Book Trailer Premiere: The Secret Code Inside You : All About Your DNA by Dr. Rajani LaRocca and Steven Salerno

Happy, happy Friday! I'm premiering the book trailer for Dr. Rajani LaRocca and Steven Salerno's The Secret Inside You: All About Your DNA in anticipation of Rajani's virtual book launch tomorrow at 4:00 p.m. ET. (Details below.) Happy watching! 

From Porter Square Books: 

Join us to celebrate the launch of brilliant local author (and MD) Rajani LaRocca's newest picture book, The Secret Code Inside You: All About Your DNA! Rajani will be joined on-screen by award-wnning author Melissa Stewart (Fourteen Monkeys). This event is virtual, free and open to all, hosted on Crowdcast.

Learn about the secret code that is DNA in this vibrant and informative picture book!

There's a secret code inside you, a code called DNA.
A code that tells your body's cells what they should do each day.
It looks like twisted ladders, or tiny, twirling noodles.
It makes us into people, instead of into poodles.

Why can't humans breathe underwater? Why are some people tall and others short? Why do we resemble our parents and grandparents? This book explores all this and more in flowing, rhyming text, explaining cells, DNA, and genetics in a way that is simple and easy for children to understand. Colorful and brilliantly illustrated, The Secret Code Inside You illustrates that while DNA may be the blueprint for how a person looks, what you choose to do with your body is entirely up to you!
