Usborne Science Encyclopedia
Learning science is both interesting and exciting with this very readable encyclopedia.

Each section covers over 20 major topics. This is one of those books that can be read cover-to-cover (it is hard to put down!) or used as a science reference book.
Ideas for more than 140 experiments and activities are included. The appendices include 30 review questions for each section, Earth & space facts, lists, and brief biographies of great scientists. Contains some old Earth dating and evolutionary language. Adult supervision recommended for younger children if using the Internet. Paperback. Ages 10 & up.
