The Worst Case Scenario Survive-O-Pedia

When Timberdoodle asked me to review The Worst Case Scenario Survive-O-Pedia Junior Edition, I expected the book to be a bit young for my 12-15 year-old kids, but an excellent gift for my 8 year-old nephew, Merek.    Well, I’ll be buying Merek his own copy because our copy has been thoroughly claimed! 
It’s been enjoyed at the dining room table,

in the car,

(and since we’re being real here)  in the  bathroom.

If you want to know how to survive amnesia, a deserted island, flu pandemics, quicksand, riptides, the woods, a lion attack, or, sharks, The Worst Case Scenario Survive-O-Pedia will come in handy.  And even if you never find yourself in any of the 65 life threatening situations covered in this book, you’ll have a lot of fun discovering interesting facts such as:

Visual agnesia is when people mistake objects such as parking meters for people

Surfing the mud in a mudslide is not recommended.

The oil from poison ivy will not affect your pet, but may be passed on to you.

If a komodo dragon’s deadly teeth don’t kill you, it’s drool will.
The facts in this book inspired tons of conversation, as well as some interesting reenactments

If buying this book from Timberdoodle’s Holiday Guide for a gift, you’ll want to be sure to pick one up for yourself!  

In exchange for a frank and unbiased review, I received compensation for this review.

  1. What a cool book! (And I find that some of the kids BEST READING and LEARNING is in the bathroom! Great place to stick up some informational posters! LOL)
