Genetics for younger children
We've been reading and enjoying this, and the companion book on genetics, Have A Nice DNA. There is some overlap between the two books. The same author has two other books, titled: Amazing Schemes Within Your Genes and DNA Is Here To Stay. I haven't been able to tell if these are older versions of the same books or if there is a difference in content or level.
It seems that all four books are bright and varied enough to hold the interest of pre-elementary children who have heard of DNA and want to know more, and may be getting over-simplistic by the time children reach the end of elementary education.
