Discover the mystery of science with Future Geniuses!

Little Doctor Valentina is back with a brand new adventure! This time, join Valentina as she explains the concept of genetics, using her adorable puppy, Mendel, as her model.

With her handy microscope, Valentina examines Mendel’s cells and teaches us all about cell parts—organelles, membranes, cytoplasm, and finally, the powerhouse of the cell, the nucleus. Within the nucleus, Valentina points out the DNA and the genes that explain everything about us—like why Mendel is yellow and his siblings are brown!

Dive deep into the world of genetics and learn all about nitrogen bases, RNA, chromosomes, mitosis, and more. Uncover what makes you, well, you!

Future Geniuses is a collection that will help families spend a lot of time reading and learning together. Through simple text and fun illustrations, author and scientist Carlos Pazos makes the subject of genetics approachable and easy to understand for even the smallest scientists.
