Reviews
What Makes You You?

“What Makes You You? would be an excellent classroom resource. It could easily be adapted to differentiated instruction for grades 5–12. Recommended.” -NSTA, 04/16 “Without burying its readers, this whirlwind tour of DNA and genetics packs in a surprising amount of information on evolution, DNA, genes, laws of inheritance, reproduction, the Human Genome Project, stem cells, and cloning. And that’s not even everything. While this is a lot to tackle, the book is extremely well organized and always supplies readers with page references so they can refresh on previously covered topics.” -Booklist, 01/16
