Kids books can be kind of depressing, it is hard to find one that doesn't suck or that won't make you insane reading it over and over. You definitely need to wade through a lot of them to find a decent one, even though anything interesting can be worth paging through with a little infant (she like a surrealist exhibit catalog, for examle). I suppose that is why they have libraries, so you can always refresh things. But that is no help here, so you get what you can.
I did find here this great series of books on bugs, three different, scientifically correct, very well illustrated books, one on beetles, one on butterflies, and, my favorite, one on bees. They are well done books. The lil Buddha seems to like them alot, even though they are geared toward kids several years older I think.
But reading the beetles book, my eagle eyed wife observed this curious choice of bug to teach to kids: the Cockchafer. Surely, of the millions of bugs out there, this was an uncommon choice for a kids' book?
