The title of this post is the Danish, English and Hungarian onomatopoeic spellings of the sounds of bees. Our good friend Marc Fischer—AKA Public Collectors—gave this fantastic book about the lifecycle of honey bees to our daughter. He picked it out because of the really rich illustrations throughout the book by illustrator Traudel Hoffmann. It was published in the GDR (East Germany) in 1977.

We are posting some of our favorite pages here, but will put every page on our tumblr with the tag #zümzüm. We will eventually put all of the pages together and make them available as a PDF. If you find similar books and send them to us, we will send something to you in exchange.
