    The series They Survived (6 titles) quickly pulls readers into unfathomable situations overcome by individuals both past and present. A brief introduction will have kids holding their breath as they turn the pages to learn about these amazing individuals and the hardships they endured. A relaxing surfing practice turns into a fight for Bethany Hamilton's life in Surviving a Shark Attack, after a shark bites off most of Bethany's left arm. Told in a fast-paced, exciting tone and filled with well-chosen photographs, these titles afford readers a realistic glimpse into the lives of incredible individuals and will inspire them to face their own hardships with resilience and hope. Titles include pages detailing survival gear used, such as a sextant when navigating (Surviving Antarctica) and a hydration pack (Surviving a Canyon), as well as recommendations for surviving deadly situations.
