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.
