Plants and Animals of the Pacific Northwest: An Illustrated Guide to the Natural History of Western Oregon, Washington and Briti
By Eugene N. Kozloff
University of Washington Press, 1978
This book covers a wide range of plants and animals from Western British Columbia down through Western Oregon.
It has a very good section on non-insect invertebrates (snails & slugs, centipedes & millipedes, sowbugs & pillbugs).

It is also divided by habitat, rather than Classification.

Life in the Undergrowth (DVD)
By Attenborough, David
BBC Warner, 2006
Though this is a BBC special, there are insects featured from all over the world including North America.

This rivals Microcosmos as far as the cinematography goes, but has the addition of Attenborough's natural history nuggets of info on different species as well. This is a must for any fan of Bug Guide!

Secret Weapons : Defenses of Insects, Spiders, Scorpions, and Other Many-Legged Creatures
By Thomas Eisner, Maria Eisner, Melody Siegler
Belknap Press, 2005
A very nice introduction to Thomas Eisner's work on chemical ecology of arthropods. If you haven't read any of his work, you are in for a treat and an inspiration.
It is full of great facts and references that would be great for fleshing out guide pages.

Host plants of leaf beetle species occurring in the United States and Canada
By Clark et al.
Coleopterists Society, Special Publication no. 2, 476 pp., 2004
The leaf beetles are among the most conspicuous beetles on plants. They are perhaps best known for their phytophagous habit, a trait that has assured for them an enduring place of importance. Many species are quite host-specific, feeding only on a single plant species or on several closely related plants. However, others are generalists that feed on a wide variety of plants.

This host list is a cross-indexed catalog to the known plant associations for the leaf beetles (Megalopodidae, Orsodacnidae, Chrysomelidae excluding Bruchinae) of America north of Mexico and of Hawaii. Plant association records from the literature are summarized for 1,341 leaf beetle species occurring in the region. Under each beetle species, associations are briefly recounted, typically listing the plants as they were originally cited, sometimes as common names and sometimes as antiquated scientific names. The modern scientific names are given as well.

WHAT GOOD ARE BUGS? INSECTS IN THE WEB OF LIFE
By Gilbert Waldbauer
Harvard Unviversity Press, 2003
This book is aimed at the general public and as such the text is very lightly sprinkled with scientific names. Should you wish to investigate something further, then the carefully selected reading list for each chapter becomes very useful. I've already used it with great advantage.
In it I found something profoundly true and worth bearing in mind when you next spot a bug:
"For every insect we see, there are tens of thousands that we do not see, because they are small or hidden beneath the soil, within a plant or an animal, under a rock, or in some other "crack or crevice" of the environment."
