This whimsical multi-award winning book of rhymes with beautiful watercolor illustrations details how a little girl's curly hair makes her mornings difficult. Inspired by Rose-Vallee's daughter Lauren, now immortalized in the book as the hapless Sabrina, the response to rhymes like those excerpted below has been enormous from both boys and girls:

I think I see movement.
Is Mom really right?
Do dinosaurs live
In my hair out of sight?

"Dinosaurs Living in My Hair!" received the Florida Authors and Publishers Association President's Book Award in two categories, Gold in Poetry and Silver in Cover Design. The book also received the Mom's Choice Gold Award for Children's Picture Book.

Praise For Dinosaurs Living in My Hair

"Told in rhyme each page of verse contains four lines that give the story a singsong quality, while Matsick's big, colorful illustrations help kids see Sabrina's entanglements. The authors are at work on subsequent volumes in the series, and give the warm tone of the story and its relatable main character, there's certainly potential for more. This charming, engaging story offers a funny look at what happens when a child's imagination unfurls."--Kirkus Reviews

"Izzy LOOOOOVES her book; it's one of her favorites to read! It has honestly helped her accept her hair more . . . She has an easier time with me brushing it. (It) makes Izzy's little heart happy to know she's not the only one out there with curly hair." -- Katie Veraldi, Michigan

"My kids had me read 'Dinosaurs Living in My Hair' four times last night. It's such a cute story!" -- Carly Cazzaza, Michigan
