Reviews for Amazing DNA

Horn Book Guide Reviews 2008 Spring
At a steady pace, Johnson builds one scientific concept at a time using authentic terminology and connecting new information to familiar things (chromosomes are like "scrunched-up...clumps"). Full-color microscope images, drawings, and cartoons appear in a clean, uncluttered format, combining solid science with humor, which should appeal to the intended audience. Reading list, websites. Glos., ind. [Review covers these Microquests titles: Amazing DNA, Mighty Animal Cells, and Ultra-Organized Cell Systems.] Copyright 2008 Horn Book Guide Reviews.
