...the point of this story, I'll tell you right now.Did you ever sit down and think about howIt is that each time a baby's bornIt's a baby -- not a rabbit or an ear of corn?" The answer is in DNA -- the stuff that genes are made of. Twin brothers Joel and Ira Herskowitz, physician and scientist, respectively, have come up with a new way to explain to children (ages 8+) how it is that when a person's genetic message is "copied," the result is another human being -- not a rabbit or an ear of corn. Based on a song written by Joel Herskowitz while he was in medical school, the "Double Talking Helix Blues" is a book and audio tape presentation on the structure and function of DNA. The book includes the text for Joel's song, which is illustrated with spectacular paintings by Judy Cuddihy to provide an important visual component to the overall "lesson" on DNA.
