"Botanical Embroidery Book" by Hiroko Aono-Billson
"Flotsam" is an amazingly beautiful book from David Wiesner about sealife and adventure, without words, but told in gorgeous illustrations. This book was a Caldecott Medal winner. I'd give it to a 5-8 year old, if you want them to deduce the storyline, but to a 3yr old and up just for the images alone.
