Show Me How to Survive
We want kids to read, so we move mountains (of books) looking for any title that will cause a reluctant reader to crack open a book. Show Me How to Survive is one such title. Not necessarily because your child will need to know how to disarm a shooter, survive a shipwreck, or rescue-breathe for a dog, but because its hundreds of illustrations and sparse text is an irresistible mix for readers and non-readers alike. Colorful, insightful, and maybe just a bit quirky, this visual guide demystifies 175 events, everything from the essential to the unusual, each explained in nearly wordless, step-by-step illustrations. As the author states, “...this book is not intended to replace professional advice or training," but as a bold new visual guidebook, Show Me How to Survive is one of the best and will be useful for reading, story-telling, and even pretend play.

Note: Show Me How to Survive is a secular title, so you will want to hit it with a touch of white-out before you hand it off to your child, particularly a few of the items suggested for the emergency preparedness kit on page 5.

Fun book!

This book is loaded with a lot of interesting and intriguing information and tips. Our boys (10 and 12) love reading through it!

Great for boy scouts

This is a fun book for my 12 year old son. It has a lot of useless lessons and teaches important life skills.

Learning to love reading...

My 7yo eats this book up! He sat looking through it for hours! Helpful, fun reading practice over summer break.

Loved it!

We did a unit study on survival skills and this book was perfect!

We enjoyed this so much!

We read this as a family and thoroughly enjoyed it! There were lots of laughs along the way as the illustrations can be pretty comical but we also learned some great little survival tips!
