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.

Basic Beginnings for Early Explorers  Feb 23, 2007
This book is visually appealing and simple to understand for young children. Basic facts about our solar system that will make recall easy for youngsters (my son now 4 loved this book at age 3!). This book is a great place to fule a child's interest in the night sky and our place in this vast universe.
Great additional resource of basic facts  Nov 27, 2003
My 3rd grade son reads below grade level and is a very visual learner. This book is full of great, real, photos and straight-forward facts. He loved reading it and looking at the photos. It really helped reinforce what he was being taught in school about the solar system!
Just The Facts, Mamm.  Apr 10, 2003
PLANETS AROUND THE SUN works rather well as an introductory book to the planets of the solar system in the Milky Way. The book briefly discusses the nine planets of the Milky Way, the Earth's Moon, and the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter. The last page in the book displays a chart that illustrates, among other things, the distance of each planet from the sun; each planet's orbital period; amount of moons; and the amount of rings. There are several basic space facts scattered throughout the thirty pages, e.g. the winds on Neptune blow at over 700 mph. The thing that separates this book from others of it's kind that I have read are it's bright and vivid pictures. The pictures are full of color and contrast and bring to life the uniqueness of our solar system. Overall this is a wonderful book to introduce children to the wonder and miracle of space.
An astronomy book that covers the basic facts  Oct 17, 2002
"Planets Around the Sun," by Seymour Simon, combines many astronomical photographs with an easy-to-read text. The book is a basic overview of the planets of the solar system. A sample of the writing style: "We live on a planet called Earth. [new page] Earth is one of the nine planets that travel around the sun."

The book includes a comparative chart that lists each planet along with basic facts: distance from the sun, orbital period, number of moons (if any), etc. The book sticks to only the most basic facts; for example, the moons of Mars and other planets are not mentioned by name.
