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.
