What makes me, me?
Winner, Junior Prize 2005

Robert Winston

Written by acclaimed author, scientist and TV presenter, Robert Winston, this book is the first children's book to attempt to unravel how biology and experience make each person individually themselves. Questions such as why do we have hairy fingers?', which of my parents is to blame for my fear of spiders?' and why are some people left handed?' are all debated and discussed in this innovative book. A revolutionary design and user-friendly text tell the story of the human mind and body from a child's point of view, while the tests and quizzes make reading the book an interactive experience and help children to see how the information relates back to themselves.
