Genes for Babies
There is no better way to introduce baby to deoxyribonucleic acid. Pictures illustrate the 23 chromosome pairs, a chromosome showing DNA winding around histones, the double helix, a replication fork, transcription, and protein translation.
This book will teach and entertain with its bright contrasting patterns and engaging crinkle sound. The cotton fabric book measures approximately 11.5" X 5.5" (29.2 cm X 14.0 cm) when open. There are 6 printed pages not including the cover. "By Verdant Violet" is printed on the back in small type.
I drew the images digitally and had the fabric professionally printed using a method that wastes very little fabric, ink, water or electricity, using eco-friendly, water-based inks and no additional chemicals. The fabric has been pre-washed with a mild detergent.
In addition to batting for thickness, I've sewn a clean, safe, post-consumer food-grade plastic inside every page to create the wonderful crinkly sound that babies and even some adults love!
The book is made by hand in a smoke-free environment. Babies should always be supervised in play. Spot clean with a damp cloth, and air dry."
