Titanic: Disaster at Sea: Scholastic Discover More Reader Level 3

We rated this book:


Titanic: Disaster at Sea is the newest addition to Scholastic’s Discover More series, “a revolutionary new nonfiction line pairing stunning print books with corresponding interactive digital books that extend the learning online.” And true to Scholastic’s webpage description, each eye-appealing page is stunning! Replete with archival and wreckage photographs, timelines, and interesting factual tidbits, Callery’s retelling of Titanic’s maiden voyage comes to life with the added personal touch of eyewitness accounts of survivor Eva Hart, who was only seven years of age when she saw the “ship of dreams” disappear into the ocean depths.

Designed for independent readers, Titanic: Disaster at Sea not only features “New Word” text boxes that includes both phonetic pronunciations and definitions of difficult words, but also encourages readers to reinforce their vocabulary by saying these words aloud. The real icing on the cake, though, is the educational activities — complete with games, videos, and fun quizzes to test reader’s knowledge — that can only be downloaded from a link on Scholastic’s website through a special code, which is unique to each purchased book. This nonfiction book with its activity component makes it an indisputably stimulating and educational read for 1st through 3rd graders.
