Author Biography

A Tech Marketer by day and writer and musician by night, Dolev has written many short stories. After his first child was born, he started focusing on children’s books, as he gets regular inspiration from his kids. Their imagination takes him back to when he was a kid, connecting between unrelated things and blending them into a story. As a parent, he tries to use that same method and reply back to kids, each time with a different message that will help them overcome the obstacles of life they have to cope with.

Dolev resides in North Carolina and has a wife and three kids.

Milo The Albino Dino is a children’s picture book written by Dolev Zaharony and illustrated by Marian Naseif. The story starts with Milo, an albino massospondylus dinosaur. His congenital disorder is rare amongst other dinosaurs, making him one in a million. While it is cool to be different, Milo has a few issues related to his disorder that prevent him from participating in normal dinosaur activities. Over time, he gets really upset that he can't get along with other dinosaurs, so his mum suggests he find another albino dinosaur with whom to play. Excited by this idea and with the help of his other dinosaur buddies, Milo goes on an adventure to find his new friend. Unexpected friendships ensue in the unlikeliest of places.

Milo The Albino Dino is a wonderful story about the struggles of being albino. Young children may feel discouraged about being different from others, and their inability to do what a normal child can. However, Milo The Albino Dino embraces this difference and turns it into a positive outlook. This story also teaches the value of friendship and the importance of helping one another regardless of differences. I really admired the precious lesson Dolev Zaharony successfully depicted in this story. Everyone has unique abilities that make them who they are as an individual. The story also teaches that because somebody looks different from the outside, it doesn't mean they are all that different on the inside!
