Description

From the award-winning team behind Tiny and Lots comes a new book exploring another fascinating area of biology: growth.
“Vibrantly illustrated, this is a fascinating and accessible introduction to the concept of DNA for five- to eight-year-olds” Guardian

A beautifully illustrated introduction to the concept of DNA for younger readers. All living things grow – every plant and every animal, including human beings. Some things grow fast and others grow slowly; some things grow by tiny degrees, while others grow to be enormous. Yet there’s something about the way we grow that links us all together. Ever since you were the size of a dot, your body has been following a set of instructions: a code, which connects you with every creature on the planet… With words from Nicola Davies and exquisite artwork by Emily Sutton, this groundbreaking book is certain to enchant and inspire children.

“Explaining the concept of DNA to young children sounds an impossible task but this book succeeds beautifully.” Sunday Express

Publisher Review

Featured in The Daily Mirror. * The Daily Mirror * Explaining the concept of DNA to young children sounds an impossible task but Grow: Secrets Of Our DNA succeeds beautifully. * Sunday Express (S Magazine) * Vibrantly illustrated, this is a fascinating and accessible introduction to the concept of DNA for five- to eight-year-olds. * The Guardian * This time, the subject is human DNA, but Davies's gentle prose and Sutton's languid drawings give the book a similarly dreamy quality, which will appeal equally to children and nostalgic parents. * The Telegraph * Featured in The School Librarian's '8-12 Information' section. * The School Librarian *
