Wolves by Seymour Simon: Book Review

Author Seymour Simon and the Smithsonian museum have teamed up to bring all you science and nature-loving kids out there an amazing new full-color non-fiction book called Wolves.

As you might imagine, the book is all about wolves. Part of what makes it a really great read are the big, bright pictures that go along with the text so you can see exactly what the author is saying about these amazing wild animals.

The text itself is also really big and easy to read, which is great.

Seymour Simon not only talks about wolves as a species of animal, but also about the relationship between wolves and human beings. So many people who live in North America (Canada and the United States) have a relationship with wolves – we share some pretty close quarters at times. Even though that’s the case, people seem to be really afraid of wolves, and Seymour Simon looks into that in his book.

The sad thing is, because of our fear of beautiful wolves, they have been hunted by people to near-extinction. Even plans by wildlife managers to reintroduce them to special areas of the continent are met by a lot of opposition from many people.

This book is designed to set the record straight and to show wolves as they truly are – not animals to be feared, but creatures to be respected, that we must learn to live together with in peace and harmony.

Some of the things you will learn in this book is that wolves are pack animals and highly intelligent. They generally don’t attack humans unless they are provoked, and rarely even then. They mainly hunt small game like mice and rabbits and play a key role in keeping the populations of certain small creatures under control. They are shy and solitary creatures that rarely interact with humans and human property, despite lots of myths about wolves attacking livestock on farms and ranches.

This book is an excellent read and will tell you a lot about how wolves live. It does a really good job of teaching you that we have nothing to fear when it comes to wolves – they really are nothing more than a wild version of the domesticated dog many of us keep us house pets! By reading this book you will learn how wolves act, which is not much different than your own pet dog.
