"Students all around the world will benefit from reading multiple perspectives from the dear people of the Titanic. Mary's excitement for history and literature dazzles each word and leaves the reader with a true picture of this tragic day.

“As a school librarian, I have heard on more than one occasion, ‘Where are the books on the Titanic?’ Unfortunately, the ones we have simply aren't that engaging for young readers. That is until now. At last, here is a well-written, informative book about the passengers on the Titanic specifically for elementary school students. I can confidently recommend and hand it to students knowing they’ll be hooked hearing about the ship’s maiden voyage from those who were there—from the captain and crew to the first, second, and third class passengers. All the Voices of the Titanic are heard in Montero’s engaging book.”—Mike Rawls, librarian

“Mary Montero has written an enthralling book that brings the Titanic's diverse passengers and crew up from the depths of history and sets them sailing through your imagination. This is the kind of history book that kids, parents, AND teachers love.”—Luke Rosa, teacher and curriculum writer
