#LoveMadeVisible: Dinosaurs Living in My Hair 2, by Anni Matsick

Here’s a spread by Anni Matsick done for the sequel to Dinosaurs Living In My Hair! by Jayne M. Rose-Vallee, showing five friends who love sharing time together. Kids spend a lot of time focusing on their differences. DLIMH2 takes a look at what happens when five friends discover what they have in common: first grade challenges, curly hair, and . . . dinosaurs? The fun begins when these “surprising similarities” help them find the courage to stand up to classroom bullying. The book will be available this spring from Rosevallee Creations.



Anni Matsick is a children’s illustrator who lives and works in Boalsburg, Pennsylvania. She was a presenter at eastern PA SCBWI’s 2017 Fall Philly. Two of her watercolor paintings of children are included in Splash 19: Illusion of Light to be published this spring by North Light Books.

    Hunt for the eyes in their hair—a clue to what’s in store.
