About the Author:

Buffy Silverman is the author of many books about nature and science for children. She also enjoys writing poetry for children. Buffy is lucky to live in a rural area of Michigan where inspiration is just outside the window. The sun shimmers on Stony Lake. A great blue heron flies low over the swamp. Black squirrels scamper across oak branches, stuffing leaves in their mouths and bringing them to a hollow. The animals that share her yard inspire stories and poems. With every book and article she writes, she learns more about the world.

From School Library Journal:

K-Gr 2-This series is a serviceable introduction to genetics. Each book begins with a similar text, explaining what traits and genes are and how they are passed on by birth parents. The volumes then discuss specific traits as indicated by the various titles. Children are encouraged to examine their own bodies and those of friends and family to check for differences. Each page has only a few sentences, but a decent amount of information is nonetheless conveyed. The large color photographs are sharp, reinforce the concepts being explored, and are usually accompanied by clarifying captions. Every volume contains a "Track the Traits!" activity with clear directions.α(c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
