My 9-year old loves this series. Great way to get kids interested in science fiction and teach them some history at the same time.

Back to the Titanic is the first of the three books in Beatrice Gormley's highly underrated Travelers Through Time series. All three books were available through school book orders when they were first published in paperback.

In each of the books, three children go back in time using a time machine and try to change the course of history for the better. In this book, the kids go back to the Titanic on its maiden voyage and try first to prevent the ship from hitting the infamous iceberg. However, everyone they try to warn about the possibility of icebergs just "poo-poos" the warnings, thinking that they know better, and of course, that the Titanic is unsinkable. This mirrors what actually happened aboard the Titanic when iceberg reports were totally ignored and even after the ship hit the iceberg, few seemed to be worried that the ship was in any danger. When the kids are unable to prevent the collision, they then turn their attention to convincing crew and passengers that the ship is actually going to sink and that the lifeboats should be filled to capacity. But, of course, being a well-written time travel book, the children realize they can't let on to anyone that they're from the future, so they have to find more subtle ways of warning people, such as asking pointed questions. The kids have a decent, but realistic, knowledge of history for their ages, which helps them know some of the questions to ask.

The kids do NOT end up changing the basic course of history - the Titanic still sinks with most of the passengers going to their watery graves. However, they do manage to help save a young passenger who turns out to be one of their ancestors.

I liked this books for many reasons. Gormley's writing is engaging, and she does not underestimate her young characters or readers. I've always loved time travel books, especially when they include real history. I've been fascinated by the Titanic and its demise since long before the 1997 movie. And I love the concept in this book that some of history is quite inevitable - that no matter how much someone tries to intervene and help prevent bad situations / disasters, there are often ignorant people who just don't want to be confused by the facts (we all know the type). They know everything and are arrogant about anyone trying to tell them differently. This is a great concept I try to get across to my fourth graders - we tend to want to see history only from our own egocentric / ethnocentric viewpoints, when history really needs also to be seen through the context of those who lived it, a very tough lesson to get across in our era of revisionist history.

The other two books in the series are #2 / Back to Paul Revere! and #3 / Back to the Day Lincoln was Shot!. Both are recommended reads, though I enjoyed the third book more than the second.

Though I have rated this book 5 out of 5 stars, using the Amazon rating system, my own system of rating would be 9 on a scale of 1 to 10 (since Amazon does not allow half stars - i.e., 4 1/2 out of 5).

The cover is very eye-catching and draws you over to it. This story is well put together and leaves you guessing. The book gives you a lot of information about Titanic and her passengers, it makes you feel your there with the characters. I have read this book lots of times and it seems to get better every time. My favorite part was at the end where they said that they wouldn't go back to the Titanic but it didn't mean that they wouldn't use the time machine again. I couldn't put this book down and encourage other people to read it.

This book was one of my first exposures to the Titanic disaster. I read this book as kid, probably age 7 or 8. I was enthralled by the time-travel aspect of it all, and I can still remember how much history I learned just by reading a fiction book. The story itself is so good that it could viably be made into a feature-length film with little hassle in converting the story into a screenplay. I reccommend this book for kids interested in time-travel, the Titanic, history, science/historical fiction, or a simple good book.

When Matt and his friends discover his grandpas time machine and what it can do they go back to the titanic. This hair raising tail is perfect for the family. Though little kids might not understand it its educational. It show were every thing was on the titanic and what happend when it went down. It also has a very awesome ending. So read it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
