Biology for Every Kid: 101 Easy Experiments That Really Work, by Janice VanCleave. Ages 9-12. Some work better than others to explain concepts, but they're all good activities.

Real Science-4-Kids, Biology Level 1, by Rebecca Keller (2005). Ages 9-12. Also not high school level biology. Cute pictures and easy, enthusiastic explanations.

Biology: Life as we know it!, by Dan Green and Simon Basher (2008). Ages 9-12. A good intro, especially for homeschoolers - NOT high school level biology.
