What was that book? 1970s or early 1980s science book for kids, illustrated with black and white photographs.

A question turned up on another "what was that book" forum that I was sure was about a book I owned, except the cover got torn off my copy early on and I never really registered a title or author. So now I'm ransacking my memory!
The cover had, as I recall, rows of smaller "iconic" images arranged in a larger square: a frog, a rainbow, etc. It was softbound. It was a general science book, explaining everything from tastebuds to light to sex (one of the best, most straightforward explanations of sex I've ever seen) and included experiments like training a beansprout to grow through a maze. It was illustrated with black and white photos of kids and simple black and white line drawings. I think the author may have been female.
