Horn Book Review

Brief chapters introduce the basics about the microscopic cells that determine characteristics of successive generations of humans, animals, and plants. Spreads include stock photos and diagrams plus occasional fact boxes and sidebars supporting the difficult concepts. The books' scientific complexity may be technically beyond their target readers, but their short length, easy-to-parse page design, and large type add appeal. Reading list. Glos., ind.
