A lively, accessible introduction to the sciences for younger readers. Holzinger's unique approach promotes understanding of the ``framework'' of each scientific discipline, rather than just memorization of a list of facts. Each chapter gives an overview for one branch of science, interspersed with questions (each with a summary) and a list of fun activities. Answers to the questions appear at the back of the book. Illustrated.
