    What Does DNA Stand For?: An Awesome Baby Biochemist Review

    by

     What does DNA stand for?  I would never have thought I could find the answer in a picture book.  "The Baby Biochemist-DNA" does an incredible job of nailing the important aspects of DNA structure.  Primary kids even will understand what DNA does in their cells.  They'll get a jump-start on biology concepts they'll learn more about in high school.  I recommend this book for primary, middle school and high school kids.  Its straight forward, simple but bang on explanation of cell structure down to the DNA level is also entertaining.  The illustrations are fabulous.  This is a must add to your book collection for any level of science teaching.
