The must have junior guide to survival in the New Zealand bush. What do you want your child to know if they are ever lost in the bush? What basic survival steps will they need to follow to increase their chances of being found? These are questions for every parent or person responsible for young children today. In a world in which many children no longer have the exposure to bushcraft and the basic skills that came naturally from living and playing close to the natural environment enjoyed by previous generations, this wonderful book will assist parents and teachers to impart the knowledge that may one day save their lives. In a non-preachy storytelling environment, experienced children's author Lindy Kelly gently encourages a realistic sense of personal responsibility and safety in young children, without scaring or overdramatising the topic, so that they have an enhanced appreciation of the New Zealand bush, and the ability to cope if they find themselves lost or in an unfamiliar situation. With superb illustrations by Pauline Whimp.
