Child Researcher

When I was a kid, my mom got us books on anything we were interested in. As I'm sure you can tell by now, Titanic was one of the subjects my siblings and I found fascinating. These are three of the many books we have collected over the years. Much of my Titanic "research" has been done through re-reading my childhood books.

On Board The Titanic by Shelley Tanaka

I'm so glad my mom encouraged us to seek out books on unique topics. I still think reading is one of the most valuable ways for children to gather information. We can allow children to connect to the past by introducing them to historical information in books like these.
