  So many years have gone by since the Titanic sank on that fateful night on April 14th, 1912. It is hard for people today to imagine what the ship and her passengers were like. This kit will help readers to appreciate how special the Titanic was and why so many people thought that she was unsinkable. She was so large, so modern, and so grand. Surely, such a ship could withstand anything. Alas, she did not.

  In this interactive kit, readers can look at copies of a first-class ticket and the April 14th dinner menu. There is also a description of some of the people who were on board the Titanic on that dreadful night. Some of them lived to tell the tale, and some did not. In addition, there is a large pop-up of the complete ship, and six smaller pop-ups that show a few of the rooms and public spaces in the ship. To tie all these elements together, there is a book in which the story of the ship and her sinking is told. Maps, diagrams, illustrations, and period photographs accompany the gripping story.

  This kit would make a great gift for anyone who has an interest in the Titanic.
