A fascinating look at how our family history shapes us, and the links between us and our ancestors. From genetics and evolution to our environment and our families, this entertaining book looks at all the factors that make us into the people we are. It explains how physical characteristics and abilities are passed down through generations, and why some things are inherited and others not. It explores how evolution has shaped us as a species, and at how the world we live in has impacted us too.

It also looks at intelligence, where it comes from and how we learn, our personality and how we build relationships with other people, and how and why we form memories.

Fun activities at the back of the book help you to find out more about who YOU really are!

Suitable for children aged 8+, this book supports the science curriculum covering topics of genes, DNA, inheritance and evolution, as well as social and emotional issues such as belonging and identity.


This book crams in a huge amount of information, yet the presentation is uncluttered and really encourages children to read ... it's a big and complex topic, but it is really well explained so children gain a full understanding ... I highly recommend this book for its understandable approach to highly complex subject

A complex subject, but one which is clearly explained, with brief summaries of each topic clearly set out on vividly coloured pages. From genetics and evolution to our environment and families, the book looks at all the factors that shape us into the people we are ... a very well-written and accessible book.
