Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Cathi I. White
Why do some people have brown hair and others have blonde hair? How can one person in a family have curly hair and another have straight hair? These questions, and many others, are answered in this wonderful, educational book. Readers will learn that people have different traits from other people, such as the kind and color of their hair. Hair differs in people because of the genes they inherit from their parents. The genes will determine the color of your hair. These genes may come from one parent, such as those who inherit brown hair from their father. But it may take genes from both parents to have a certain trait, such as having red hair, which is not very common. Readers will also discover how genes control the pigments that make different hair colors. In addition, they will be enlightened as to what alleles are and how they help make a person's distinctive traits. Also discussed are some unusual hair traits, such as a widow's peak. Children will enjoy the easy-to-read material while looking at the photos that enhance the information. There are activity pages in the back for children to complete with their classmates to increase their knowledge. Furthermore, there is a glossary for better understanding key vocabulary words and a section for further reading, which includes websites, to help children learn more about genes and traits. This informational book is part of the "Lightning Bolt Book" series "What Traits Are in Your Genes?" This enlightening book would be excellent for the classroom. Reviewer: Cathi I. White
