The egg is among the largest cells in an organism, while the sperm (spermatozoon, plural spermatozoa) is often the smallest. The egg and the sperm are optimized in opposite ways for the propagation of the genes they carry. Our 7-year son and 4-year old daughter love this book! It’s hilarious! When children’s friends visited and read the book too, they were in stitches! Really fun way of teaching children about how the sperm joins to the egg and the foetus starts to grow. I’ve found it’s the parents who get embarrassed, not the children/5().

While the tail may appear to be one long continuous structure, it is divided into several parts that include: Connecting piece – This is the part that connects the flagellum to the sperm head. Midpiece - In some books, the midpiece is described as part of the tail. It contains mitochondria and. The Sperm Cell - edited by Christopher J.

Although this is an analogy, it actually works very similarly: while many sperms participate in the race, only one of them will be the privileged one that will fertilize the egg.   Sperm and eggs are the cells that can make a baby. The beginning cells of many animals -- but not all -- start to grow when an egg cell joins together with a sperm cell. This is the way humans make new babies. In fact, the beginning cells of a human baby can start to grow only when a sperm cell and an egg cell have joined together. (3)Pages:
