"National Geographic Investigates" introduces young people to cutting edge techniques of scientific investigation, the most current discoveries, and the way that those discoveries are interpreted to throw new light on our understanding of ourselves and the world around us. Special features include: sidebars explaining the latest technology being used by scientists, a 'Meet the Expert' sidebar presenting an interview with a scientist currently working in the appropriate field, timelines placing research and researchers in historical context, and lavish design including photographs, illustrations, and diagrams. Ever since the cloning of Dolly, genetics has been a hot-button topic in the media and in politics. Find out what all the excitement is about, the pluses and the minuses. From the Human Genome Project to stem cell research to the Society's own Genographic Project, scientists around the globe are exploring and advancing the human condition.

Review:

“My son loves these books. We started reading National Geographic Kids books when he was about six (he's nine now) and I can honestly say that these books have been instrumental in teaching him to read.” – Consumer

“My kids love these books. Super fun and interesting.” – Consumer

About the Author:

The National Geographic Kid is curious about the world around them, empowered in the face of challenges and responsible for others and the natural world. Combining these principles with the international educational heritage of Collins, this partnership is a natural fit for books that are funny, weird, exploratory, educational and loved by children.
