We were doing research for the "Dinosaur in Your Backyard" Magic School Bus experiment when we came across a really cool zip code dinosaur finder Discovery link. I think I was actually more excited about it than Solana: she thought we were going to go outside and start digging for bones and wasn't as interested once she realized that wasn't happening. Another book that has inspired us is Dinosaur Valley by Mitsuhiro Kurokawa. We've read a lot of dinosaur books, but this one has the most gorgeous illustrations as well as the theme of the mother protecting her babies that Solana loves.
