In the Dorling Kindersley "level two" readers, the sentences are longer and the vocabulary is more challenging. The information boxes are full of extra fun facts and there is a simple index in each book.
The beautiful illustrations and full-color photographs make this story come to life. This story focuses on one family who sets sail for America aboard the Titanic. The story starts as an adventure and ends in tragedy, yet the father is united with this family. I think that was a wise choice and the author was very aware of the fear children have of loosing a parent.
There is safety information in this book which explains how the disaster did help prevent deaths in the future. Now all ships carry enough lifeboats for everyone on board.
