Just wondering what people's recommendations/wish list would be for great science books that cover a variety of topics. Thanks to a family member, I have a great selection of history books, but we're short on science ones! Not only living ones, but the encylopedic reference type as well. Thanks for any suggestions!

I am sure you will get lots of recommendations for The Handbook of Nature Study by Anna Botsford and it is great. Here is another one we used quite a bit this year, The Practical Naturalist. http://www.amazon.com/The-Practical-Naturalist-DK-Publishing/dp/0756658993/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1337638301&sr=8-1
It is not a living book but it is an Audubon book published by Dorling Kindersley. I checked it out of my library before I bought it. It says it is an "inspirational guide to exploring, understanding, and observing the natural world." It has great pictures and we even use it for nature study when during the winter and when we can't get outside. It covers a variety of habitats.
