I’m a winner! “Explore Titanic” Contest at


Guess what?

I won a copy of Explore Titanic: Breathtaking New Pictures, Recreated with Digital Technology by Peter Chrisp on the Kleinspiration “Explore Titanic” website  page. This fabulous website was created by educator Erin Klein.

Mrs. Klein showcased her 7th grade students’ Titanic projects in an April 2011 post with a terrific video!

I’m excited to be one of the three lucky winners of this fabulous book!

As per the publisher’s info on Amazon:

“Boys and girls will be enthralled by this dramatic pictorial history of the great ocean liner R.M.S. Titanic, and its fateful sinking in the North Atlantic.

“Approximately 125 photos and illustrations in color and black and white–including 12 astonishing 3D-rendered graphics–tell the Titanic’s story, from its 1911 launching at the Belfast shipyard to its tragic destruction on April 15, 1912 during its maiden Atlantic crossing.

“Young readers will see faithful reproductions of both exterior and interior ship’s details, from the Boiler Room and Engine Room far below decks to the luxury passengers’ cabins and the ship’s grand ballroom. Among the 3D-rendered artworks are two remarkable double-gatefold illustrations–

  • “The Titanic under steam
  • “A cutaway diagram of the ship”

I’ll be putting up a complete review of Explore Titanic in the future.

Look for it here on my Titanic blog!
