Jake & Miller's Big Adventure: A Prepper's Book for Kidsby Bernie Carr
Synopses & Reviews
A full-color illustrated children's book that shows how being prepared for a disaster can be a fun adventure.
Disasters are dangerous. Everyone — even one's young child — needs to be prepared. But disasters are also scary. So how do parents teach their children to be prepared without giving them nightmares? This book offers the perfect solution. Jake and Miller's Big Adventure introduces children to prepping in a nonthreatening way and even shows how prepping can be exciting! The entertaining story depicts bold Jake and his scaredy-dog best friend Miller packing for a big adventure into the wilderness. As the pair fills up their backpack with all the necessities for any emergency situation — from a first aid kit, crank radio, and blankets to packaged food, water, and a tent — the adventure they plan grows bigger and more thrill-packed. Soon, they're ready to trek across a blistering desert, scale a snow-covered mountain, and ride out floodwaters in a tropical rainforest. Finally when the big day comes, Jake and Miller have their bags packed and are ready to depart on their grand adventure . . . which turns out to be in the wilds of their own backyard, under the watchful eye of Mom.
BEING PREPARED IS A TON OF FUN!
The world can be a scary place! There are snowstorms and mean snakes, hot jungles and wild rivers. But intrepid adventurer Jake and his dog Miller arent scared —theyre prepared! In Jake and Millers Big Adventure, young readers discover its never too early to start prepping. Learning how to use life-saving survival equipment like canned goods, water filters, first aid kits, Mylar blankets and emergency radios can keep you safe, healthy and happy even in the scariest of adventures—whether youre deep in the jungle or hunkering down at home.
In this 32-page fully illustrated children's book, kids are taught the basics of helping their parents prep for any disaster by turning learning why safety matters in a fun adventure.
Jake and his scaredy-dog, Miller, go around the house packing for a journey into the wilderness. They start with an emergency pack to hold everything they're going to need, no matter what happens and no matter where they end up. Next they fill their pack with everything from a first aid pack, crank radio and emergency blankets to packaged food, extra water and a tent to sleep in.
As the story continues and Jake and his dog fill the pack, their imagined adventure gets wilder and wilder, taking them from the forest behind the house to remote corners of the world. Every place the two adventurers imagine is drawn in a two-page spread and paired with the survival item they'll need to stay safe. What happens if they end up in the vast desert? They'll bring extra water!
In the end, Cooper and Miller leave for their grand camping adventure...which turns out to be safely in the back yard under the watchful eye of mom.
