How to survive...
How to survive… - an extremely successful series for 8 to 14 year olds
Over 2 million copies sold!
Francine Oomen is one of the most popular and successful author of children’s books in the Netherlands. In recent years her books won all the awards granted by the Dutch Children’s Jury’s. Francine Oomen is best known for her How to Survive...-series (Hoe overleef ik…). In the thirteen volumes published so far, we follow the lives of Rosa and her friends. Rosa (11 in the first book, almost 17 by now) struggles with growing up, her parents and - most of all - love. Rosa and her friends extensively e-mail, text and chat online about all their ups and downs.
Francine Oomen renders a lively depiction of the problems modern day adolescents are facing, and combines their stories with ‘survival tips’.
The basic principle in the How to Survive...-series is ‘empowerment’: to support the readers in discovering themselves and to develop confidence, self conscience and to teach them how to make their own choices.
The thirteenth next volume in the series has been published in September 2010.
