Large Color Children’s Books

In July 2007 Sunset Magazine there is a photo of Lisa Anne and Daniel with what looks like a large color picture book of bugs, perhaps it is for young pre-reading children? I was wondering what it is Title and Author, or your recommendation for a good bug book for children.

The book in the photograph is Living Jewels by Poul Beckmann. It is not a book for children, but rather a coffee table book of incredible photographs of beetles with almost no text. Years ago, the Golden Guide to Insects by Herbert S. Zim, Ph.D. & Clarence Cottam, Ph.D. with Illustrations by James Gordon Irving was a popular book. It seems is it out of print, but we did locate the Golden Book of Insects and Spiders by Saurence P. Pringle and illustrated by James Spence which may be the newest version of this excellent book for youngsters.
