Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Mysterious You series explores the mysteries of the human body using an exciting mix of thoroughly researched factual information, amazing anecdotes and surprising try-it activities. In Baa , kids unravel the mysteries of genes and see how traits like dimples and hair colour are passed down through their family tree. They can then explore the secrets of cloning — what it is and what changes it may bring in the future. Kids can learn about * natural selection * genetic mutations * DNA and forensics * gene mapping * cloning in nature and in the lab * future predictions With simple language and kid-friendly examples, Baa helps demystify an intriguing, but often difficult-to-grasp, subject in a way that kids can understand.
