A short overview of this book
Grow: Secrets of Our DNA by Nicola Davies is a lovely book that provides a scientific explanation of where we come from. You could also use it to talk about diversity and why we are all different (and alike).
This is a book that explains to kids that we grow and change for a reason. Plants, animals and humans. And that we all come with a set of instructions that control how we look and how we grow.
And despite the complexities of DNA, genes and genetic codes, the author explains it all in a very simple, child-friendly way.
This book DOES NOT talk about sexual intercourse, but it does explain where babies come from.
