How to Replicate a Wood: A Story Inspired by the Amazing Cell Division Process (Paperback)
The widely reaching forest is made of many smaller woods, all alike and each surrounded by a stone border. In these woods the animals live and play.
When a neighboring wood is destroyed, the animals in one of the forest's little woods are very sad. They don't want to look over the stone border and see nothing but burned tree stumps and blackened ground. But what can they do? Their leader, the wise she-wolf, has an idea.
Hidden in the center of the animals' wood is a mysterious bubble, and in that bubble lies the Book of Secrets. If they copy the book exactly, then it will help them create a new wood to replace the one that died. To do this, the she-wolf will need the help of every animal in the wood, from the meticulous puma to the powerful elephants. Even the tiny, slimy snails have an important job to do.
Based on the wonders of cell division, How to Replicate a Wood introduces children to one of the most incredible biological processes in the world through a playful, magical tale.
