Overview


Learn how to face and survive the most dangerous and disastrous things that could possibly happen!

From natural disasters to dangerous weather, from the dangers of getting lost in the wild to fighting off dangerous animals, any child can imagine the special skills they'll need to combat 100 real-life dramas.

Each danger is rated by how likely you are to encounter it, as well as how likely you are to survive; from the unlikely event of being struck by a meteor (with minimal chance of surviving), or being attacked by a bear, to the more likely event of successfully surviving a flood or forest fire.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Colleen Kessler
In this highly graphic reference book, Anna Claybourne chronicles some of the most dangerous things one may encounter and discusses what to do in such instances. From natural disasters to animal attacks to dangers caused by humans, Claybourne creates a guidebook middle grade readers will love. This is a fun book. It is full of stunning photographs and sidebars, which together make it an easy and engaging read for reluctant readers. Right up a boy reader's alley, it features a "Risk Rating" for each dangerous thing highlighted. From rare to frequent, items are rated with one to five skulls and crossbones. Text is organized in bite-sized chunks on each two-page spread, separated by headings, making it easy for readers to learn what they want about the different topics. Reviewer: Colleen Kessler
