Read full description of the books:
WOW! I thought I was going to have a hard time with the genre of informational text but I actually read two books from this genre, this one being my second! I thought this book was so much fun and such an interesting way to look at animals that might not be most of our favorites. The book is filled with great pictures and facts about animals that may not be considered "warm and fuzzy." The author is able to take these animals and provide readers with facts about them that make them seem not as bad as you might think which makes it entertaining for the readers. I had such a great time looking at all the animals and reading things about them that I never knew!
I thought this would be a great book to have in the classroom! It could be used during a science lesson on animals to introduce the students to animals they may not know about. The students could choose an animal from the book and do further research on it to learn more about it and then present their animal to the class. Since the animals are not well known it would be entertaining for the whole class! The students will definitely be intrigued by the pictures and facts about these animals and how they live in their natural habitat! I loved this book and I would definitely use it in a classroom of my own!

He 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 is also a creator and the author of a series of 3D books and a series of Glow-in-the-Dark Books for Scholastic Book Clubs, a series of leveled SEEMORE READERS for Chronicle Books, and the EINSTEIN ANDERSON, SCIENCE DETECTIVE series of fiction books. His 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."
Seymour Simon has been honored with many awards for his work, including the American Association for the Advancement of Science/Subaru Lifetime Achievement Award for his lasting contribution to children's science literature; the New York State Knickerbocker Award for Juvenile Literature; the Hope S.

In a recent interview Simon was asked if he ever thinks of retiring. "I seem to be working faster and harder than ever. I absolutely don't feel any urge to sit back and look at what I've done. The only things that I'm thinking about are things I'd like to do in the future. I'm planning and doing and continuing to write. It's what I love to do. I remember a story about an anthropologist going to talk to a tribe and he asked them what was their word for "work." Their response was they have no word for work. Everybody does the things that they do in their life. I love that response. I don't differentiate between work and play. Everything I do is something that I enjoy doing - the writing, the research and everything else."
Seymour Simon writes and photographs nature from his hilltop home in Columbia County in upstate New York, where he lives with his wife Liz Nealon.
