    "Powerful! Features RMS Titanic survivors' voices!"

    I don't know whether this audiobook has a printed equivalent, but this very brief (36 minute) audiobook is well worthwhile for RMS Titanic buffs and for classroom use. It tells the story in what are reportedly the recorded voices of various survivors including 2nd Officer Charles Herbert Lightoller, the highest ranking officer to survive the sinking of the RMS Titanic. I purchased this to supplement a thematic unit on the RMS Titanic with my 4th Grade elementary school class. It kept my students' attention from start to finish. Since it's so concise, I wouldn't use this as the very first account of the disaster, but it's a great followup.

    The music adds to the mood but makes the introduction a bit hard to hear. After that it balances out.

    For those wanting a more thorough account of the RMS Titanic disaster, I'd recommend Walter Lord's "A Night to Remember" (unabridged) as well as "The Titanic: Disaster of the Century" by Wyn Craig Wade. Also, for historical fiction, George Korman's "Titanic Trilogy" is excellent for classroom use for 4th grade through 9th grade. (It's written at approximately a 6th grade reading level but is high-interest). I'm using it for Guided Reading for three groups in my classroom using the print version (available through Scholastic or Amazon) along with the unabridged audio from Audible.com.

    Since the Audible.com member price for "The Titanic Story" by David Moore is less than $4.00, as of 04-15-2012, I'd recommend buying the book as an additional purchase and not using a membership credit to purchase it. Simply uncheck the "credit box" on checkout and then select "update." It's also available on Amazon.com as an mp3 download.

    Enjoy. Daniel W, 4th Grade Teacher, Taos, NM
