Survival and Preparedness Books for Kids (#31)
I confess that survival books were never my cup of tea when I was a kid or young adult. Although I've seen these titles for years, I have not read most of them and never found myself in a teaching position where they were part of the curriculum.
I do know that most of these are widely read and taught. As always, preview each book to make sure it aligns with your family standards and values.
