More About Seymour Simon & Chronicle Books

Seymour Simon Seymour Simon, whom the NY Times called "the dean of [children’s science] writers," is the author of more than 250 highly acclaimed science books (many of which have been named Outstanding Science Trade Books for Children by the National Science Teachers Association). His free, educational children’s app, SCIENCE FUN TO GO, debuted in the Top 10 of all free children’s apps in the Amazon App store, and features in-app purchase of original Seymour Simon eBooks for iPhone/iTouch/iPad and Android devices.

Seymour Simon’s website is a unique online destination designed to engage children in reading, writing, and interacting with Seymour and his books, as well as to provide families and educators with a rich array of resources designed to enhance their children’s reading experience. In 2011, the website was named an Official Honoree in the Personal Blog/Website category in The 15th Annual Webby Awards, the only child-targeted website to win in the category.

The website provides free downloads of a wealth of materials for educators, homeschoolers and parents to use with his books, including 4-page Teacher Guides for all 28 of his Collins/Smithsonian photo essay books. The site also provides multiple resources for kids writing book reports or wanting to explore the online Science Dictionary. Classrooms and school librarians use the popular Seymour Science blog to stay up with science news, and to discuss and comment on current topics.

Seymour Simon’s books encourage children to enjoy the world around them through learning and discovery, and by making science fun. He has introduced tens of millions of children to a staggering array of subjects; one prominent science education specialist described Simon’s books as "extraordinary examples of expository prose." Simon taught science and creative writing in elementary and secondary schools and was chair of the science department at a junior high school in the New York City public school system before leaving to become a full-time writer. "I haven’t really given up teaching," he says, "and I suppose I never will, not as long as I keep writing and talking to kids around the country and the world."

Seymour Simon currently resides in Long Island, in the state of New York.

Reviews - What do customers think about Animals Nobody Loves?

In defense of misunderstood animals  Apr 7, 2002
I really love the concept behind "Animals Nobody Loves," which combines an easy-to-read text by Seymour Simon with a wealth of full-color photographs. In his introduction, Simon notes, "Animals are not bad or evil. They do what they must in order to survive," This educational book focuses on various animals that have been unfairly feared or hated throughout human history.

Animals covered in the book include sharks, bats, grizzly bears, cobras, vultures, and many more, including two of my personal favorite misunderstood creatures: the rat and the hyena. As the book progresses Simon generally sheds some light on the myths surrounding each creature. The photographs are striking, although 2 or 3 may be a bit gory for some readers. Overall, a good book.
