Seymour Simon is a former teacher and the author of over 200 science books for children. More than half of his books have been named Outstanding Science Trade Books for Children by the National Science Teachers Association. He lives in Great Neck, New York.From School Library Journal:
Grade 1-3-These easy-readers are dominated by large, colorful photographs. Many of those in Danger! appeared in Simon's Earthquakes (Morrow, 1991) and some are poorly reproduced, often grainy. A few lines of generally clear and informative text accompany the illustrations on each page. The numerous examples in the first book tend to focus on earthquakes that scored highest on the Richter scale. Giant Machines uses simple language and easy-to-understand comparisons to explain the size and capacity of these mechanical marvels. The illustrations are crisp and clear and will grab readers' attention; one features a giant dump truck with tires twice as tall as a person and another shows a huge tractor that looks like a futuristic bug. Both volumes include tear-out "collector's cards" that families might enjoy but will soon disappear from library copies.
