Published by Richard C. Owen, 2000

ISBN: 1-57274-374-3

Ages 7-10

Growing up as a city kid in the Bronx, Seymour Simon explored the natural world by playing in a vacant lot near his house and by reading about far-off places. His interest in how the world works led him to become one of the best-known science writers for children. In an easy autobiography illustrated with color photographs, Simon talks about the sorts of topics that interest him and how he goes about doing research for his books. He also talks about the quiet times he still enjoys exploring the natural world right in his own neighborhood.
