This story is about a boat that sank. One day, a new boat sailed from England to America. It was called the Titanic. People said the Titanic was the safest boat. One night, they saw an iceberg. They tried to turn the boat, but it was too late. The boat started to sink. Some people who jumped into the water survived, but more than 2,000 people died because the boat didn't have enough lifeboats.

My favorite part is when the boat sank because I know how boats sink and how scary it is. The Titanic is my favorite character because it is a new boat. This story relates to my life because safety needs to come first.

The pictures help tell the story. I think you should read this book because it shows that not all boats are safe.
