Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The illustrations in Enjoy Your Cells are fantastic....this is no boring biology textbook. Rolph's illustrations are rich....and many have entertaining text bubbles....The book is jam-packed with information for both kids and parents. I'm a biologist and I learned new things from the book. Balkwill works hard to make all this material accessible to young minds...The book certainly made a lasting impression on my daughter....She...even asked to bring the book to her preschool. It's pretty neat to see how Enjoy Your Cells has given her a new way of looking at the living world."
