This book introduces the science of genetics to children. I dislike using the term "dinky amigos." It reminds me of science class in middle school when a student teacher, on a day the regular teacher was out of town, defined the term "villi" for us. When the teacher returned, she asked us what they were. We gave the very memorable answer to her. She was absolutely shocked at the vulgar definition we recited back to her. The man never taught our class again and failed his student teaching. Perhaps the term "dinky" appears in all books published by "Dinky Press." If students cannot understand the science terms, perhaps studying the subject when they can is preferable to using a cute term that may cloud their thoughts when they advance in their studies. ( )
