Brown, Don All Stations! Distress! Roaring Brook, 2008. PICTURE BOOK. The fateful journey of the Titanic captures our attention, even after all of these years. This simple picture book tells the story of the tragedy simply, without exaggeration or sensation, in a language that young children could hear, understand and appreciate. The 100th anniversary of the sinking is fast approaching, and this would be a good retelling to have on hand. EL – OPTIONAL. Cindy, Library-Teacher.
