Overview


Practical and fun to read, Survival Tricks and Tips is an illustrated introduction to the great outdoors for kids. This sturdy hardcover book tells how to set up camp, find protection against sudden storms or extreme temperatures, know the proper clothing and gear to take on prolonged stays outdoors, and become familiar with the many do's and don'ts that both children and adults should know before spending time in the outdoors. Young readers will enjoy taking the book's short quizzes, which are designed to help them assess their own survival know-how. They'll also find tips on--

  • Reading a compass and determining directions when a compass isn't available
  • Erecting a makeshift shelter and tying secure knots
  • Making maps and laying down a trail as protection against getting lost
  • Learning semaphore signals and Morse code
  • Surviving accidents, and much more.

    This collection of survival information is presented in quick, easy-to-read summary-style segments that are supplemented with sidebar tips and brief tales of men and women who survived dangers in the wild. Campers will want to stuff this guide into their backpack before starting out on treks into the wilderness. Attached to the book's inside back cover is an envelope filled with paper that campers will find handy for making maps or notes and for leaving messages. The book's extra-large spine holds a pull-out compartment containing simple but practical survival tools--a whistle for signaling one's location to rescuers and a small direction-finder compass.
