Seymour Simon's books have a lot of good information but the way they are organized is a little tricky for primary kids to access. I use these with my second grade class as we do our planet reports, but we end up using these after we've found all the important information in other books. Then we browse through his books to find what we call "special information" (extra information about what makes our planet special).

This is a book my school uses for Close Reading Lessons. Like all Seymore Simon books, it has really great photos, which makes learning come to life for students. This book was in excellent condition, and a great resource in my room.

I found this book at the library and am considering buying a copy for my home library. The writing was on the perfect level for a K/1st-grader and the images (beautiful color images) held my and my son's interest. It is such a quality book that it seems more like a "gift" or keepsake book than something I'd find jammed on the shelf at the library. I also appreciate that it stayed away from questions of the origins and age of the earth - so regardless of a parent or educator's take on creation/evolution, this book could be used with ease and enjoyment.
