Re: 1970s Children's dino book

Did it have a yellow time line at the bottom
stretching through every page? If so it's a
bracheosaurus on the front. And the Mural God himself
does the art. 

I think that's one of the big four (from the late
sixties/ seventies anyway). HOw and Why wonder book,
Little Golden Book of Dinosaurs, (my fav and first
dino book) Big Little book/my little book of dinosaurs
and the one I think you are  describing. 

I wonder how many know Dinosaurs and more dinosaurs.
It's got the weird shadow art that still gives me
pause as it creates a feeling I don't know if I can
