Why do children resemble their parents and siblings Introducing young readers to the fascinating world of genetics this educational resource presents the main concepts of the science including what a chromosome does how DNA is structured and how genetic inheritance works Students learn about new discoveries in the field of genetics and how those discoveries have helped to cure or even prevent certain diseases as well as examine controversial issues. The text of the book regarding experiments are good but the comics used to illustrate the points and make them relatable are ridiculous A black male scientist is shown talking down to a dumb white female in the first chapter to explain the concept It came across as racist and misogynistic although I am sure the illustrator saw it as very woke We will not buy any other books in this series as homeschooling is about education not indoctrination
