Publishers Description

When the unmanned spacecraft Galileo landed on Jupiter in 1995, what mysteries did it uncover?...

Jupiter is so large that more than 1,300 planet Earths could fit inside.

The Great Red Spot on the planet is actually an enormous hurricane that changes in size and color over the years.

More About Seymour Simon

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 Destination: Jupiter?

Destination: Seymour - We love him!  Jan 29, 2006
This was a Christmas present for our 5 yr old who has recently discovered the thrill of our solar system. He reads it continually and has many of Seymour Simon's other books about our solar system. He loves them so much and has started sharing them with some of his friends. He constantly relates planetary trivia to me which shows me that he's not just looking at the pictures.

This Jupiter book is written incredibly well. I'm amazed at how Seymour Simon can speak to a 5 yr old and adults. The artwork and photographs within the book are incredible. I love this and all of Mr. Simon's books we've seen so far. I highly recommend this as a reading tool for any kid that is interested in planets or space in general. If they love the book, they'll keep reading!
Good book. Great information and pictures.  May 8, 1999
This book has fun and interesting information for any age readers. It also has great color pictures of the planet and moons!
