The secret code inside you : all about your DNA  Cover Image Book Book

The secret code inside you : all about your DNA / Rajani LaRocca, MD ; illustrated by Steven Salerno.

LaRocca, Rajani, (author.). Salerno, Steven, (illustrator.).


"There's a secret code inside you, a code called DNA. A code that tells your body's cells what they should do each day. It looks like twisted ladders, or tiny, twirling noodles. It makes us into people, instead of into poodles. Why can't humans breathe underwater? Why are some people tall and others short? Why do we resemble our parents and grandparents? This book explores all this and more in flowing, rhyming text, explaining cells, DNA, and genetics in a way that is simple and easy for children to understand. Colorful and brilliantly illustrated, The Secret Code Inside You illustrates that while DNA may be the blueprint for how a person looks, what you choose to do with your body is entirely up to you!"-- Provided by publisher.
