Description

In Wolves, Seymour Simon reveals the facts about one of nature’s most misunderstood and maligned animals, the wolf.

Wolves are much more than big, bad animals that prey on other animals  . In Wolves, Seymour Simon reveals the facts about one of nature’s most misunderstood and maligned animals, the wolf. While there is no record of a wolf ever killing a human in North American, folk tales often portray wolves as either "big and bad" or as cunning swindlers. As Simon notes, "by learning about the wolf and how it lives in the natural world, we can begin to tell the difference between the real animal and the fables we’ve created.

Seymour Simon not only talks about wolves as a species of animal, but also about the relationship between . Even though that’s the case, people seem to be really afraid of wolves, and Seymour Simon looks into that in his book.

Seymour Simon not only talks about wolves as a species of animal, but also about the relationship between wolves and human beings. The sad thing is, because of our fear of beautiful wolves, they have been hunted by people to near-extinction

The book also covers hues that may be difficult to see (such as white wolves against snow), and colors that blend together (such as the blush pink of a flamingo). Readers also learn about instances in which nature changes colors, as when leaves turn from green to red and brown in the autumn chill, or when the sky turns from blue to gray when a storm approaches. It’s not an easy task to craft a children’s science book that’s comprehensible to younger readers without ever feeling dumbed-down.

I ordered this book for my son before he could read for himself, and I think he was just too young for it at the time. The photographs of wolves in the wild are beautiful and interesting, but there is only one large photo for each page of text. My little boy kept wanting to flip to the next page before I was finished reading because there are several paragraphs of information per page and reading it took longer than his attention span could handle.
The book is informative and good for kids who are interested in wildlife, plus it has a conservationist message. There were bits of info I thought were interesting, such as the different subspecies of wolves in North America, the fact that packs have both an Alpha and a Beta wolf, and about wolf-dog hybrids that are sometimes kept as pets. (The author says this is dangerous due to the wolf personality being unsuited for domestication).
Even though my child was a bit too young for the book, it's still an interesting wildlife book I'd recommend for children approximately ages 7-11.

Beautifully done as a combination of full page color pictures with large print on the opposing page. Engaging for young an old who like their information served up with great big color pictures like I do. This was a great book for my son who had heard me explain that our "domesticated" dogs were descended from wolves and how it was a shame that so many people feared them instead of cherishing them as part of the whole ecosystem and beautiful in their own right.

purchased as a Christmas gift for my 8 year old who loves wolves...this is listed as a 'core' friendly book and in my state the 'core standards' are all over the place. my daughter reads 2 levels above her grade, and i feel safe in saying that she will still enjoy this book and the facts in it. I feel confident purchasing a book from the Smithsonian for her in hopes that she may learn something new about her favorite animals. The pictures are good, and the reading is fairly easy.

A lot of first rate photo's that could be one reason for buying it, there is not a great deal of writing but just enough to keep you interested, you will feel like howling with appreciation.

Bought 'Wolves' for our grandson, who thoroughly enjoyed, and continues to enjoy this book. Excellent information and beautiful pictures that combine to tell an incredible story about these fabulous, though feared and misunderstood, creatures. From young to old this book is sure to fascinate and please any reader.

My 5 year old is obsessed with wolves and so we have checked out just about every book in the library on wolves, etc. This book is better than any we have checked out there. The pictures are great,and I was surprised about the amount of text in this relatively short book. There is quite a bit here to read and some pages are completely full of text. It is a good resource and I can see having my son use this as a partial basis for a paper on wolves later. I recommend this book.
