Dinosaur book suggestions

I know this isn't a "classic" book request, but my four-year old is into dinosaurs now and I'd really appreciate some book suggestions. We would be interested in age-appropriate factual books as well as fictional stories.

Bonus points if it's anything about Maiasaura, the "good mother lizard."

I think My Visit to the Dinosaurs might be more about the paleontology and museum side of things, but has lots of factual info.

There's also Syd Hoff's Danny and the Dinosaur, and there are sequels now too!

Hans Wilhelm's Tyrone the Horrible and its sequel, Tyrone and the Swamp Gang, are out of print now, but still available cheaply. They were two of my brother's favourites when we were little (although the story is not so much about dinos per se; they could be bears or raccoons and the plot would still work).

Thank you for all these great suggestions. The first one is especially good as we are going to London in the spring and we'll definitely be going to the Natural History Museum. So it would be great to prepare her for what she'll see there.
