100 Facts Extreme Survival book for kids covers key topics about surviving dangerous conditions in easily-digestible facts for young learners. Every page includes detailed illustrations and colourful photographs that bring the text to life for kids.

Essential topics covered in 100 Facts Extreme Survival:
• Individual stories of survival and inhabitants of extreme surroundings
• The basic requirements of the human body and its absolute limit
• Surviving in different scenarios such as being marooned on an island or spontaneous weather

Examples of 'I don't believe it' fascinating facts:
• In 1860, Burke and Wills led an expedition across Australia. They took 20 tonnes of kit loaded on six wagons. It made them so slow that all their supplies ran out, and only one man returned alive.
• Aboriginals sometimes drink from water-holding frogs. They dig up the plump frogs, which burrow underground, and squeeze them to drink the water.
• In 2007 two men got lost on a hike in a rainforest in South America. They ran out of food, and lived on beetles and poisonous spiders. They had no idea they had camped just 4 kilometres from the nearest town!

Activities to make learning accessible and interactive include:
• Make desert headgear to protect yourself from extreme sun exposure using cloth, a handkerchief and a thin piece of rope
• Quiz question: What island 'nut' provides a refreshing drink?
• Build a basic shelter with a stick that is longer than your body, two shorter sticks, string or rope and a plastic sheet. Bind the sticks together and drape the sheet on top
