This illustrated alphabet book will bring out the Titanic enthusiast in every child.

What better way to teach to children the popular lore of the Titanic than through a children’s book? Alexandra Besitka did just that with her alphabet book “Titanabet” (Page Publishing; 2017).
Even though they are still too young to watch the 1997 film, it is never too early to know how one of the worst maritime disasters in history unfolded. Besitka was in third grade when she first heard about the “unsinkable” RMS Titanic and the tragedy that took place in 1912. It was only after watching the National Geographic documentary “Secrets of the Titanic” that she became mesmerized with the story and immediately developed not only a passion for the Titanic but also a dream inspired by it.
The aptly titled “Titanabet” (a portmanteau of ‘Titanic” and ‘alphabet’) enables children to learn a thing or two about the legendary ship and, at the same time, learn the letters of the alphabet. “I want to introduce the Titanic in a simple and easy way,” said Besitka. “Alphabet books are a good way to keep things simple and fun.”
The letters represent words that are somehow related to the Titanic, complete with a sentence and picture. Like the letter Z for ‘zero’: “There will be zero remnants of her, but Titanic’s legacy will never be forgotten.”
The inspiration that drove Besitka to write the book and its subsequent publication attest to the fact that even after a century later, interest in the Titanic remains unsinkable. People, young and old, are still fascinated.
Get a copy of Alexandra Besitka’s “Titanabet” and be fascinated anew by the lore of the Titanic. Visit Amazon ( and Barnes & Noble (
Watch out for the public display of the book at the upcoming Miami Book Fair on November 11 to 18, 2018 at Miami Dade College.
