I have a first grade son who is a reluctant reader so when he showed some excitement at the school book fair for this book we decided to give it a try. Ever since, it has been his constant companion and only choice for reading time. As a family we've learned to come out alive from shark attacks, natural disasters, mobs...you name it. The Survive O Pedia is a great resource for teaching survival skills and emergency preparedness to children with full color photos and easy to read passages. Any book that gets my children asking intelligent questions and coming back for more gets my full attention. I highly recommend it for 1st-6th graders.
