Robert McArthur | 1 comments This book, about Noah's Ark, was published sometime between 1945 and 1952 and is a picture book for children probably ages 7-10. There is a good deal of text and the illustrations were very detailed paintings. All pages were in color. As I recall the book was around 6 inches x 10 inches. One unusual aspect was the inclusion of dinosaurs. I do not recall the name of the author(s). It was not a Little Golden Book.

I'd suggest using Worldcat.org to search for old children's books.

http://www.worldcat.org/advancedsearch > Keyword: "noah's ark" | 1945 - 1952 | Juvenile | Book | English

There are a number of matches (e.g., Noah's Ark by Dorothy Bell Briggs).
