and Universe from the EyeWitness series as well. Both were read with almost equal enthusiasm.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Pair with hands-on activity to encourage recreational reading
I purchased this book for my nephew last month for his twelfth birthday, coupled with a model of the Titanic from a local craft and hobby store. The charts in the book were excellently detailed and provided colorful information about the parts of ship he was assembling on his model. My hope is that this was a fun and low-pressure reading experience for him and that he gained valuable knowledge along the way!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

There are a number of DK Publishing books that can be paired with experiential learning activities. A few years ago I purchased an Eyewitness cowboy book and coupled it with a cowboy puzzle, and also a DK dinosaur book and paired it with a dinosaur diorama kit.
