Best DNA book around Jun 9, 2008
I've pretty much surveyed the field of kid-oriented DNA books, and I think this one is the best. It's pretty wordy, but does a really good job of explaining complex ideas in truly understandable ways, not just glossing over the hard parts like many other books do. It's an excellent primer not just for kids but for adults too.
fun yet essential Jul 11, 2000
My five year old loved this book, because the comic strip quips held his attention as I read to him, but most adults could benefit tremendously, and yet painlessly, from reading this little book to learn how genes work. A wonderful children's book that everyone ought to read, at any age.
