Great Book for Reading to Children!
I happened to find this book first in the library one day when I was looking for a book to read at the elementary schools during Reading Week! It jumped out at me because of the beautiful cover picture. (And also because I have a cat that looks just like '401'.)Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

First - this book helps teach young students about a true live event, the sinking of the Titanic! I'm still not sure if the part about the cat is true, but it makes for interesting discussion. It was very appropriate for k thru 5th grades. They all loved it!
Second - it is just the right length to read during a 20-30 minute class and still have discussion time.
Third - the pictures are BEAUTIFUL! It is easy to read while holding up so the students can see the pictures --- BUT... after reading this to approximately 6 different groups, I noticed something..... the story is about a cat and 3 kittens.... near the end of the book, the picture shows 4 very DIFFERENT kittens in the sack! Hate to give that away about the story, but the kids just loved discussing this and learning to read and watch 'very closely' to stories and books.
I LOVE this book - and now need to buy a copy to have on hand each time I am asked to read!
