DNA video for kids

We've been looking for videos that can help teach young kids about DNA, sort of supplementary material for our book. Unfortunately, so far we haven't found any we really like (and believe me we've looked). Many animations that talk about how DNA is replicated or proteins are synthesized but never tell you for what or why. Anyway, here is one short clips that we think has kid-friendly elements although a little confusing in the way it starts with genes and moves to DNA rather than the other way around.
