On May 31, 1911, thousands of excited people crammed into a shipyard in Belfast, Northern Ireland. They were there to watch the empty hull of RMS Titanic enter the water for the very first time. Proud workers hugged their children as they pointed at the massive ship they had helped build. In just 62 seconds, the giant ocean liner was floating for the very first time. It was the largest human-made object the world had ever seen! Creating Titanic: The Ship of Dreams tells the compelling story of how the largest and most luxurious ship in the world was built and the workers who risked their lives in the process. The fascinating content and large-format color images, maps, and fact boxes bring the Titanic's tragic story to life. Creating Titanic: The Ship of Dreams is part of Bearport's Titanica series.

School Library Journal Review of Titanica

Young Titanic fans will reach for these six volumes that cover almost every facet of the ship and its sinking. In Last Hours, for example, several diagrams and cutaways illuminate the various inner workings and levels of the boat and how exactly the iceberg damaged the vessel. Kids will learn of the ship’s construction, the passengers (many of whom were rich and famous), the fatal collision, and even related ghosts and mysterious hauntings. In all of the books, the language is clear, and there are ample brightly colored drawings and photographs to complement the text. VERDICT: A well-crafted presentation of a timeless topic. Expect a high demand from Titanic aficionados.
