The Baby Biochemist series explores basic concepts of biochemistry so that parents and children of all ages can discover this invaluable field. Also a great gift for expecting or parent biochemists, The Baby Biochemist series will give them a laugh while revisiting the foundations of their field with fun and adorable illustrations and descriptions, no matter how many times they are asked to read it. In this volume, the Baby Biochemist discovers the many roles of RNA in our cells. Learn what RNA is, what it does, and some of what we don't know! Inspire your older kids to dive into the unknown, or just enjoy the silly pictures with your baby. It is never too early to introduce concepts that will make our children better consumers of knowledge. Everyone should feel that science is in their grasp and we hope this series can help prepare kids (and adults!) for encountering these concepts in school and life.
After earning a PhD in Biochemistry and working as a bench scientist in industry, the author decided to stay home with her young daughter, the best thing biochemistry had given her. She realized many basic models in her field were easily illustrated and explained to kids, so "The Baby Biochemist" was born.
