Unusual Traits: Tongue Rolling, Special Taste Sensors, and More

Out of stock
Did you know that distaste for broccoli can be caused by one’s ability to taste a bitter chemical? And that asparagus makes some people’s pee smell funny? These are among the unusual inherited traits covered in this book. Weird facts steal the show, while bright backgrounds and playful photos add to the appeal; boxed captions help to keep things clear. Subjects include genes, tongue rolling, mirror writing, and ability to smell different substances. A “Track the Traits” classroom activity appears in the back matter, which also contains a glossary, further reading, a publisher’s link for more resources, and an index.
