Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jody Little
This interactive text is a fun way for reluctant readers to learn about the outdoors and what it takes to survive on your own. Readers have three story paths to choose from: Alone in Alaska, Surviving Down Under, and Lost in the Cascades. Readers will test their knowledge of what to do when approached by a bear or a cougar. They will choose whether to leave their injured companion and seek help or to stay and find food. They will choose whether to cross a river or find a safe, dry path around. They will decide whether to spear fish or set rabbit traps for food. Readers will learn that one wrong choice could have serious consequences, even death! Riding on the popularity of survival television shows, this book has high appeal for elementary students. Readers will likely finish their path of choice and then go back to attempt a different scenario. Information on real survivors, internet sites, a quiz, glossary, bibliography, and an index are also included. Reviewer: Jody Little
