Third graders, Olivia and Beatrix, mailing letters to a 92 year old, Caroline. Aiken in Springfield Vermont. The girls had just finished reading White Star: A Dog on the Titanic by Marty Crisp. The girls reported on what they learned about the Titanic and asked Caroline about what her childhood was like during that era. The story is about a 12 year old boy Sam Harris who befriends a dog, Star, a spunky Irish setter that belongs to the ship's captain. When disaster strikes Sam and Star rely on each other more than ever. They really enjoyed learning about what it must have been like to be aboard the Titanic. We look forward to receiving letters from our pen-pal in Vermont!
