In my opinion, but I am only a student, Dileep Rajeev, Learning Chinese Characters : An Ideographic Approach can be similar.
More simple the Ollie Guest, Chinese Charactes etymology.
Also Peng Tan Huay, Chen Huoping, Fun With Chinese Characters (3 vol.) is amusing.
There is also a discussion in https://www.chinese-forums.com/forums/topic/44854-resources-on-character-etymology/ forum.

There are also sites like http://chinese-characters.org/ , documents like http://nihongo.monash.edu/Etymological_Dictionary_of_Han_Chinese_Characters.pdf and so on.
http://hanziyuan.net/ don't give explanations, because a lot of etymologies in the previus version were false.

It is impossible to indicate the "real" story of a great number of characters: there were a lot of schools before Qin emperor, and- like explain https://www.outlier-linguistics.com/ - there are "strange" illogical changes in the shape's evolution.
After all, the majority of characters have a relevant phonetic part.

So I thinkthat a "picture books dictionary " has didactical goals ("Early Educational textbook Course"), so we can use different books.

P.S. other books:
JIANHSIN WU, The WAY of CHINESE CHARACTERS (The ORIGINS of 670 ESSENTIAL WORDS)
