He turned 81 on Thursday, August 9th. He grew up in the Bronx and taught science for 25 years, always interested in bugs, plants, lightning, and planets – all things found in the city!
His 1st book is Science in the Vacant Lot. Now he has published over 250 books!
His favorite book – The Paper Airplane Book – inspired this cool video - check it out!!
He now is offering his books as ebooks through StarWalk Kids Media. You can read about this on his website.
He also has a post each Wed – Writing Wednesdays and students can write in to respond to his post. I plan to share this idea with students and teachers. He also has Teachers Guides available for each book! What a treasure Seymore Simon is! I loved hearing him speak in person!!
