"From preparing to survive in the great outdoors, to discovering street-smart secrets, this picture-packed toolkit is an engaging must-read for adventure-minded 7+-year-olds"
Covering everything from how to survive and thrive in nature, to learning how to be savvy online, Andy McNab’s The Ultimate Survival Handbook is an engagingly presented, practical guide to grappling all manner of sticky situations with confidence. Packed with helpful how- to diagrams, photos and illustrations, the design is super-engaging, making it easy for readers to engage with the text.
Kicking off with “Surviving in the Wild”, we first learn about the importance of preparation through the three ps (planning, preparing and packing wisely) before discovering tips for surviving the cold and the heat.
Once armed with intel about the likes of making shelters and fire, and finding water, the protecting your mind” chapter could come in handy in situations beyond the wild outdoors, which neatly leads onto the book’s other focus. Namely, “Surviving in the City”, which covers things like what do to in an emergency if you’re home alone, and how to respond if you’re stuck in a lift or trapped in a car.
With another section devoted to “Surviving Online”, which includes the hazards of chatrooms, cyberbullying, doxing, and social media, this is a lucid, valuable handbook.
