       Whether outdoor enthusiast or arm-chair adventurer, children will find practical and fascinating information within the colorful pages of this book. I confess I fell in love with this book as I read the disclaimer: “You should NEVER put yourself in dangerous situations to test whether this advice really works….” Interest piqued! Subject matter is divided into 4 sections: Animal Dangers, Natural Dangers, Human Hazards and Basic Survival Skills. Each topic is covered in a 2 page spread and provides brief background information and steps to survival. Topically, children will learn what to do if bitten by a snake; how to escape a bear; how to survive an earthquake and hurricane; how to escape from a car in water; how to escape ship; using a Swiss Army knife; knot making, first aid and much more! Glossary and index included. 96 pgs, SC. ~ Deanne

    Leasing a car, buying on credit, planning a budget - these are just a few examples of "survival math skills." This book contains 46 reproducible activities, each of which is categorized by math content and computational skill for easy integration into your math curriculum. Activities are organized into eight main topics: food costs & nutrition, transportation & vacation costs, saving & checking accounts, household budgeting, buying on credit, job benefits & income, taxes, and miscellaneous. Teacher pages and solutions are included. Although no grade level is recommended, I would recommend these activities for middle school to high school students because activities require students to work proficiently with monetary computations, percents, proportions, and decimals. ~ Anh

    Although we could never fully comprehend the horrors of the Holocaust, stories such as these open our eyes to the inhumane treatment many received at the hand of Hitler. This is the story of how Jack Mandelbaum, who was twelve when he was taken by the Nazis, survived Hitler. Based on historical fact and Jack's memories, you learn about the Holocaust as you follow his story; the invasion of his home, being torn from his mother and brother to work, moving around from death camp to death camp working, fighting to stay alive in diseased and starving conditions, and ultimately, his liberation. ~ Steph

    "A Conversational Handbook for the Thoroughly Befuddled." Yup, that's what it's like, alright. Just like a friend to help you through those "hard times" in math. This book kindly takes you by the hand and incrementally, step-by-step and question by question, teaches you the whys and hows of algebra. The book is even formatted to appeal to algebraically turned-off students, sympathetic to their predicament, but ready to "deal with it". The self-teaching, self-paced text has received accolades from students, teachers and publications ranging from Home Education Magazine to The Washington Times. Every page, or bite-sized "mini-lesson" is presented in question and answer format. There are five "types" of pages (designated by muted graphic): Mind Munchies (introduce/explain concepts), Bare Bones (information to memorize cold), Step by Step (how to do it), Pitfall (common mistakes/misunderstandings to avoid), and Target Practice (practice problems) plus QuikCheck problems (boxes on these pages with just a few problems to make sure students grasp the concept taught on the page). These are gathered into 12 content sections: Properties, Sets of Numbers, Positive & Negative Numbers, Order of Operations & Like Terms, Absolute Value, Exponents, Radicals, Factoring, Cancelling, Equations, the Coordinate Plane, and Word Problems. The new 2nd Edition of this book also includes a final chapter on Advanced Algebraic Word Problems (additional questions and solutions for this chapter are not found in the 1st edition workbook, but links are provided to find this material online). Altogether they constitute a complete Algebra I course. You can use this book as an Algebra I text (especially good for math- or algebra-phobic students) or as a comprehensive reference for students who are using another algebra program, but have difficulty understanding certain concepts.

    How close have you been to throwing in the homeschooling towel and putting your children in school? How close have you come to burnout? Ann Lloyd, the author of this "solutions manual," has been there and done that. After years of homeschooling her children - and one move - she came to the END and made the decision to enroll them in a private school. That year was an eye-opening experience, and the wisdom God gave her as a result is being put to good use in encouraging other homeschooling mothers. The tips and tricks described in this 190 pg book are Lloyd-tested and, if implemented, will help protect your determination, ease your stress, and simplify your life. Loosely divided into ideas for home, school, and mom, I was pleased when I could nod and say, "Yep, I've done that, it works!" (One list, one trip.) Many times I found myself thinking, "She's hit the nail on the head! This is a wonderful idea!" (Yearly homeschooling portfolios - simplified - which provide cherished memories as well as encouragement, insight, and confidence.) Throughout the entire book I marveled at how well she knew the trials and struggles we face. (To feel successful as a homeschooler, you must be realistic about what homeschooling can and cannot do.) Trying to describe the key ingredient in this book, I would say that it is perspective. Lloyd invites us to step back, take a deep breath, take a good look at our lives, and make changes if necessary. For each of us at some particular point of time, it could make all the difference.

