"I Survived: The Sinking of the Titanic, 1912" by Lauren Tarshis
Ten-year-old George Calder can't believe his luck — he and his littler sister, Phoebe, are on the famous Titanic, crossing the ocean with exciting places to explore, but when George ventures into the first class storage cabin, a terrible boom shakes the entire boat. Suddenly, water is everywhere, and George's life changes forever.
*Here are the following pages that you will receive with your kit!*
