More About Seymour Simon & Berry Fraser

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 Pets in a Jar: Collecting and Caring for Small Wild Animals (Puffin Science Books)?

Lovely and practical book for the junior zoologist  Aug 23, 2007
We loved this book when we found it in the school library, and when we had to return it, I decided we needed a copy for at home. It covers 15 different kinds of little, common wild animals that children are likely to find, and how to care for them. None of the equipment is expensive or difficult to find (all the instructions are based off of a 1 gallon pickle jar). Issues like responsibility to the animal and the importance of leaving endangered creatures in the wild are covered. The book is written in a tone that respects the child as a scientist. The information is clear and reliable and sets the young scientist up for success.
