I read this in school and the pictures were amaising we were spostr to swich out books like eveatry two to three weeks but i kept it longer on pouprous it is great for any age of kids and adults it is such a afotable book
The story was very entertaining and that it was based on fact made it even more special.
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'.) 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!
