Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Youngsters learn to manage sticky situations without coming unglued in What If? A Kid's Guide to Surviving Just About Anything by Lynne Gibbs, illus. by Richard Morgan. The paperback volume offers practical advice for country- and city-dwellers, such as "How to survive in the wilderness" and "Encounters with dangerous animals," as well as more commonsense tips on first aid and more (e.g., "Stranger Danger... Unless a parent or caregiver has told you that it is safe to do so, never go off with someone you do not know").
Children's Literature
Would you know what to do if you encountered an angry bull? Can you create a sling to support an injured arm? What if you were lost at sea? These are just a few of the situations covered in this survival guide for kids. In an age where wilderness survival shows are topping the television ratings, this is a book full of real-life information for navigating dangerous situations. While it is highly unlikely that most of these scenarios will ever be encountered, children often daydream about what they would do if they were responsible for getting themselves or others out of danger. The multitude of fiction adventure stories that feature adolescent characters facing life-threatening dilemmas can provide an interesting balance to this practical guide. Some of the segments that children will likely try out include sending signals with Morse Code, following animal tracks, measuring wind speed, and treating insect stings. Some of the advice seems very far-removed from the life of the average child; for example, the warning to back away from a mountain lion rather than curling into a ball probably won't come in handy anytime soon. However, a child with an active imagination may tuck this away as important information for later. The guide does provide a form list for useful contact people and warns against stranger danger. 2002, McGraw-Hill Children's Publishing,
