Overview

Wolves by Seymour Simon

Join award-winning science writer Seymour Simon in this picture book introduction to the leader of the pack: wolves!

Wolves are much more than big, bad animals that prey on other animals. Did you know that wolves…

  • are like dogs—they are loyal, affectionate, and highly intelligent.
  • live in packs—or families—led by the strongest female and male.
  • are friendly with one another: They play games, bring food to one another, and even babysit one another's cubs!

With clear, simple text and stunning full-color photographs, readers will learn all about wolves—their behavior and habitat—in this informative picture book!

Perfect for young scientists’ school reports, this book supports the Common Core State Standards.

This book features large, flashy photographs across from rather long pages of detailed information. We learn about different species of wolves, how wolves live and play together, and about how wolves have gotten a bad rap. The question at the end is: should the wolves be reintroduced into Yellowstone? (Obviously they have at this point.) The author doesn't say yes, but has certainly stood up for wolves.
