Today I’m excited to show you some new books from the lovely people at Barrington Stoke who publish amazing books for children and teens!  Today’s selection is all for kids of different ages and all of these books are all aimed at dyslexic or reluctant readers due to them being especially short, and easy to read.  Even so, these books can be appreciated and enjoyed by anyone, so let’s take a look at the wonderful books I received this time! 😀 …

Tragedy At Sea: The Sinking of the Titanic by David Long & Stefano TambelliniOn 10 April 1912, RMS Titanic set sail from Southampton on her maiden voyage to New York. This “Ship of Dreams” was the largest and most luxurious ocean liner in the world. It was claimed she was unsinkable. But four days later, when the ship struck an iceberg, the loss of Titanic and over 1,500 passengers would become one of the most infamous maritime disasters in history.
In this fact-filled retelling of its construction and doomed maiden voyage, David Long brings Titanic’s tragic tale to life.
