"In this journal you and your child will learn what's edible, what's poisonous, how to build fires, tie knots, how to make a shelter; first aid, how to purify water and so much more. My son is still a bit young to work in the journal by himself, but we work on it as a family since we live on the bush line and feel these are important skills for our kids to know regardless of age or gender. " - Deborah

" For those thrust into homeschooling recently, you may not understand how Thinking Tree books work. They are not traditional workbooks with a set of directions that a child uses to practice a skill. Instead, they provide a creative platform and gentle guidance for documenting a study on a particular topic or topics. So you collect a few books, documentaries, activities, etc. related to a topic and use these pages to record what you are learning. We loved using this book with our nature guides and Bear Grylls’s how Survival School for my seven year old. Bear Grylls books are another great companion with this book. The pages give you topics to research and write about (first aid, medicinal plants,shelters,etc.) but sometimes we just use them to record what we are interested in, instead. For example, we don’t hunt so the page on hunting was used for more animal observations. I love the creativity and flexibility of these journals and my son loved the topic of this one! "

" What a great book to learn and record your outdoor survival skills including flora and fauna...what's edible, what's poisonous, etc.; how to build fires, tie knots, and make shelter; first aid and orienteering; and how to find and purify water. The book also has some scenarios to practice your survival skills. My son and I are going to take my 10 and 14-year old grandsons and these journals to the woods on a friend's property and have "Survival School!" These are skills everyone should know, especially those who travel, camp, hike, or otherwise are around wilderness areas! Do some research using books, videos, or websites and fill out the journal pages then take them out and practice what you've learned. They have even included survival scenarios! " - Nancy
