Read full description of the books:
My review on this book is; I never knew the great white shark had it's own movie named jaws and I also did not know they lay eggs and been here 400 million years ago and I knew the whale shark was not the only biggest shark 400 million years ago there was a shark bigger than the whale shark named the Megladon it's called that because it's the mega shark bigger then a t-rex and whale shark it swallows everything whole except the t-rex. A shark can feel a injured fish 30,000 feet away a shark can smell tiny bits of blood and track it down it does not matter how far it will still track it down. A shark can hear a injured fish thrashing away a shark is so fast it will catch the fish. Here's a few tips to protect yourself from a shark: 1. Do not swim in where sharks have been seen, in places garbage or waste are dumped. 2. Always swim in group. Sharks attack single people. 3. if you have a cut stay out of the water until it stops bleeding. 4. Remove jewelry before you go swimming, sharks likely to attack bright or shiny objects. 5. Do not panic! tuck your arms and legs towards your body and try your best not to move the more you splash around the more interested the shark will be in you. By D'Angelo St. Arrommand

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.
