Much more than a simple listing of facts about DNA, this informative book combines playful rhymes, high-quality illustrations, and a humorous story with relatable, well-developed characters to guide children through a personal discovery of DNA and provide them with a motivation and process for scientific reasoning and questioning. Two young children search everywhere for the instructions used for making them—in the chest under the bed and a dark forest nook, on a mountain ledge high overhead and a shelf holding books—only to be led to the unbelievable discovery that the instructions are right there inside them in a jillion places all at once. Written to be accessible to young children, this book details key information on where DNA is housed and how it is used in our daily functions, all while laying a foundation for scientific inquiry and pursuit.