    When I first read My Side of the Mountain as a young girl, I was fascinated with the possibility that someone – especially a young person – could live off the land, foraging for wild food. This basic survival guide, authored by Jean Craighead George and her son, Twig, provides the curious reader with more information on outdoor survival, framed by excerpts from the novel. This is not only a great tie-in to the book, but also serves as an excellent first survival guide, or even a jumping-off point for an outdoor survival unit study. Short chapters cover: camping, types of shelters, building a fire, finding water, possible protein sources (fishing, fresh roadkill, even bugs), outdoor cooking, edible plants, poisonous plants, tying knots, tracking animals, bird songs, falconry, hiking and trailblazing, navigating, outdoor safety and recipes to try. The brief and easy-to-read text is accompanied by green, sketch-like illustrations and occasional diagrams. While you'll find more limited content here than in other survival guides in this section, this one is well-written and very accessible for younger readers and is likely to pique their interest in learning even more, or trying some of the activities and recipes. 138 pages, pb. – Jess

    Boys' Life is a classic part of the Boy Scouts program – the magazine has been around for over 100 years now. As a Cub Scout, I always looked forward to it coming in the mail: getting to read stories of adventure, how-to and First Aid articles, and general guy-stuff (oh, and the comics of course). The Boys' Life Book of Outdoor Skills combines decades of Boys' Life content into a single volume, with fantastic articles on equipment, survival, how-to, and stories of Scouts in action. It's a literal treasure trove! This is one book that the Scouts in your family (or any other boys) will read over and over again. Not only is it just fun to read, it's fully illustrated (all of the full-color articles are left as they were originally published in magazine format) and super practical as well. There are articles about how to build your own canoe or snow cave (or indoor home rifle range, if you feel so inclined), how to treat heat exhaustion or hypothermia; stories about scouts surviving in the wilderness or climbing the Grand Teton, and of heroic rescues after bear attacks or fire accidents. There's always been something special about the Scouting program; it's had a huge impact in helping boys gain the skills they need in their lives as men. Plus, what boy doesn't like learning how to rough it in the wild and use knives and fire? 192 pgs., hc. – Chad

    The vast majority of us spend virtually our whole lives in towns, cities, or some other relatively developed area, surrounded by hundreds or thousands of people. The possibility of being lost or stranded out in the wilderness is certainly a rarity, but also a fascinating possibility to most of us. Although we may fantasize about being stranded far away from civilization, building fires, signaling for help, or hiking along a river, generally our thoughts don't go into collecting sometimes unsavory morsels such as insects to eat, or thinking of a way to carry water with us. This is the fascinating aspect of the book.

    The title sums it up pretty well, I'd say. Let's start with "complete." Complete must mean the way it covers nutrition, fitness, basic survival equipment, items you should have in your camping kit, survival kit, and basic tools. Then it launches into a description of how to tie basic knots, choose an appropriate campsite, build a shelter or raise a tent (which alone can be an intimidating feat for some of us), build fires, clean up camp, and find and collect water, while making it safe to drink. Now that we have water, what about the food? The next section features detailed descriptions of good foods to take traveling followed by plants, fungi, invertebrates, and fish which can be used for food if necessary, along with those which are poisonous or dangerous. And it doesn't stop at the eating of fish - it also tells how to catch them using your home-made hooks, harpoon, or one of a number of basket traps. The book next moves into cooking methods and improvised utensils. Then we learn how to find our direction using the stars, sun, compass, some map basics, and how to navigate the topography, including snow or crossing rivers, which leads us right into how to build a few basic rafts or boats.

    And... each main topic I've mentioned has been adapted to include survival skills that apply to several major, very diverse settings such as a temperate woodland, rain forest, desert, or cold climates. The book concludes with an appendix on surviving at sea, some dangerous creatures found around the world, natural hazards and extreme weather, signals (semaphore, ground-to-air, and Morse code), and of course, a sizeable section on first aid.

    Whew! On to the training part. The manual gives easy-to-follow instructions on how to build each structure, tool, or fire discussed, with plenty of pictures or photos of just about EVERYTHING so you can try out these survival skills in your own backyard.

    At 192 pages, the book covers a wide breadth of topics in a variety of settings and takes into consideration whether you're alone or leading a group of survivors so, while the range is huge, the amount of coverage on certain topics may be a little brief. This is not only an excellent survival resource for the beginner or more experienced adventurer, but is also a great resource to complement your camping excursions, backyard adventures, unit studies, or just to fire up your imagination!
